Taylor Swift first artist ever to occupy all 10 spots in the 100's top 10
Taylor Swift became the first female musician in history to win every spot in the top 10 of the US singles chart.
She passed Drake, who held the previous record of nine top 10 singles in September 2021. Before him, the Beatles achieved eight top 10 singles in 1964. Swift's chart dominance can be attributed to her latest album, Midnights, which became the fastest-selling release of 2022.
The rest of the top 10 includes songs such as Lavender Haze, Maroon, Snow On The Beach, Bejeweled, and Karma. All 13 tracks on Midnights' standard edition charted in the top 15, broken only by Sam Smith's Unholy at 11 and Steve Lacy's Bad Habits at 12.
The seven bonus tracks from the Midnights deluxe "3 am edition" appear between numbers 20 and 45. Swift surprised fans when she announced the new album in the closing moments of the 2022 MTV VMAs in New Jersey in August. She described the album as a story about "13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life" and "a journey through horrors and sweet dreams".
On it, the star returns to the pop palette of his albums before the pandemic, after the domestic indie-folk Evermore and Folklore, both released in 2020. But the muted sounds of those songs are still present, and her late-night stories are painted in more muted tones than hits like Shake It Off and Lover.
It owes part of its success to a clever marketing campaign, which saw the album released in multiple collectible formats - including four vinyl editions that together make up a watch.The Midnights debuted at number one on the US album chart, selling 1.4 million copies - with more than a million on CD and vinyl, an almost unheard-of number in the streaming era.
