Taylor to Kanye: Nanny nanny boo boo

The country pop singer has reason to gloat this week. First week sales for Taylor Swift’s album Speak Now hit a million in only its first week. Only 16 albums have achieved this feat since SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991. And, Sound Opinions' Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot add, this is especially significant in an age when digital music is king.

Songs include:

Taylor Swift, "Mine," Speak Now, Big Machine Records, 2010
