Just a month ago we reported Beyonce, thanks to the gems found aboard her curated ‘Lion King’ soundtrack effort, ‘The Gift,’ pushed her career total Billboard Hot 100 appearances up from 78 to 81. The accomplishment broke a then-standing tie with Taylor Swift for the second-most placements on the tally (only Nicki Minaj has more).
Now, courtesy of the tunes found aboard her latest chart-topping album, ‘Lover’ (released August 23), Swift has re-assumed her position behind Minaj. Billboard reports:
“While three songs [from Swift’s ‘Lover’ album] continue their chart runs and one re-enters, 14 debut, pushing her total to 95 career entries.”
Congratulations are due to Taylor! While she ranks second to the Harajuku Barbie’s impressive 104 entries, her 95 career placements pencil her in history books as the female vocalist with the most appearances on the tally.
