Taylor Swift Bests Lil Wayne's 'Carter III' First-Week Sales

Taylor Swift

Lil Wayne has held the title as the only musician to sell more than a million copies in his first week since Tha Carter III hit shelves in 2008, but he’s forfeited his crown to Taylor Swift.

The country-pop star’s newest album Speak Now debuted atop the Billboard 200 chart this week, selling a staggering 1,047,000 copies, the largest sales week since 50 Cent’s The Massacre moved 1,141,000 units in March 2005.

Swift not only joined the milli club, but she also earned the second-largest sales week of a country album since 1991. Garth Brooks is the only artist since then to cross the seven-figure mark, selling 1,085,000 copies of his 1998 album Double Live in its opening week.
