All about that platinum

Title by Meghan TrainorMeghan Trainor’s Title album has now moved a million:

Nearly a year after its release, Meghan Trainor’s album Title has surpassed 1 million copies sold. The singer’s debut full-length set, released Jan. 13, 2015 on Epic Records, sold another 14,000 in the week ending Dec. 31, raising its total sales to 1.007 million, according to Nielsen Music.

Thanks in part to its string of hit singles, Title has remained in the top 30 of the weekly Billboard 200 chart since its debut at No. 1 on the Jan. 31, 2015-dated list. This week (on the chart dated Jan. 16), it rises 22-19 (34,000 equivalent album units; down 13 percent).

That number-one debut displaced — wouldn’t you know it? — Taylor Swift’s 1989. And apart from those four hit singles, Title’s, um, title track, titled “Title,” reached the bottom of the chart purely on the strength of 32,000 downloads.

(If anyone cares, and there’s no reason why you should, I got mine on the 12th of February.)

    It’s being reissued this month with extra tracks? I’d HATE that if I had purchased it initially. As it is, I’ll probably buy it it soon.

    The Deluxe edition from iTunes did have four extra tracks, none of them first-rate (though “Credit” was nice and wry).
