Taylor Swift Stays Atop Billboard Charts
Just as the year closes out on the charts, Taylor Swift and her smashing third studio release manage to hold No.1 spots on all stilts. Swift's first-week-million-dollar-breaker 'Speak Now' sold 77,000 copies over this past week, according to Nielsen SoundScan -- rightfully staying atop not only the country album chart, but also the multi-genre Billboard 200 chart for its fifth consecutive week.
What's more is the album's digital single, 'Back to December,' knocked the Band Perry's ballad 'If I Die Young' out of the No. 1 spot on the digital country sales chart.
But there's no doubt Swift sure has the fanbase to match those numbers, as the singer just won Favorite Country Artist at last night's People's Choice Awards.
“I want to thank you so much for being people that I count on and I just appreciate this love so much because I love you too," Swift said upon accepting her award, based solely on fans' votes. "Thank you for everything.”
After rounding out the year with a spot in the Top 20 of Forbes Hollywood’s Highest Earners of 2010, we can't wait to see what's in store for Swift this year.
