Taylor Swift Sets Records For Most Simultaneous Hot 100 Entries, Most Top 40 Hits Among Women

Published: Saturday 7th Sep 2019 by Rashad

Those who have followed the trajectory of Taylor Swift‘s career are well aware of the fan anxiety that preceded the release of her seventh studio album, ‘Lover’ (August 23).  In addition to the pressures of following three LPs that sold over 1 million copies their first weeks respectively, ‘Lover’ is also Swift’s first studio effort since 2010’s ‘Speak Now’ not to have one of its singles top the Hot 100 ahead of its parent project’s premiere.

Yet, the absence of a #1 single certainly hasn’t stopped ‘Lover’ from becoming a historic beast in its own right, namely on the Hot 100.

First, thanks to the album’s lead single, ‘Me!,’ vaulting from #100-#2 back in May, the Grammy winner entered history books for the largest one week position jump on the tally (click here to read more).  Next, before ‘Lover’ even touched shelves she tied Madonna‘s longstanding record for most top 20 hits among females (click here to read more).  Now, with all 18 of the project’s tracks impacting the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously, she’s penciling her name on record pages for a number of other unprecedented achievements.

More inside:

With all 18 songs from ‘Lover’ impacting the Hot 100 this week Swift became the first and only female artist to have that many placements on the chart concurrently.  Billboard reports:

“While three songs continue their chart runs and one re-enters, 14 debut, pushing her total to 95 career entries.

 With her haul, Swift rewrites the record for the most simultaneous charted Hot 100 titles among women, as her 18 songs pass the 14 that Billie Eilish tallied on April 13, the week that Eilish’s album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? bowed atop the Billboard 200. Among all acts, Drake has charted the most Hot 100 hits in a single week: 27, on July 14, 2018, when his album Scorpion started at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.”

Those 95 career entries mentioned above means she stands as the female vocalist with the most appearances in Hot 100 history (as we reported here).  Among all female acts, only rapper Nicki Minaj – with her 104 career entries – has more.  Further, among  all acts, Taylor ties Chris Brown for eighth place.

Finally, as if that’s not enough, this week Swift extended her reign as the Queen of Top 40.  As 7 of the 18 placements from the album entered the Hot 100’s top 40, she now boasts a career total of 63 entries in that domain.  The leader among women, she’s trailed by Minaj’s 54 entries and Rihanna‘s 50.  Among all artists, Drake leads with a career total of 99 top 40 placements.

    Who would have thought that in 2019 Taylor will still be breaking records and Katy Perry’s career will be in the toilet.

    Taylor will eventually get a number 1 from this album, mark my words.

    • HavanaONana September 7, 2019

      I have the same feeling

      I think You Need To Come Down can still hit number 1, it is possible

      Katy Perry’s career is not in the toilet. She is NOT a volunteer on American idol. She gets a very hefty check and she has white privilege. If white privilege did not exist both of these overexposed basic ass white b|itches would be nobodies! Women of color have to work 10 times as hard and be quadruple talented just to get a fraction of their success. Taylor and Katy get by without being pretty, vocalists, or dancers. Bey has to look pretty, sing, and dance. Rihanna has to look pretty, be sexxy, and be a fashion style icon.

    Just like modern Politics this is indeed a historical achievement in terms of how far public opinion in the mediocre media savvy, PR machine hyped figures has risen. I hope these records are broken on day by someone more talented.

    • Keith September 8, 2019

      @Haterz Gon’ Hate: I tend to agree with this position. It would be nice to see someone more talented, regardless of race, achieve or surpass these accomplishments. But, the beautiful thing is that no one forces me to listen to that “music”, LMAO….

    • REALTALK September 8, 2019

      It is sickening and frightening that Taylor Swift is at the top of the music industry. No hate but it says an awful lot about the world we live in today. Trump is the president and Swift is a superstar, SMFH!!!!!!!!
