Taylor Swift makes history, first artist to top 10 Billboard 100 charts

American singer Taylor Swift broke records when she became the first artist to dominate 10 Billboard 100 charts through her latest album Midnights .

The 11-time Grammy award winner became the first artist to achieve the feat in the 64-year history of the Billboard chart.

Quoting Billboard’s official statement, the performer became Spotify’s most streamed artist in the 24 hours following the album’s release earlier this month, now dominating all ten top 10 slots on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.

Swift surpassed the record previously held by rapper Drake who in September 2021 grabbed nine of the Hot 100’s top 10 spots for a week.

Outperforming the Billboard charts, the song Anti-Hero topped the chart as the lead single for the Midnights album.

Nine other slots are also held by the album including the songs Lavender Haze and Karma .

For the record, Midnights is Swift’s tenth album which was released on October 21 following the surprise announcement she made when she won best music video at the Video Music Awards (VMA) last August.

Midnights debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart with the biggest first-week streaming record for an album surpassing British singer Adele’s 2015 album of 25 .
