    Taylor Swift has signed a long-term record deal with Universal Music, ending a months-long bidding war over the most commercially successful artist in the world.

    Ms Swift is one of few musicians who still sells millions of physical albums in the age of Spotify, making her a rare source of stability for record labels. In the first week of its release her most recent album, Reputation, sold 1.2m copies, while the other top 200 albums sold 863,000 combined.

    From the UK Financial Times

    That's an average of 4,315 each per week.

    Dudes and dames...the point is not that my alien sex slave, Taylor Swift (on my orders, when she transforms back to her native shape, it's amazing what she can do with those four arms and two mouths...it's literally orgasmically otherworldly).sells X amount of records, it's that the other 200 sell, in the entire population of the world, or even if it's just the USA,, only 4,315. I want to know why. It's weird.

    The top 20 albums of all time...http://mentalfloss.com/article/62536/20-best-selling-albums-history

    Shania might sell a bunch of shit, but in regard to the above list, never the Twain shall meet (I am good, ain't I?)

    Edit: Twain does come in the top 100 with a strong #51 with her album The Woman In Me.

    Seems like she is trying to do something that could benefit artist's royalties in today's digital era, not sure but we might need someone on her caliber to do that before distributor's decide the terms of artist royalties on their own. I kept asking Micheal Jackson to do it but he just kept telling me to beat it.

    :deep_facepalm: That implies some popular misconceptions about reptilians... I met one that was nothing but teeth:thumbsdown:

    Absolutely, there are many misconceptions. May I as a point of fact use this 1977 documentary on the diversity of alien races and species that it might inform those with preconceived ideas?

    well lets make a better reply here :hillbilly:
    i just googled Taylor swift ,wanna hear few songs from her
    so i selected top search from yt and brought it here
    so you know HOW CHEAP THESE SONGS ARE being made
    lets get down to it shall we?


    and

    i liked the start of the video with zombie ,then i remembered its Taylor swift song and her singing style
    and what the hell is wrong with those drums,sounds like vanguard drum kits

    and even this


    well,heres the thing : these songs and style are made for teenagers only ,good visuals eye candy for male teenagers
    they can talk about in their break at school

    heres ajoke turns reality
    student a :did you see that Taylor swift video ?
    student b : the one she shown her (insert any part ) ,sure i did,my sister too
    student c :are you guys talking about the most awesome thing in the world today Taylor swift ?
    student a,b,c : yeah yeah join our taylor swift club dude ,and fuck school and all teachers
    (mean while in the corridors ,a taylor swift music playing from one of the closets )

    Well, we get enough 'how to make it in the music industry' threads here. It's worth looking at somebody who has really made it. One of the aspects of her new contract is that she retains ownership of her own masters. Which means two things: she's financing herself without advances from Universal, and she can take her back catalogue with her as and when she decides to move on.

    This compare with each and every upcoming band I've ever known, who spend the first four years hauling their asses out of recoupment to the label, and then get accused of selling out, the moment they actually start earning a few dollars off the music they made.

    It sometimes seems to me that people want more than anything to be hated, given the way they hate other people who actually make it.
