Speak Now could sell as many as 800,000-900,000 copies in the week following its release, soaring far above the year's biggest seller to date, Eminem's Recovery, according to Billboard.

Scott Borchetta, president and CEO of Swift's label revealed: "I've been very specific on my point of view from the beginning. We shipped 2 million copies this week and we always felt we could do 700,000 to a million."

Swift's last release, Fearless, debuted at #1 in 2008 selling over 6 million copies, making it the top selling album of 2009.
