Taylor Swift breaks Spotify record

Even though its existence was announced just 15 hours before its release, Taylor Swift’s “Folklore” album sold more than 1.3 million copies globally in just 24 hours, according to Republic Records, which released the album.

According to the announcement, the album also broke the global record for first-day album streams on Spotify by a female artist with 80.6 million streams, and delivered “the most-streamed pop album on Apple Music in 24 hours” with 35.47 million streams.

Final first-week numbers will not be available until a week from Monday, but the album could well be on track for the biggest debut of 2020, a mark held by The Weeknd’s “After Hours” until last week, when it was surpassed by Juice WRLD’s posthumous album “Legends Never Die,” which clocked 517,800 album-equivalent units in its first week — the first album to shift more than 500,000 units in its first week this year, according to Rolling Stone’s album charts.

“After Hours” debuted with 460,000 units in March.
