Taylor Swift Sets Billboard Radio Songs Chart Record

Taylor Swift has once again made history, becoming the first artist to top Billboard’s Radio Songs chart in the 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.

The Grammy winning star achieved her seventh Radio Songs Chart Number One with "Anti-Hero" and now ties with Maroon 5, Katy Perry and Usher for the fourth-most Number Ones on the charts. Rihanna still holds the top spot with 13 Number Ones, followed by Mariah Carey with 11 and Bruno Mars with 9.

"Anti-Hero" broke the global and US records for the biggest opening-day streams for a song in Spotify history. It reached the top 10 of the official charts in 38 territories, peaking at number one in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Latvia, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, and the United Kingdom, as well as the United States, where it marked Swift's ninth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 and made her the only soloist ever to debut five songs atop the chart. Ultimately, "Anti-Hero" topped the Billboard Global 200 as well. 

And it's not the only record Swift broke last week during her Midnights campaign. It's been confirmed that the talented singer-songwriter also sold 6 million album equivalent units worldwide in just eight weeks, making her the first artist to have five albums each sell over 1 million units in their week of release. Midnights is also the first album to sell over 1 million physical copies since 2015, and to sell better on vinyl than CD since the 1980s.

Meanwhile, it was revealed last week that another group of Swifties are suing Ticketmaster for their poor handling of the ticket sales for her upcoming Eras tour. According to the filing, "Ticketmaster intentionally and purposefully misled millions of fans into believing it would prevent bots and scalpers from participating in the pre-sales".
