Last night, Taylor also performed on the “Dancing with the Stars” results show performing her hit single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” Check it out below! Red had the highest first-week total in a decade, since Eminem’s The Eminem Show debuted with 1.3m in June 2002, finishing behind The Beatles’ 1 compilation, which sold 1.26 in January 2001. Taylor is the first artist since Eminem to have two first-week million sellers in a row. In addition, Swift will set the record for largest, non-99-cent-sale-priced digital album, besting the 420k digital first week most recently set by Mumford & Sons’ Babe.
Country-pop princess Taylor Swift has announced a mega tour supporting her latest album Red, which will kick off in March next year in Omaha, Nebraska.
