Queen things: Taylor Swift becomes 1st artist to claim all top 10 spots on Billboard Hot 100

All top 10 songs in the chart are from Taylor's 'Midnights' album, breaking Drake's 2021 record

MANILA, Philippines – It’s her, she’s (not) the problem! Taylor Swift made history as the first artist to take over the entire Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with tracks from her latest album Midnights. 

Billboard reported on Monday, October 31, that the pop superstar has surpassed Drake’s feat, when he claimed nine of the Top 10 songs for a week in September 2021. 

“Anti-Hero” ranked no. 1, followed by other Midnights tracks like “Lavender Haze,” “Maroon,” and “Snow on the Beach.” 

“10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES,” the 32-year-old singer tweeted.

Billboard added that with this achievement, Taylor also passes Drake and The Beatles for the most titles from the top of the Hot 100 chart in a single week. Midnights has also become the first album to have as many as 10 Hot 100 top 10s, besting Drake’s Certified Lover Boy record. 

Midnights, which came out on October 21, was initially released with a 13-track standard version before Taylor surprised fans with a deluxe “3 AM” version that has seven additional tracks bumping the album song count to 20.

Since its release, the album has continuously broken records – Midnights is now the most-streamed album in a single day on Spotify and it has also recorded an equivalent of 1,578,000 sales in the United States, the biggest week for any album in nearly seven years. 

Midnights is Taylor’s 10th studio album, following 2020’s back-to-back releases of folklore and evermore. Since then, Taylor has been rerecording her older music after disclosing in November 2020 that she doesn’t legally own the masters of the records of her previous albums. 

She released Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in April 2021, and Red (Taylor’s Version) in November 2021. Red (Taylor’s Version) featured 30 re-recorded tracks, including six “From The Vault” tracks, some of which included collaboration projects with Phoebe Bridgers and Ed Sheeran, and a 10-minute version of “All Too Well.”

Taylor Swift is among pop music’s biggest names. After her contract with Big Machine expired, she signed with Republic Records. –
