“Swift” is right. In barely five year’s time, pop-country songstress Taylor Swift has eclipsed the 20 million-albums- sold milestone. Swift wrapped up the European leg of her world tour on Wednesday at London’s O2 Arena, and was presented with a commemorative plaque by Big Machine Records prior to the show in honor of her latest achievement.
This accolade comes on the heels of the monumental success of her 2010 release, Speak Now, which sold 1,047,000 units in its first week in the U.S. “I’m absolutely blown away,” Swift tells The Associated Press, “The fact the fans have done that much for me in such a short period of time is just unreal.”
On May 27, the grateful country singer will kick off the American leg of her Speak Now World Tour with two dates in Omaha, Nebraska and will wrap things up in New York City on November 22. For dates and ticket info visit TaylorSwift.com.
