Taylor Swift's New Album A Huge Success!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Taylor Swift`s Speak Now has come through with a huge debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart this week. Selling 1,047,000 copies in seven days, she`s the first artist to sell a million that fast since Lila Wayne`s Than Carter III in 2008.

Taylor Swift`s pop-country confection isn`t my cup of tea, but I commend her on her achievement.

Taylor hasn`t succumbed to the many temptations in the music industry, she`s a charming young lady and I wish her continued success.

In years past it wasn`t unusual for a pop star to move over a million albums in its first week of release, but in this post-CD era it doesn`t happen very often.

I don`t know a music download from a hole in the ground; I hope that the success of Swift`s new album delays the eventual demise of the CD format.
