Major! Taylor Swift Hits #1 On Hot 100 With ‘Look What You Made Me Do’

Published: Tuesday 5th Sep 2017 by Sam

Taylor Swift is cementing her ‘Reputation’ as an unstoppable Pop force.

For, the singer has just made a major chart statement with new single ‘Look What You Made Me Do.’

Full story below…

As widely forecast, the lead single from Swift’s upcoming LP has leaped to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 after opening at #77 due to early radio support.

Dethroning ‘Despacito’ in the process, the track powered its way to the top spot on the back of (Stateside) digital sales of 353,000, 84.4 million on-demand streams, and a colossal radio audience of 64 million. 

What’s more, peep this summary of its additional slays in context:

  • Highest streams this year, and highest for a female since Adele’s ‘Hello’
  • 2nd highest weekly streams of all-time, bested only by ‘Harlem Shake.’
  • Highest first week sales of 2017.
  • 5th biggest leap to #1 of all-time.

Also, Swift:

  • becomes the 13th woman with at least 5 #1’s.
  • sees all of her #1’s reach pole position in 4 or fewer chart weeks.
  • can boast that the first single of each of her past 3 albums have hit #1.
  • earned the first female #1 of the year.
  • secured the first female solo #1 since Adele’s ‘Hello’ in 2015. [Source]

While there’s a degree of basic that Taylor exudes, there’s nothing basic about her slayage. Quite the contrary.

She’s unlikely to top our list of most captivating performers or celebrities anytime soon. But there’s no denying that the “love/hate” narrative she comes with, plus her unparalleled success, certainly make her intriguing.

Will it all last though?

‘Reputation,’ the album, arrives November 10th – presumably with the answer.

Your thoughts?

      Cardi could still get it if she paces herself….there’s room for growth at retail, streaming and radio for Slaydak Yellow!

    • Jasmine September 5, 2017

      Cardi will go number on the charts that count to urban fans.

      • Caleb September 5, 2017

  4. G7Pat September 5, 2017

    Queen. This song is everywhere!

  5. Jeans September 5, 2017

    Wild Thought was not a #1 song. That’s coming from a fan. I hate that Taylor Swift song but glad it dethroned that Despacito mess.

    • Belladonna September 5, 2017

      It couldn’t beat Despacito No one could until Taylor. Tay Tay is that B*tch!

      • Fresh navi September 5, 2017

        Youre stupid you do realize that Taylor WAITED until the song was losing steam. Had she released the single three weeks ago she would not have topped it.

  6. Metzo September 5, 2017

    Her new single is quite catchy.
    I still think she’s overrated though.

  7. Fancy BISH September 5, 2017

    Queen Tay Tay ??

  8. Lisa September 5, 2017

    This girl can’t sing a lick, No vocal talent at all BUT she is a great song writer. Go girl. Poor Katy Perry……………………………………..

    • Carlitos September 5, 2017

      Don’t pity KP. She still has more number 1s than this snake. She’s not worried. ?

      • Belladonna September 5, 2017

        Taylor is on such another level then Katy that it’s not even funny. Girl bye Taylor is Queen!

      • Fancy BISH September 5, 2017

        Hunnie chile please lol….what you gonna say when Tay Tay puts a promo single in the Top 10 next week? Ready For It has more momentum than Katy’s lead single from Flopness! Max Martin will breathe a sigh of relief next week after Katy flopped him left and right lol ?

  9. Stephy September 5, 2017

    She’s overrated as hell. But I’m here for her success & hype since this year has been completely dead and boring. There’s no real great interesting pop stars left, aside from Beyonka & Rih… The rest are just sooooooo boring stale and most of all mediocre and corny by absolutely default

  10. Belladonna September 5, 2017

    Wow her 84million streams beats Drake,Rihanna,Justin Bieber & Adele that’s amazing! I streamed & downloaded the Moment “Look” came out the video has passed 200million views in a week She been doing this for 5 albums now such a f****** Icon. New Queen of Pop F*uck what you guys think.

    • Fancy BISH September 5, 2017

    • JOHNVIDAL September 5, 2017

      Suicide seems like many many people are happy about it judging by the fact that is her success 🙂 Sadly.

      • JOHNVIDAL September 5, 2017

        Not just Mariah Carey fans for obvious reasons. I wish it would be only that.

  13. Bidge September 5, 2017

  15. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! September 5, 2017

    Wow this is great news. This year has been been so boring and uventful for music. Thanks god, we Jane taylor swift. She’s the artist of our generation.

    She could sell another million In a week, that would be historic .

    • Fancy BISH September 5, 2017

  16. ya September 5, 2017

    people saying music has been boring this year are corny so this pop sh**t is the olny thing yall listen too and wonder why the music industry is in peril all that good rnb soul and other that released probably dnt get play or goes under the radar, but they feed yall this crap and yall only saving grace is rihanna or beyonce or whatever wonder bread they throw at you lol sad sad sad….

    • Belladonna September 5, 2017

      Taylor puts in the work! Her Promo is on point she has her songs in commercials & her video cost as much as a small movie. Most R&B & hip hop never put that much time in to there stuff Neverrrrrr Beyonce tried in 2013 but couldn’t keep it up when the album came out. Taylor is a blockbuster & your favs are indie films. Taylor worked hard to be number1!

      • Electrikblue September 5, 2017

        Someone who clearly doesn’t understand how the industry works. Beyonces tours have grossed more than Taylors. Also Taylor has a way bigger budget than the RnB artists.

      • Caleb September 5, 2017

        Indie films are more about quality while blockbusters are about quantity, hence the dozens of crappy superhero movies that come out every year from major studios. SO I guess your analogy is correct.

  17. meme September 5, 2017

    She played the game right. She used the drama to build anticipation for her 1st single (unlike Katy who waited until single #3). She came out with no warning and debut a major pop video to accompany her single shortly after the single release. Taylors faces is literally all over every billboard and ups track in the nation.

    So while the single is basic, her moves are major. I cant be mad.

  18. Bitchpleeeeaaaasssezzzzzzzz September 5, 2017

    I sear people are only buying this song bcos they just Luuuuuurrrve TayTay to bit and that’s it just like I would do for anything Brandy spits out.????

  19. RoyalKev September 5, 2017

    Only 13 women have 5 #1 hits… Good to know! People in these streets always make it seem as if having that many is such an easy feat!

    • meme September 5, 2017

  20. NickiMinajQueen September 5, 2017

    She’s slaying your faves. Get over it haters

  21. Dev September 5, 2017

    • Electrikblue September 5, 2017
