Smooth Sailing, No Streaming for Taylor Swift’s ‘Reputation’


Taylor Swift’s newest album sold more than 717,000 copies in the U.S. in its first day of release, according to Buzzangle Music, putting the pop star on pace to potentially beat out week-one sales for her previous blockbuster.

Ms. Swift on Friday released “Reputation,” her sixth studio effort, for sale only; it wasn’t made available on streaming services, such as Spotify AB or Apple Inc.’s Apple Music. The album may be held from streaming for a week or longer, according to people familiar with the matter.
