Taylor Swift’s latest album, “Folklore,” has sold over 2 million copies worldwide in one week, setting records in the process.

Swift’s eighth studio album also generated more than 500 million streams across various platforms throughout its debut week. Republic Records, Swift’s music label, announced earlier this week that the album sold over 1.3 million copies in its first 24 hours alone.

“Folklore” has already broken records in the United States and worldwide. In its first day on Spotify, the album accumulated 80.6 million streams, setting a new benchmark on the platform for first-day streams by a female artist. Swift also holds the record for the female artist with the most albums debuting above 500,000 sales in the U.S., with all but her first album surpassing the mark. “Folklore” did well on Apple Music, too, breaking the 24-hour record for most-streamed pop album with over 35 million streams on its first day.

Marilyn Manson Announces Album “We Are Chaos’ And Debuts Video

Marilyn Manson has announced his brand new album ‘We Are Chaos’ and released the video for the title track. On Twitter Manson confirmed that his new LP — his eleventh studio album — will be released on September 11.

In a statement, Manson said that when he listens to ‘We Are Chaos’ now, “it seems like just yesterday or as if the world repeated itself, as it always does, making the title track and the stories seem as if we wrote them today. This was recorded to its completion without anyone hearing it until it was finished. There is most definitely a side A and side B in the traditional sense. But just like an LP, it is a flat circle and it’s up to the listener to put the last piece of the puzzle into the picture of songs.”

Just days after “The Kissing Booth 2” debuted on Netflix, the streaming service has announced a third installment coming in 2021, which has already been filmed.

The original “Kissing Booth,” directed by Vince Marcello and released in May 2018, told the story of high school student Elle Evans (Joey King), who falls in love with her best friend’s older brother, Noah Flynn, played by Jacob Elordi. The sequel sees their long-distance relationship tested as Noah heads off to college and Elle navigates the challenges of her senior year in high school.

Joey King, Joel Courtney, Taylor Zakhar Perez, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and Meganne Young announce that they are reprising their roles in the third film.

King added that filming both movies at the same time “was the hardest secret to keep ever.”

Netflix released a teaser trailer for part three which you can view at the link: here.
