Two Taylor Swift Singles Debut on This Week’s Hot 100 Chart
Until recently, Taylor Swift fans wanting to hear the singles 'If This Was a Movie' and 'Ours' had to buy the deluxe CD version of the singer's 'Speak Now' album sold exclusively through Target.
As of last Tuesday (Nov. 8), however, the songs have been available for digital download, and Billboard is predicting both will debut in the top 15 on this week's Hot 100 singles chart. "If This Was a Movie' even has a shot at the top 10.
'Movie' and 'Ours' have sold some 150,000 and 130,000 downloads, respectively. A third single, 'Superman,' as well as alternate versions of the 'Speak Now' album cuts 'Mine,' 'Back to December' and 'Haunted,' also made their digital debuts, bringing renewed attention to an album that, since its October 2010 release, has sold more than 1.05 million copies.
The news comes days after Taylor won the prize for Entertainer of the Year at the 2011 CMAs and nearly five years to the day she first hit the Billboard charts with her self-titled debut.
