| October 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

Taylor Swift can do no wrong, at least to her fans. According to Nielsen SoundScan figures, “Red” sold 1.2 million copies in its first week of release, giving Swift her biggest debut numbers in an already stellar career and the biggest since Eminem’s 1.3 million sales with “The Eminem Show” in 2002. This will be the 22-year-old singer’s third album to top the chart, following 2008’s “Fearless” and 2010’s “Speak Now.”

Red” shot to the top of the iTunes charts just 36 minutes after being released in the U.S. on October 22, and sold nearly 465,000 copies through Apple’s iTunes alone in its opening week.

Coming in at #2 was Kendrick Lamar with his “good kidd, m.A.A.d city” album. Kendrick sold more than 240,000 units of his debut album. Kendrick also landed at #2 on Itunes for the week as well.
