Taylor Swift’s new album, “1989,” became the first album since 2002 to sell more than 1 million copies in its first week.
Swift sold 1.287 million copies of the album in its initial week.
The last album to accomplish the feat was Eminem’s “The Eminem Show,” Nielsen SoundScan announced.
Swift is the only artist to have three albums push more than 1 million units in its debut week: 2012's "Red" sold 1.208 million and 2010's "Speak Now" sold 1.047 million copies, respectively.
Her album’s success comes on the heels of her controversy with music streaming service Spotfiy.
Swift reluctantly allowed her 2012 album “Red” on the service, but Monday pulled her music altogether.
"We love Taylor Swift, and our more than 40 million users love her even more – nearly 16 million of them have played her songs in the last 30 days, and she’s on over 19 million playlists," Spotify said in a statement on their website. "We hope she’ll change her mind and join us in building a new music economy that works for everyone."
Swift is an advocate against music piracy and a supporter of the future of the music industry.
In Swift's op-ed in the Wall Street Journal she wrote, "piracy, file sharing and streaming have shrunk the numbers of paid album sales drastically." She continued saying she hopes artists "don't underestimate themselves or undervalue their art."
Spotify says it pays 70 percent of its revenue to music labels and revealed last year that artists receive an average of less than a penny per song play.
