After a period of considerable anticipation, Taylor Swift released her “Red (Taylor’s Version)” at midnight late Thursday/early Friday. The new take on her acclaimed album is thus far faring unsurprisingly well on iTunes.
“Red (Taylor’s Version)” quickly reached #1 on the all-genre US iTunes album sales chart, and it remains in the pinnacle position as of press time at 7:45AM ET Friday morning.
An additional version of the album, one containing a message from Taylor, is #3 on the chart.
The two iterations of “Red” bookend Silk Sonic’s “An Evening With Silk Sonic.” The Bruno Mars-Anderson .Paak collaboration is presently #2 on the all-genre listing.
Jason Aldean’s “MACON” (#4) and Cody Jinks’ “Mercy” (#5) complete the Top 5.
