Taylor Swift's Reputation tops Billboard 200 for second week

by Maureen Lee Lenker

November 26, 2017 AT 05:54 PM EST

Reputation is giving Taylor Swift a good one.

The singer scored her second straight week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with the album, making her the first woman since Adele in 2015 to stay in the top spot for her album’s first two weeks.

Reputation is also the first album to spend consecutive weeks at No. 1 in four months, the last being Jay-Z’s 4:44. Swift’s sixth studio album represents her fifth record to hit No. 1 in its first week of sales, as well as earning the artist her fourth million-selling album week. Reputation is already the best-selling album of 2017 and continues to secure its place atop that pedestal.

It’s also doing big numbers while remaining largely unavailable on streaming platforms, excepting the four tracks Swift released prior to the official drop date. Many of her Reputation singles were already breaking records before it hit shelves.

No doubt Reputation will continue to break records and bring in big revenue for Swift with her recently announced stadium tour, merchandise, and more.

Interestingly they mention jay-z as the blinds were saying his tour was selling really badly and he's buying seats himself instead of using Groupon but lots of empty space. Album sales are just smoke and mirrors now.

As for Taylor, ready for it is already out of the UK top forty after peaking at 7. 👀

Reputation is a decent album. “I did something bad” and “delicate” are my two favorites this year. I love Witness more because I only skip about 2 songs on there. I skip about 5 or 6 on Reputation.

Do we have in Europe some official album chart?????  God charts are so absurd nowadays,  I can't even find one.

She's thrown out 4 singles so far but none have hit. I predict a return to "country" for her next album with a more stripped back sound ala Miley.

Taylor Swift expands reputation stadium tour 'due to overwhelming demand'

Forget that Grammys snub — Taylor Swift is focused on hitting the road!

The “Delicate” singer on Tuesday added nine dates to her highly anticipated reputation stadium tour. As previously teased, Swift will jump across the pond, performing three dates in the U.K. and Ireland in June. Plus, “due to overwhelming demand,” six additional shows were added in U.S. cities where she previously announced shows, a Facebook post explained. Given the large gaps between dates in the official list below, Swift might have room to add more concerts in the coming months.

Swift also announced that registration has ended for a fan-focused ticket hub through Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan initiative, meaning that hopeful concertgoers who don’t receive a “personalized presale date and time” on Saturday will have to wait to secure their seats until tickets are made available to the general public on Wednesday, Dec. 13, the pop star’s 28th birthday.

The world tour will find Swift performing several tracks from her sixth studio album, reputation, which sits atop the Billboard albums chart for the second week in a row and sold 1.216 million albums in its first week, earning the biggest sales week for an album since Adele dropped 25 in 2015.

Curious about Swift’s new tour aesthetic and musical direction? Look no further than her recent Saturday Night Live appearance, which included a sexy rendition of “…Ready For It?” and an acoustic take of “Call It What You Want.”

Can we be sure those are not fake stadiums they came up with just to make her flop of an era look better?

So I finally decided to give the album a try to see what all the hype is about (or all the flack, if we consider his thread :chuckle:), and it's actually pretty decent. Obviously her music will never be even remotely as good as so many media outlets make it seem to be, nor will it ever live up to its success on the charts - but it's still solid, well-produced pop music if you ask me. Delicate, Don't Blame Me, Getaway Car, Call It What You Want, Dress, Dancing With Hands Tied and some others from this record are all perfect examples for that.

I think when it comes to Taylor I would separate between the persona and the work she puts out...She certainly is absolutely uncharismatic, and I don't doubt for a second she's a back-stabbing witch behind all the fake kindness and victim-playing. But (unfortunately, I guess) she, or probably rather her team, knows how to pick the right producers and make her sound work for the masses (that's also the difference between her and Gaga IMO, with the latter both the persona and music have become unbearable)...

Yes! The album is good. Too bad the only "ballad" in the album, New Year's Day bores me. Her ballads in other albums were better.

She's added extra dates in London and Manchester but I don't see people going on about having tickets on Twitter. I bet they'll have a gaga situation with thousands of tickets left on resale sites.

This is how I feel about most of the so-called pop princesses, especially the ones that came up with M. There were times when things Whitney, Janet, and Mariah said that infuriated me, made my eyes roll, or just made me laugh. But I still enjoyed some or most of their work. I like Taylor's music significantly less, but similar feeling. And the difference with Taylor is that she hasn't said or done anything shady about M!

I streamed it and I actually love it. There's a bit of attitude n an attempt at getting in touch with darkness n her truth  to the songs. Which is risky so props there. I don't feel like she's fully there yet but the songs are nice. Sometimes sounds redundant but the way the record is cut it works as a unit. I like how polished the mix n master is.

Interesting stuff out there about how the industry manipulates sales now (just like they do with most everything else).

Which makes her album and ticket sales quite fishy, considering there's been no major hit from 4 songs so far...

I don't see any major buzz about her tour in pop circles around social media. I wonder how much of this is bought up by re-sellers? I'm sure her team have a very profitable deal with those outlets. I also wonder how much of the current success is because of the previous album/tour cycle? Always seems like a big previous era is good footing for the follow-up. The question is if she doesn't score another major mainstream hit on the next album cycle, will we see these types of numbers again...?

Ready For It looks to have peaked and is losing audience impressions at US radio.

On to the next single? The one featuring Ed Sheeran perhaps???

She is woeful as a performer.  A third rate amateur at a school concert could perform better that that travesty above. Her popularity never ceases to amaze me.

She will be supported by the press as she's one of the few artists probably making decent money. Any criticism of her live performance (and the same goes for others) and the record company will withdraw access to artist. 

The thing is, at these large venues, it's very hard to see and hear whats really going on so people probably won't even realise how shite she is.

Pretty much guaranteed - she needs a big hit and his fanbase will help prop her up. 

Can't believe it's her third single already.

This is her MDNA!

The music world is in a mess when people are duetting with Ed Sheeran to guarantee a hit song. :wacko:  So with Taylor and Ed duetting, we really do have the emergence of "bland and blander"
