There’s no stopping Taylor Swift – the country sweetheart is set to land at the top of the U.S. album charts on Wednesday with the biggest first sales week in five years.
Experts predict her new album Speak Now will rocket to the top of the Billboard 200 chart with figures exceeding one million.

If the figures hold up, Swift’s new album will be the first to crack a million in its week of release since rapper Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III, which debuted with just over a million sales in 2008.

And many expect Speak Now to surpass the debut of 50 Cent’s The Massacre, which opened with 1.14 million sales in 2005.
