Taylor Swift’s ‘Folklore’ sells 1.3 million copies in 24 hours

Final first-week numbers will not be available until a week from Monday, but the album could well be on track for the biggest debut of 2020, a mark held by The Weeknd’s “After Hours” until last week, when it was surpassed by Juice WRLD’s posthumous album “Legends Never Die,” which clocked 517,800 album-equivalent units in its first week — the first album to shift more than 500,000 units in its first week this year, according to Rolling Stone’s album charts. “After Hours” debuted with 460,000 units in March. (To put that in context, the above numbers are U.S. only, while Swift’s numbers provided by the label are global.)
