Taylor Swift has achieved a major milestone with her new single, “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

According to Billboard, which cites Nielsen Soundscan figures, the song sold 623 thousand downloads for the week ending Sunday. That’s the biggest digital sales week ever for a song released by a female artist.

Only one song ever has sold more downloads in one week: Flo Rida‘s “Right Round,” with 636 thousand downloads during a one-week span in 2009.

The previous record among women was held by Ke$ha‘s “TiK ToK,” which sold 610 thousand downloads during a one-week span in early 2010.

“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was made available to fans on August 13. It enters the Billboard digital songs chart at number one.
