Taylor Swift Ties Whitney Houston’s #1s Record with the Launch of ‘1989 (TV)’ and its Hit Single ‘Is This the End?’ on the Hot 100 Chart

Taylor Swift’s latest album, ‘1989 (TV)’, has broken records with the biggest first-week sales of her career, and just a day after its release, several songs from the album are already setting records on the Hot 100 chart.

Taylor Swift has had a successful week with her album, ‘1989 (TV),’ breaking records on the Billboard 200. Now, she is also seeing several songs from the album break records on the Hot 100 chart.

The latest Billboard Hot 100, published on Monday (November 6), shows that Taylor Swift has taken over a whopping 8 out of the top 10 spots with her hit song ‘Is It Over Now’ leading the way. Let’s take a closer look at the statistics that helped secure its position at the top of the charts.

‘Over Now’ has achieved impressive numbers in its debut, with 32 million streams and 4.7 million audience impressions from radio airplay in the United States. The song has also sold 5,000 digital downloads. This marks the sixth time the artist has debuted at the top spot on the charts, and ‘Over Now’ is the 1,159th song to reach #1 in the Hot 100’s 65-year history, and only the 73rd to do so upon its debut.

Taylor Swift has earned her 11th #1 hit on the Hot 100 chart with the help of producer Jack Antonoff. This new achievement has landed her a higher spot on the list of women with the most #1 hits. She was previously tied with Janet Jackson until ‘Cruel Summer’ reached #1 in 2019. Now, Swift has matched the late Whitney Houston’s record.

Swift has set yet another record by including “Over Now” in her repertoire, making her the first female artist to have three different songs from three different albums top the Hot 100 chart in a single year – an achievement made possible by the success of “Anti-Hero” and “Summer” from her previous albums. Her latest feat brings her cumulative top 10 hits to 49, extending her lead as the woman with the most top 10 hits. Drake, on the other hand, remains the artist with the most top 10 hits among all acts with a total of 76.

On Monday, the latest Billboard Hot 100 rankings were released, and Taylor Swift is dominating with eight of the top ten songs, including her newest hit ‘Is It Over Now.’ This song marks her sixth #1 debut and the 1,159th track to reach the top spot in the chart’s 65-year history. Additionally, the Jack Antonoff-produced tune is her 11th overall chart-topper and moves her up the list of women with the most Hot 100 #1s. With this latest achievement, Swift has tied with the late Whitney Houston, surpassing Janet Jackson, who she had been tied with just a few weeks ago.

Taylor Swift has just made history once again with her song ‘Over Now’. This time, she became the first woman to have three different songs from three separate albums top the Hot 100 in just one year. Her previous hits ‘Anti-Hero’ and ‘Summer’ contributed to this feat. And if that’s not impressive enough, Swift now holds the record for the most top 10 hits among women with a total of 49, surpassing all other female artists. Only Drake has more top 10 hits with a total of 76.
