It’s official: Taylor Swift has set the record for the biggest digital sales week ever for a song by a woman. “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” sold 623,000 in the week ending Aug. 19 — according to Nielsen SoundScan — and it thus debuts at No. 1 on Billboard’s Digital Songs chart.
Not only is it the best week ever for a woman, but the second-largest ever overall. Only Flo Rida‘s “Right Round” has sold more in a week, when it debuted at No. 1 with 636,000 on the Digital Songs chart dated Feb. 28, 2009. (Billboard)
