Taylor Swift's new album Reputation is pacing towards a big opening week of sales in the UK and abroad. The record, which was released last Friday, has already sold just over 65,000 copies in three days, according to data from the Official Charts Company.
This makes her all-but-certain to secure her third chart-topping album when the final rankings are announced on Friday; having previously hit the summit with 2012's Red and 2014's 1989.
Reputation's sales are reportedly double that of its nearest competition - Sam Smith's The Thrill of It All - at the halfway stage, and it could well top 100,000 by the end of the week.
Smith is the defending chart-topper, having sold 97,328 in combined physical, download and streaming-equivalent units last week. If Reputation does top the 100,000 tally by this Friday, it will become only the fourth album of 2017 to do so in a seven-day window.
