    After months of hype and speculation, the numbers are in and Taylor Swift is, once again, number one.

    Her latest album, 1989, sold an astonishing 1.287 million copies last week, making it the biggest debut of the year and her third album to sell more than a million copies in its first week, making her the first artist to have three albums go platinum on their debut.

    In just seven days it's become the second highest-selling album of the year, behind only the Frozen soundtrack, which has sold 3.2 million copies this year. 1989 is also the fastest-selling album since Eminem sold 1.3 million copies of The Eminem Show in a single week back in 2002.
