The band’s first new album in six years has topped charts in Canada, Mexico and the U.S. but hasn’t reached a record number of album sales.
Metallia have never before reached a No. 1 spot on Billboard’s albums chart, but their first album, 2013’s I’m Still Here, reached the top 10, with its 12,000-selling album.
Met, who last performed together in 2004, were already one of the biggest-selling bands in U.K. history before the album’s success.
But they have not enjoyed the same success overseas.
Swift, who is married to Taylor’s brother, told Rolling Stone magazine in April that the band is one of her biggest influences but that she has no desire to sing or record any songs with them.
“I’m not going to be their manager,” she said.
“They are going to have a different direction.”
She also said she has not decided what she will sing on her new album.
“When I say I’m going to write some music, I’m not saying that’s a secret.
I want to write a lot of music.
I don’t have a song to write.”
Metallic is still the biggest selling band in the world, having sold more than 10 million albums worldwide since their 1994 debut album, I Want to Hold Your Hand, debuted at No. 3 on the U-Kiss singles chart.
The band has performed in over 1,000 cities around the world and sold more albums in the U, U.P. and U.N. than any other artist.
Taylor Swift is the first woman to sell more than 1 billion albums worldwide and has sold more songs in a single day than the Beatles or Elvis Presley.
Taylor has also been the biggest artist in U:P.
by selling more than two million albums since 2006.
But critics have largely condemned the band’s music.
“The music that we’ve been making, we’ve always been trying to make something new, something different, and they’re pushing us down that path,” said producer Brian Wilson, who collaborated with the band on 2010’s The Scientist.
“We don’t want to be that band, and we don’t really want to have anything to do with them anymore.”
Met also said they will not play live with the rest of the band.
“It’s been really difficult.
It has been really hard,” Wilson said.
He said that it’s been harder because of the group’s international reach and that “people who are fans of their music have never been able to find a place in their lives to play.”
“I’ve never played any shows in the States or Canada or Mexico and they just don’t understand,” he said.
