On Saturday it was claimed by Billboard 200 that 700,000 copies have sold in store and on iTunes in the first 24 hours thanks to hits Look What You Made Me Do and ...Ready For It?

And it's expected that the album will sell as many as 1 million copies in its first week. 

A plus: Taylor Swift's new album Reputation, which went on sale Friday, is a massive hit already

Kudos: On Saturday it was claimed by Billboard 200 that 700,000 copies have sold in store and on iTunes in the first 24 hours thanks to hits Look What You Made Me Do and ...Ready For It?

The number could grow after all retail stores report their sales figures, according to Billboard.

This will also mark her fifth consecutive album to launch at number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

She has incredible track record: 1989 debuted in 2014 with 1.29 million copies sold, Red debuted in 2012 with 1.21 million copies, and Speak Now was released in 2010 to sales of 1.05 million copies.

This comes after Taylor said the album is linear. 

'Reputation, in my mind, is an album that is very linear in its timeline,' Taylor said during a special SiriusXM set on Friday.

'Meaning that it starts out kind of where I first was when I first started making the record. The album ends more with where I am now in my life.' 

The former country star also subtly addressed her on-going battle with Kanye West, which began in 2009 and was rekindled last year.

'You stabbed me in the back': On Friday, Swift, 27, subtly addressed her on-going battle with Kanye West, 40, which began in 2009 and was rekindled last year

The most noticeable lyrics that looked to address the feud were found on the song, This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things.

'It was so nice being friends again. There I was, giving you a second chance. But you stabbed me in the back while shaking my hand,' began the words in question.

These words could have been when the two appeared to be on friendly terms again following Kanye's cruel on-stage snub of Taylor.

'There I was, giving you a second chance': The two appeared appeared to mend things, but in her song, Taylor accused Kanye of stabbing 'her in the back'

The next part is what surely revealed Kanye as the person the lyrics were written about.

'Friends don't try to trick you, get you on the phone and mind-twist you. And so I took an axe to a mended fence.' 

In the summer of last year, Kim Kardashian released recorded video of a phone chat between Kanye and Taylor. 

'Friends don't try to trick you, get you on the phone and mind-twist you': Taylor also addressed the infamous phone call between herself and Kanye that was leaked by Kim Kardashian 

The reality star hoped to settle a he-said-she-said disagreement over a song lyric approval Taylor was alleged to have given Kanye. 

Meanwhile, Taylor also looked to be calling out Kanye's tense relationship with Jay-Z in another lyric from her song. 

'I'm not the only friend you've lost lately. If only you weren't so shady.' 

Aww: Swift thanked Keith Urban for the compliment on her new album
