Taylor Swift's "Speak Now" is Well Received From Fans

The latest album from Taylor Swift, "Speak Now," has sold over 1 million copies since it was released last week.

"Speak Now" was certified platinum after selling 1,047,000 copies since its worldwide release on Oct. 25, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Nielsen SoundScan said that the 20-year-old's album sales have made it the fastest-selling new record in five years, according to the New York Times.

Keith Caulfield, associate director of charts for Billboard, said, "Even if you put aside the depression of the music market, and look back over the 20 years, this has only happened 16 times, including this week," according to the Los Angeles Times.

Swift said in a Twitter message to her fans on Wednesday, "I... Can't... Believe... This... You guys have absolutely lit up my world. Thank you."

This is yet another major accomplishment for Swift after winning four Grammy Awards earlier this year, according to the Los Angeles Times.
