Taylor Swift's 'Safe and Sound' Is No.1 on iTunes Songs Chart

Taylor Swift is celebrating this Christmas by scoring another No.1 single. The country music singer has topped the iTunes Songs chart with her latest single 'Safe & Sound', which features The Civil Wars and serves as a soundtrack for the highly-anticipated movie, 'The Hunger Games'. 

Re-tweeting the Civil Wars's tweet which informed people about the No.1 single, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter wrote a thank-you note to her fans. "I'm also counting this as another beautiful Christmas gift.. Thank you for making 'Safe & Sound' the #1 song." 

The star is also celebrating having more than 10 million followers on Twitter. She wrote, "Wait wait wait.. I just noticed my page has 10 million followers now? That's crazy! What a lovely Christmas present!!" 

Beside featuring the ballad song performed by Swift, the soundtrack album for the movie also features tracks by The Decemberists and Arcade Fire. 

The lead star, Jennifer Lawrence, is set to sing 'Rue's Lullaby', a heartwrenching song she performs to her dying friend in the Arena.
