Taylor Swift scores first UK No. 1 single with "Look What You Made Me Do"
Over eight years since she made her UK chart debut back in 2009, Taylor Swift has finally scored her very first Number 1 single on this week’s Official Singles Chart.
The singer’s huge comeback single Look What You Made Me Do – which has smashed global Spotify and YouTube records - has charged straight in at the top in the UK, accumulating 30,000 downloads and 5.3 million streams in its opening week.
LWYMMD is Taylor’s eighth UK Top 5 single, three of which had previously peaked at Number 2 (Love Story, I Knew You Were Trouble and Shake it Off). View her full Official UK Chart history here.
Dua Lipa’s two week reign at Number 1 with New Rules has come to an end, slipping to 2, while P!nk’s What About Us climbs one spot to Number 3. This marks the first all-female Top 3 on the Official Singles Chart since October 2014, when Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass was at the helm, followed by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s Bang Bang at Number 2 and Taylor’s Shake It Off at Number 3.
Rounding out this week’s Top 5 are Feels by Calvin Harris, Pharrell, Katy Perry and Big Sean at Number 4, and Justin Bieber and BloodPop®’s Friends falls three to this week’s Number 5.
