SHE'S barely uttered a word in public for 18 months, but Taylor Swift is still causing a ruckus on the charts.

Superstar Taylor Swift showed up to buy her new album "Reputation" at the White Bridge Road location.

But the figure was less than half the monster sales for the debut of Adele's "25" album, which surpassed 2.43 million copies in the first four days of release in November 2015 and smashed a 15-year-old USA record set by boy band NSync in 2000. The album, released on November 10, has sold 1.05m copies in its first four days on sale, according to Nielsen Music figures reported by Billboard.

Sheeran's record was released in March and has sold 919,000 copies to date.

Watch Taylor Swift perform two tracks from 'Reputation' on 'Saturday Night Live'
Reputation , Swift's first studio album in three years, marks another transformation in image for the country-turned-pop star. Can we please make her the president of the entire network? "I am HERE for #reputation era @ taylorswift13! ".

Swift's 1.05 million United States sales of "Reputation" came despite the singer keeping the album from streaming services and gave her the best-selling album of 2017.

This mega-success comes as a bit of a shock after Swift's first singles from Reputation were panned by critics.

Additionally, at the beginning of the sexy track, Miz Swift sings, "there is an indentation/in the shape of you", possibly referencing Sheeran's smash hit.

Swift stopped to take photos with fans and sign copies of her new album, which dropped last Friday and has since garnered positive reviews. Follow her on Instagram! And it's on the house.
