    Nielsen Music has released preliminary estimates indicating that Taylor Swift's Reputation impressively logged over 700,000 units sold in just its first day of availability.

    No one doubted the singer-songwriter's latest effort would top the charts, but Swift seems ready to shake off any potential bad blood surrounding last week's revelation of an anti-defamation lawsuit against a music blogger. The album's huge early figures leave the music industry waiting with bated breath, ready for it to set a number of records for 2017 sales and more.

    Swift and her team released the album without allowing streaming on any formats, a decision undoubtedly made to help boost first week sales, though such high initial estimates probably exceed even their wildest dreams. For context, the country turned pop-star's previous album, 2014's 1989, sold nearly 1.29 million in its first week on it's way to over 10 million total sales to date.

    Reputation sure seems on track to match or beat those impressive statistics, and that is before all the sales outlets have even reported in; Nielsen Music's 700,000 number comes before all of their retailers submitted daily sales reports, and taking into consideration a 2018 stadium tour announcement that includes a concert ticket and album purchase bundle, the totals will undoubtedly continue to swell before we are fully out of the woods.

    The album seems certain to become Swift's fifth straight chart-topper, following 2008's Fearless, 2010's Speak Now, 2012's Red, and 2014's 1989. In comparison to other 2017 releases, Reputation needs only slightly more than 200,000 more sales in its first week to surpass Ed Sheeran's ÷ (Divide), which currently stands as the year's best-selling LP with 909,000 units sold in total since its release on March 3.

    At the magic one million number, Reputation could become Swift's fourth album with first week sales that reached seven digits, and she already holds the record for that statistic as well, being the only individual or group to do so three times.

    Tickets for Swift's 2018 tour will be available beginning December 13th of this year. Fans will need to verify their identity, and can increase their chances of nabbing tickets by, of course, buying a copy of Reputation. It's safe to say, when it comes to selling music, thanks to Taylor Swift, everything has changed.
