Chart Check: Taylor Swift Breaks Beyonce Record For Most Career Hot 100 Appearances Among Female Vocalists

Published: Wednesday 4th Sep 2019 by Rashad

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.

Curious to see who joins Ms. Swift on the charts this week?  Look below for our latest installment of ‘TGJ Chart Check.’

    Such sad times when mediocre is rewarded where’s real talent is continuously overlooked. Aside music to politics, everyday topics it’s no wonder why society among the world is in the state it’s in. Common sense is rarer than the days and love is no where in sight just mere lust, injustice, hate, ignorance ect that

    • HavanaONana September 5, 2019

      Different people has different tastes. Beyonce is a great singer and Taylor is a great songwriter and performer

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? September 5, 2019

        A songwriter is not an artist! Diane Warren is a great songwriter but most people would say who is that because they don’t buy cds because of the writer. Taylor is basic. Her hype is inflated. With All the numerous commercials, in store huge Target promo, Apple Promo, Spotify Promo, etc her album should be selling like Michael Jackson’s Thriller or Dangerous albums BUT it’s not. Population has almost tripled since Thriller yet most people ain’t falling for the inflated hype so they have to factor in “streams” to count as “sales” when that is like pennies on the dollar.

      Taylor has catchier music than bey you will accept and continue to accept. That’s why rihanna overtook her. Stop putting out duds Bey! Be mad at her!

    You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.

    Who cares? Every major artist should get titles. Beyonce will always be the lead singer of the Best Selling R&B Group of all time and Billboard Award’s Best Artist of the Decade for 2000-2010, blah, blah, blah.

    • Detruth September 5, 2019

      Spice girls is actually the best selling girl group of all time and TLC is the best selling female group from the US. DC is right behind TLC no shade all facts. Check the numbers and not just websites that kiss Beyonce A**.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? September 5, 2019

        I said the “Best Selling R&B Group of all time“. Like, I said all major artists have titles. Spice Girls are the Best Selling Female Group From the UK and the Andrews Sisters are the Best Selling Female POP Group, etc but the Best Selling Female R&B Group is DC. TLC is the Best Selling R&B and Hip-Hop Group of all time. Like I said, all major artists have titles.

    • Jamon_84 September 5, 2019

      That sounds dumb as hell. TLC and DC are in the same category. TLC is outsold DC.

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? September 5, 2019

        So TLC don’t get a title? Don’t be petty. Of course TLC has titles. Even if they are outsold they still hold the title of Former Best blah blah blah

      • Jamon_84 September 5, 2019

        TLC and DC is an R&B group!! TLC has the title of best selling female R&B group!

    • Jasmine KoolAid September 5, 2019

      Are i aware Taylor and Adele outsell beyonce?

      Even beyonce is aware of that
      But beyonce is also successful her self I don’t think it bothers her at all she is a legend already

  6. Clarkson September 5, 2019

    Normani is no where to be found after giving an over the top performance at the vma’s. Motivation fell from number 33 to number 66, isnt that sad?

    • HavanaONana September 5, 2019

      Omg i can’t believe it, Normani fans should support her

      That’s not good sign, she’s in trouble

    • PinotNoir September 5, 2019

      Prolly the first Max Martin penned song that undersells. Ariana prolly injected the generic elements into the writing. My take? No message. Kelly Rowland’s Stole type of messagy song could have worked better vs. the yawntastic black girl dancing like she’s being tasered routine. Sultry in an era of musical s** tapes? Futile.

  7. Clarkson September 5, 2019

    Yall are still talking about the lion king sound track that sold 900 copies in the UK?

    beyonce is so over rated. She has the worst ear in the business. For her to think rubbish songs like mood 4 ever, brown skin girl, and spirit are good songs.

    Beyonce needs her father, but she is so loyal to her mother so she wouldn’t rehire her father as her manager.

    • Oh na na September 13, 2019

      I agree only once in awhile she can pick a hot song. And maybe others around her chose it ?‍♀️

  8. HavanaONana September 5, 2019

    Queen Taylor and Beyonce are both winner here

    Beyonce did her time
    Now it’s Taylor winning

    Lets be happy for this two strong women winning in their own way

  9. biancacook September 5, 2019

    ppl kill me. just because u dont particularly like an artist does not discredit their achievements. whether its cardi, taylor, nicki bey or rih they have a following and a fanbase. always talking about who doesn’t deserve awards or recognition. if ppl are buying their music and the are giving the public what they want then they very much deserve everything they get.

  10. Caleb September 5, 2019

    It seems like now that entire albums debut on the singles chart these records are all broken very easily.

  11. YES! September 5, 2019

    Congrats to Taylor!

  12. He’ll NEVA Be Me September 5, 2019

    Records are meant to be broken. Get to work!
