Flo Rida's 2009 hit "Right Round," is the current song holding the record for the most downloads in its first week.
The site also noted on Aug. 21 that "Back Together" has already sold nearly twice as much as Swift's previous best selling week hit "Love Story," which sold 360,000 back in 2008. The new song is off of her upcoming album "Red," coming out on Oct. 22.
The track was released on Aug. 13 and Swift admitted to taking a dig at an ex-boyfriend of hers in the song, reassuring the guy and all her fans listening that her breakups are final.
"This guy walks in who is a friend of my ex's and starts talking about how he's heard we're going to get back together. And that was not the case," Swift told "Good Morning America." "So I start telling them the story: break up, get back together, break up, get back together - just, ugh, the worst! And I picked up the guitar and [songwriting partner Max Martin] said, 'This is what we're writing.' "
Lyrics from the new song include, "I say, I hate you, we break up, you call me, I love you/ Oh we called it off again last night/ but oh this time I'm telling you...we are never ever ever ever getting back together...like ever."
Swift is currently romantically linked to Connor Kennedy, grandson of Robert F. Kennedy. The two have been seen numerous times this summer at the Kennedy family's Cape Cod estate.
