Taylor Swift's new album has sold 1.287 million copies in its first week.

Nielsen SoundScan announced late Tuesday that "1989" earned the largest sales in a week for an album since Eminem's "The Eminem Show" sold 1.322 million units in 2002.

Swift is the only artist to have three albums push more than 1 million units in its debut week: 2012's "Red" sold 1.208 million and 2010's "Speak Now" sold 1.047 million copies, respectively.

The 24-year-old's fifth album features the smash hit, "Shake It Off." She will launch a world tour next year.
