Taylor Swift Claims Half Of All Top 40 Songs In America This Week

Taylor Swift Claims Half Of All Top 40 Songs In America This Week

Taylor Swift is the queen of Billboard charts this week–a title he’s used to these days. The singer sits at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and the Hot 100 songs ranking as his new set 1989 (Taylor’s Version) dominating. While his latest album was a blockbuster when it arrived, it is on the Hot 100 where his name appears almost everywhere.

Swift claimed 22 spots on the Hot 100 this week. Surprisingly, all but two of the hits appeared within the tally’s top 40—the region that usually dictates whether a charting track becomes a hit. The singer actually claims half of all available real estate within the area at this time.

Included in that string of 20 top 40 Hot 100 hits are eight top 10s. Leading the charge is his single “Is It Over Now?” That track debuted at No. 1, giving Swift her eleventh lead on America’s most important songs.

Prior to this week, Swift had charted 119 top 40 hits on the Hot 100. Today, that number has increased to 137 placements in the competitive region. He still trails only Drake, who has amassed 199 top 40 hits. Currently, no other artist has reached 100 top 40 hits.

With more music on the way and two more albums to re-record, it’s only a matter of time before Swift raises the bar again. Maybe next year, he could hit 150 top 40 smashes, and from there, it’s impossible to know how big that number will be.

Here is a list of where all of Taylor Swift’s songs rank on the Hot 100 this week.
