Taylor Swift knows the top of the charts all too well.
For, she has managed to boot Adele from the top of the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to her song, ‘All Too Well.’
More details below…
‘All Too Well’ blasts to the #1 position strong sales and streams. During the tracking week it earned 54.4 million U.S. streams and 57,800 downloads, according to MRC Data. It was enough to best Adele’s ‘Easy On Me,’ which ruled for the last four weeks.
With her launch atop the charts, Swift breaks several records. This includes becoming her first artist to debut atop the Billboard 200 and Hot 100 three times. She swooped in the top spot with her ‘Folklore’ album and her song ‘Cardigan’ on the August 8, 2020 chart. She also managed the same feat with her ‘Evermore’ album and its single ‘Willow,’ when both made their debut on the December 26, 2020 chart.
Additionally, the song becomes the longest Hot 100 #1. With ‘All Too Well’ being over 10-minutes, the song can now be considered the longest # 1 by run time in the Hot 100’s history, passing Don McLean’s ‘American Pie (Parts I & II),’ at 8 minutes, 37 seconds.
Moreover, Swift becomes the first act to send a former Hot 100 hit to #1 since Elton John did so with ‘Candle In The Wind.’
‘All Too Well’ earns Swift her 30th Hot 100 top 10 hit, becoming only the sixth artist to reach this milestone.
