Taylor Swift's '1989' tops US Billboard 200 chart
December 26 , 2014
American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift's studio album ‘1989’ has again topped the US Billboard 200 chart. Released on October 27, 2014, the pop album has sold a total of 375,000 sales units in eight weeks.
The achievement becomes especially credible in the light of steady decline in album sales due to the increasing trend of individual song downloads and Internet streaming. Swift's album has become the second-best selling album of this year. Rapper Nicki Minaj's new release ‘The Pinkprint’ is placed at No. 2 slot with 244,000 total sales units.
Reflecting Swift's style of writing about love, the content of '1989' delves into the complexities of human relationships.
