    Taylor Swift's new album 1989 landed with anything but a thud.

    The album sold a way impressive 1.287 million copies its first week in stores, which made for the highest first week sales since 2002! So 12 years. It was also obviously the biggest sales week for an album in 2014.

    Eminem's The Eminem Show sold 1.32 million its first week in stores all the way back in 2002.

    Congrats, T. Swizzle.

    The singer celebrated the feat with a Kendrick Lamar rap —well, a Kendrick Lamar lip-synch— which you can watch below.

    It's pretty adorbs.

    Is there a T. Swizzle and K. Lamar duet in their future?

    Perhaps.

    Industry experts predicted 1989 would sell 650k first week. You went and bought 1.287 million albums. AND IT'S GOT ME LIKE:
