NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Swift’s “reputation” is in good standing: the album has sold 1.22 million units in its first week.

Nielsen Music and Billboard report Monday that the album is Swift’s fourth project to sell more than a million copies in a week. Swift became the first artist in history to have three albums sell more than a million units in their debut week when “1989” sold 1.29 million copies in 2014. Her albums “Red” and “Speak Now” each sold 1.21 and 1.05 million copies when they released in 2012 and 2010, respectively.

“Reputation,” released on Nov. 10, has sold more traditional albums than any other release this year. Ed Sheeran and Kendrick Lamar’s recent albums are behind Swift, but have not sold a million units traditionally.

“Reputation” is not available on streaming services.
