Taylor Swift’s Folklore becomes first album of 2020 to sell a million copies

US singer Taylor Swift’s surprise album Folklore has become the first album of the year to sell more than a million copies in the US.

It is also rumoured to be nominated for a series of Grammys after it received glowing reviews since its release in August and is the ninth album of Swift’s to sell a million copies.
