New Taylor Swift Single Breaks Record
Taylor Swift's new single, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," broke the record for biggest digital sales week for a song by a woman with 623,000 sold.
From the ArticleThe previous high-water mark among female acts was Ke$ha's "TiK ToK," which moved 610,000 on the chart dated Jan. 9, 2010 (reflecting the busy post-Christmas week of 2009). Swift also nets the largest debut week among women, shattering the 448,000-unit start that was logged by Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" (Feb. 26, 2011). ("Born This Way" racked up that figure after only three days on sale -- it bowed Friday, Feb. 11, 2011 and the SoundScan tracking week ends on Sunday of each week. Swift's song starts with a little over six days' worth of sales.)

Pretty lame song, she's definitely had better singles in the past. Still better than Tik Tok though.

Taylor Swift is so much better than this song

When I first heard this song I had no idea it was he. Totally different sound than her other music.

Wow that's insane. I like the song - congrats to her.

Good for her.

That's sad.

Taylor is better than this song and I think her albums as a whole have regressed since her self titled, but I will always think it's awesome when women are doing so well. She clearly knows what works for her and her demographic, but I will still wait on the day she releases an album filled with awesome songs like Safe and Sound that have a more mature vibe.

Congrats to her

I don't know why, but she just bothers me. Something about her just seems so trite.

Song is awful. Don't cut her off in traffic, she'll write an album about you.

Weird that Bieber is so low on that list. That song had hype for weeks and weeks before its release and Taylor drops her song out of nowhere and crushes everyone.

Too bad your grammar is as well.
