Stepping into the confessional has proven a lucrative move for Taylor Swift. According to Billboard, the 20-year-old pop-country songbird's latest album, 'Speak Now,' sold more than 1 million copies in its debut week, marking the first million-plus launch since Lil' Wayne's 'Tha Carter III' in June of 2008.

Swift's tally actually eclipsed Wayne's, giving the singer the largest sales week in over five years. She fell just short of topping 50 Cent's 2005 album, 'The Massacre,' which moved 1.14 million units in its debut frame. EW reports, Swift also brings country music its first million-plus sales week since November 1998, when Garth Brooks took 'Double Live' platinum within its first seven days of release.
