Taylor Swift is like the golden egg goose for record producers. Billboard sources estimate that Taylor Swift is going to sell more than 1 million “Red” units in one week. If that pans out, Taylor Swift could become the first woman since 1991 to have two albums that sold more than $1 million units in a single week.
For the heartbroken, Taylor Swift is their favorite treatment for heartache and best soundtrack when falling in love. “Red” was just released but Billboard sources say it is “red hot” and estimate the album will break the 1 million mark within the first week of release. If that happens, Taylor Swift will have two albums breaking that 1 million mark.
“I think the one thing that I want my fans to get from this album is that I want them to blast it in their cars and dance in their bedrooms alone to it, and if they need to, have that really pathetic cry in the bathtub, that they would choose one of my songs to do it” Taylor Swift told MTV News in a recent interview.
And the secret to success is exactly that: fans are pleasantly surprised to find out that Taylor Swift’s heartache is so similar to theirs. “Like these are real moments in life when we need music, and I just hope that they choose my songs to be the soundtrack” Taylor Swift said of her new album.
“There’s new territory covered lyrically, and storytelling-wise, there are a few stories that I’ve kind of written observing other people’s lives and reflecting on that” the singer confessed. “I think you’ve got 16 new possibilities for people to learn about me, and I’m really excited” she added.
Last Friday, in an interview with Katie Couric, Taylor Swift revealed she’s just like many, many other people today. Having a normal relationship isn’t something she just knows how to do. “I don’t know how to have a normal relationship because I try to act normal and love from a normal place and live a normal life” she said “but there is sort of an abnormal magnifying glass…on everything that happens between me and anybody else”.
