If anyone has a shot at it, it's her!
Country cutie pie Taylor Swift only just announced that her new album, called Speak Now, is set to be released on October 25th, but it's already being speculated that it could sell over a million units in its first week!
According to Will Botwin, the president/CEO of Red Light Management and ATO Records:
"It feels like if anybody can do it now, she could be the one. She has the sales base and heat from the last few albums. And with all the amazing things she has going on, she is as likely as anybody to reach a million units, especially with the efforts of Big Machine and Universal behind her. She has created mass appeal, she has a bigger profile than anybody in music. I am betting that as we get closer to the release date — with all the deals that Big Machine is probably working on falling into place — she will be so in our face everywhere we turn that she will hit the critical mass that could see a million-unit week. I don't think she can get enough [radio] formats. She may have three-country, some AC depending on the song and maybe top 40. But that's always the dilemma because there are not many slots for nonrhythmic music on top 40 radio in the major markets. I would still bet that she comes under a million units. It's not our album, but I would be the first guy to stand up and cheer if it does happen."
We would, too!
Work it, gurl! You have the potential to sell BIG on this new record!
