Taylor Swift to Set Digital Sales Record

by at . Comments

We still may not be sure about whom Taylor Swift is singing in her latest single, "We Are Never Getting Back Together," but we can be certain of one thing:

It's already a huge hit.

The track is on pace for 600,000 downloads in its opening week, meaning it will challenge Flo Rida (and "Right Round") for the largest debut of all-time and shatter the female record-holder: Lady Gaga with "Born This Way."

The song also broke in to the Billboard Hot 100 at number-72, but its initial seven days of sales, combined with its overwhelming airplay, make it a strong favorite to hold the top spot later this month.

SoundScan will post final scales figures tomorrow, but we don't need to wait until then to declare: the music world belongs to Taylor Swift. All other artists are just living in it.
