With songs from her most recent album, Midnights, Taylor Swift received a perfect score of 10, making her the first artist in history to take the Top 10 spots on the US Billboard Hot 100 list.

 

Swift eclipsed Drake, who had previously held the record with nine of the Top 10 singles for a week in September 2021, according to a report from Billboard on Monday.

 

"10 of the Hot 100 out of 10? I'm on my tenth album? The 32-year-old pop artist wrote, "I AM IN SHAMBLES.

 

On October 21, the new album was released in two formats: a conventional 13-track edition and a deluxe version with seven additional songs. One of the largest album debuts in over seven years occurred with this one. According to Billboard, Swift and Barbra Streisand are now tied as the female artist with the most No. 1 albums.

 

Anti-Hero, whose song's lyrics, "It's me/hi/I'm the problem/me," It's have swiftly become a TikTok sensation, is now at the top of the Billboard list. Lavender Haze, Maroon, Snow on the Beach, Midnight Rain, Bejeweled, and Question...? are among the other Top 10 tracks.

 

With Midnights, Swift broke many records. Its first week of sales were the highest of any album this year, almost tripling those of Harry's House, Harry Styles' third solo album, which had held the previous record. Again surpassing Styles' numbers of 53.9m, Midnights also had the greatest first-week streaming of the year with 72.5m.

 

Midnights set a new record for the most album streams in a single day on Spotify on the day it was released.

 

While Madonna still holds the record for the most UK No. 1 albums by a solo female artist with 12 in total, Swift has surpassed her to create a new record for the quickest succession of nine UK No. 1 albums by a female artist. Kylie Minogue is currently in third position on that list after Swift has displaced her.

 

Despite her success in the UK, she won't be able to duplicate her dominance of the Billboard Hot 100 because, as a result of Ed Sheeran's 2017 album,, having 16 of its 17 songs chart in the Top 20, regulations were put in place that limit an album's singles chart eligibility to its three most popular tracks.
