Taylor Swift Notches Fifth ‘1989’ Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 Hit With ‘Wildest Dreams’
That 1989 reign just won’t let up.
Taylor Swift is officially five for five with the singles from her massively successful foray into pop, last year’s record breaking, still-chart dominating 1989. (It’s an album so influential, in fact, that a Ryan Adams cover album dedicated to the set just debuted in this week’s Top 10 on the Billboard 200.)
According to the official chart company, Swift’s latest, the dreamy, Lana Del Rey-esque “Wildest Dreams” has lept up from No. 13 to No. 10 in this week’s charts, making it her fifth Billboard Top 10 hit from 1989 and her 19th Hot 100 hit overall.
Rounding out the top tier, Taylor Swift soars into the Hot 100’s top 10, as “Wildest Dreams” jumps 13-10. The song holds at No. 4 on Digital Songs (89,000, up 5 percent); becomes her 10th top 10 on Radio Songs (12-7; 87 million, up 24 percent); and surges 36-24 on Streaming Songs (5.6 million, up 23 percent). Swift snags her fifth Hot 100 top 10 from 1989, following “Shake It Off” (No. 1 for four weeks), “Blank Space” (No. 1, seven weeks), “Style” (No. 6) and “Bad Blood,” featuring Kendrick Lamar (No. 1, one week). 1989 is the first album to generate at least five Hot 100 top 10s since Perry’s Teenage Dream (six, including five No. 1s, tying Michael Jackson’s Bad for the most leaders from one set) in 2010-11. “Dreams” is Swift’s 19th Hot 100 top 10, the sixth-best sum among women in the chart’s 57-year history. Madonna leads all female soloists (and all acts) with 38 Hot 100 top 10s, followed by Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson (27 each), Rihanna (26) and Whitney Houston (23).
Swift’s been breaking records on a near weekly basis with 1989. The question is: Will she continue the bad blood by notching another few Top 10 hits and passing Katy Perry‘s Teenage Dream run? And if so, which songs will do the trick to get her to the top?
Congrats yet again on your latest achievement, Tay!
