It didn't take long. Move over Katy Perry and Eminem. "Mine," the first single from Taylor Swift's upcoming album Speak Now, was due for release on August 16, 2010. However, online leaks prompted her label to rush the release 12 days early. Now, within about five hours of official availability Taylor Swift has roared to #1 on the iTunes digital download chart. The sound is classic in the mode of "Love Story," so it shouldn't take long for "Mine" to roll up the pop radio airplay chart as well. Speak Now is arguably the music industry's most eagerly awaited release for the rest of 2010. It is due in stores October 25, 2010 with first week sales expected in the 750,000 and above range. Taylor Swift's last album Fearless was the biggest selling album of 2009. For now, check out a snippet of "Mine" below.
