Taylor Swift's latest album Lover has already sold approximately 450,000 copies, logging the biggest sales week of 2019, according to Billboard. In addition to setting the record for the year so far, it's also the biggest sales week since Swift's own album Reputation, which sold 1.216 million copies back in 2016. The impressive numbers were reportedly bolstered by strong pre-order sales.
