Ed Sheeran responds to speculation that Taylor Swift's 'Dress' is about him

A new United States opening week U.S. sales projection has been released for Taylor Swift's "reputation".

Swift's 1.05 million United States sales of Reputation came despite the singer keeping the album from streaming services and gave her the best-selling album of 2017.

Whether it reaches that figure, it still establishes a record for the 27-year-old singer and songwriter, making it her fourth album in a row to exceed first-week sales of 1 million copies. It's not quite what Adele accomplished with the release of 25 in 2015, which sold 1.16 copies in one week, but pretty close.

Reputation, her first studio album in three years, marked another transformation for Swift with songs marked by vengeance that take aim at the media and some of her haters.

Her previous albums to top that mark were "1989", which sold 1.29 million in 2014, "Red" (1.21 million in 2012) and "Speak Now" (1.05 million in 2010).

This mega-success comes as a bit of a shock after Swift's first singles from Reputation were panned by critics. Swift went on to meet each and every fan, speaking with them and taking pictures. Her Instagram account now features two lines of images showing positive comments from reviewers all written in that recognizable Reputation gothic print. And it's on the house.
