While there’s little doubt Taylor Swift’s new album “Lover” is going to be huge, it’s not even released yet and it’s already selling like hotcakes. A rep for Republic Records tells “Variety” “Lover,” which officially drops Friday, has already moved close to one-million copies globally thanks to pre-sale purchases.
Of course Taylor is no stranger to selling over a million records in just a week. Her last album “Reputation” sold 1.238 million in its debut week, going on to sell 2.2 million in total, while her previous record, “1989” sold 1.2 million in its first week.
Harry Styles is on the cover of September’s “Rolling Stone,” hitting newsstands September 3rd, and apparently it’s not just because he likes showing off his shirtless physique. A source tells “Us Weekly” that he’s actually getting ready to release a new album.
According to the insider, Harry is planning to drop his sophomore album “later this summer/early fall,” and was actually seen shooting two music videos earlier this month, one in Cancun, and the other in Saint Abbs, Scotland.
So far there’s no official confirmation of a new album, but if it does come out, it will be the follow up to his self-titled debut, which was released in May 2017.
