Taylor Swift Is Raking In Album Sales Since She Endorsed Democrats

Recommended Posts

In the hours and now days since her post, four of Swift’s albums have climbed back up the iTunes album sales charts. Reputation, which was released 11 months ago, was ranked No. 32 on Saturday, moved up to No. 25 the day of her Instagram post and hit No. 14 by Tuesday afternoon, as reported by a site that maintains records of album sales on iTunes. As W magazine noted, her album 1989 re-entered the top 100 on Monday and hit No. 74 by Tuesday. Another chart tracker, Pop Vortex, listed Wednesday that two more of her albums are currently on iTunes’ top 200: 2012’s Red was at No. 129 and 2008’s Fearless was at No. 130 as of press time.

According to data provided to Mic from Nielsen, audio streams of Swift’s music hit 4.82 million Sunday and 5.55 million Monday. However, a Nielsen spokesperson said in an email that historically, Sunday is the day of the week with the lowest streaming activity. The highest streaming total observed last week was Friday, which had 5.9 million streams.

While a less official measure, the buzz online indicates fans have been listening to Swift’s music either in support of this move or because their love for it was renewed.

Her album sales aren’t the only impressive number Swift has pulled in since her post. Hours after she uploaded, Vote.org reported a huge surge in registrations around the country. In Tennessee, the same amount of people registered between Sunday and noon Tuesday as between May and September. More than 166,000 people across the country submitted new registrations in that time frame, 42% of whom were between the ages of 18 and 24, the site told the New York Times.

And the candidates are seeing a direct boost, too.

“Our campaign has many new friends, including a handful of new donors,” Marianna Weaver, a spokesperson for Cooper’s campaign, said in an email. “We are ecstatic that she inspired so many new registrations.”


Yes Queen Slay!! Taylor always wins. :tayluciferbye:
