How many albums were released in 2017? Scratch that. How many albums were available for purchase in 2017? Countless. How many albums sold over one million physical copies in 2017? Just one. In an industry that’s had to turn to digital streams from non-paying consumers for revenue, because the product simply doesn’t fly off the shelves anymore, Taylor Swift’s sixth album Reputation is the only album to reach this milestone. One million and thirty-five thousand copies, and it took just fifty-two days.
