“Lover” Sells Nearly a Million Copies Before Release

Taylor Swift keeps making headlines and we still can’t get enough! 

The 29-year-old singer-songwriter’s upcoming album, Lover, which is scheduled to drop this Friday, is already making sales news. 

Republic Records executive Monte Lipman has revealed the album’s resale numbers — and it is jaw-dropping. The new album has already nabbed nearly one million pre-sale orders. 

“The anticipation of this album is extraordinary, with pre-sales quickly approaching one million copies globally,” Lipman tells Variety. Lover marks her first release since signing with Republic. Her final Big Machine LP Reputation sold a million copies in the US in its opening week, and 2.2 million copies since it dropped 15 months ago. 

Swift has already released four singles from Lover, including “Me!,” “You Need to Calm Down,” “The Archer” and the title track.
