Hot 100 & Billboard 200 Chart Records She’s Broken – Billboard

Taylor Swift has long been a powerhouse on Billboard’s charts, from her 2006 debut single “Tim McGraw” through her latest re-recorded album, 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Swift continues her impressive chart-topping history on the latest, Nov. 11, 2023-dated charts, as 1989 (Taylor’s Version) becomes her 13th No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, tying Drake for the third-most of all time, after the Beatles (19) and Jay-Z (14).

The album debuts with 1.653 million equivalent album units earned in its opening week, according to Luminate. That’s not only the largest one-week total of 2023, but it’s the biggest week since for any album since the opening week of Adele’s 25 on Nov. 15, 2015 (3.482 million). Of those 1.653 million units, 1.359 million were in traditional album sales, becoming Swift’s biggest one-week total ever. That sales sum is also the sixth-largest since Luminate began tracking music sales after 1991, after the opening weeks of Adele’s 25 (3.378 million), *NSYNC’s No Strings Attached (2.416 million, in 2000), *NSYNC’s Celebrity (1.878 million, 2001), Eminem’s The Marshall Mathers LP (1.76 million, 2000), Backstreet Boys’ Black & Blue (1.591 million, 2000).

On the Billboard Hot 100, Swift charts all 21 songs from 1989 (Taylor’s Version), along with her recent No. 1 “Cruel Summer.” “Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version) (From the Vault)” succeeds “Cruel Summer” at No. 1, becoming her 11th leader, tying Whitney Houston for the eighth-most of all time. Swift was already the only woman to replace herself at No. 1 on the Hot 100 (thanks to “Blank Space” supplanting “Shake It Off” in 2014), and now she’s the first woman to replace herself at No. 1 twice.

As Swift continues to achieve more history, here’s a look at all the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 chart records that she’s broken in her career, all through the charts dated Nov. 11, 2023.

It’s worth noting that, as streaming has become more prominent in recent years, certain acts have been able to achieve impressive Hot 100 feats after releasing high-profile albums. The model contrasts with prior decades, when acts generally promoted one single at a time in the physical-only marketplace and on radio. That shift in consumption helps explain why artists have been able to increase their total number of career entries and top 10s over short spans in recent years.
