Taylor Swift sets Billboard Hot 100 record, announces 27-date U.S. stadium tour
Taylor Swift scored a 10 out of 10 as she became the first artist in history to claim the top 10 slots of the Billboard Hot 100 chart with tracks from her new record "Midnights."
Billboard reported Monday that Swift surpassed Drake, who had held the previous record with nine of the top 10 songs for a week in September 2021.
"10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES," the pop star tweeted Monday.
The new album came out Oct. 21 with both a 13-track standard release and a deluxe version with another seven bonus tracks. It has had one of the biggest album launches in nearly seven years. Billboard also reported that Swift now ties with Barbra Streisand for the female artist with the most No. 1 albums.
The No. 1 spot belongs to "Anti-Hero," whose lyrics "It's me/hi/I'm the problem/It's me" have quickly become a TikTok trend. The other top 10 songs include "Lavender Haze," "Maroon," "Snow on the Beach," "Midnight Rain," "Bejeweled" and "Question…?"
The numbers are for the week Oct. 21-Oct. 27.
Fresh off one of her biggest album launches of her career, Swift announced a new U.S. stadium tour starting in 2023, with international dates to follow.
The 27-date Eras Tour will kick off on March 18 in Glendale, Arizona, and wrap up with two nights in Los Angeles on Aug. 4-5 at SoFi Stadium. Tour openers will include Paramore, beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridgers, girl in red, MUNA, HAIM, Gayle, Gracie Abrams and OWENN.
"I can't WAIT to see your gorgeous faces out there. It's been a long time coming," Swift said on Instagram, describing the tour as "a journey through the musical eras of my career (past and present!)."
