Back on July 24th, Taylor Swift surprised us all with a new album called “Folklore.” It’s been number 1 ever since then.
This week “Folklore” crossed the 1.5 million sales mark. That includes 819,000 CDs and paid downloads, mostly the latter since physical product wasn’t available right away.
“Folklore” now comes in many varieties including deluxe editions, CDs, digital, grilled and poached. But whatever way it comes, Swift has earned a Grammy Album of the Year nomination if not a win. Last year, she was penalized by the record industry and got few nods for “Lover,” her previous album. That was because she spoke out against Big Machine, Scott Borchetta and Scooter Braun. It wasn’t subtle. Let’s hope the new leaders a NARAS get it right this year. “Folklore” should get a a bunch of nods including Album, Song, Record, Female Pop Vocal, Duet, etc.
