Taylor Swift continued to steamroll the talk show circuit with a leggy performance of her new song “Welcome to New York,” on the “Late Show With David Letterman.” The catchy pop tune is quickly becoming a Big Apple anthem.

On Monday (Oct. 27), Swift held her New York City Secret Session on a Manhattan rooftop, playing songs for a select audience of 89 fans.

She explained earlier in the show the secrets behind her album listening parties and how she hand-picks the fans who will attend.

Her latest album, 1989 was released Monday and is one track to sell a million copies in the first week, according to Billboard.

The last time an album sold so quickly was two years ago, when Swift’s Red album also sold a million copies in its first week out. The album debuted at No. 1 on the pop charts and 1989 is destined to do the same.

In addition to singing, Swift talked about her secret session listening parties, how she became best friends with Lena Dunham, who stars on the HBO series “Girls,” and why she hasn’t written a snarky song lately about a past boyfriend.
