Taylor Swift's 'Reputation' sales soar, but Adele keeps her crown

So basically, when it comes to burning up the Billboard album charts, Taylor Swift is mainly in competition with herself.

While promoting her new album Reputation, Taylor Swift's style has been more relatable than ever, and she proved our point once more when she stepped out on Monday night in N.Y.C. It's the first album to sell a million copies in a tracking week in almost two years, since Adele's 25 sold 1.16 million copies in the frame ending December 25, 2015 (the album's fifth week on sale).

The songstress was spotted leaving her Reputation album release after-party in Manhattan's Tribeca neighborhood wearing a casual going-out outfit that looks more like something you'd wear to your best friend's house. Other big debuts include 2014's "1989", 2012's "Red", and 2010's "Speak Now".

Swift reportedly kept "Reputation" off streaming services like Apple Music and Spotify for the first week of release. Reputation is also already the best-selling album of the year.

Swift this week announced the first USA dates of what is expected to be a world tour to promote the album.
