Taylor Swift has made history. Again.

The artist, who released her newest album, Midnights, on October 21, now boasts something no one else has ever done in music history. Swift is now the first-ever person to occupy all 10 of the Top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Lana Del Rey appears with her on “Snow on the Beach.”

Her song, “Anti-Hero,” is No. 1. (Read more about that song HERE.) It marks her ninth No. 1 hit song.

Swift overtakes the Canadian artist Drake, who previously held the record with nine of the top 10 slots in September 2021.

The Billboard Hot 100 chart has been in existence since 1964.

All 10 of the songs in the top 10 are from Midnights. Swift now has the most top-10 songs for any woman in the chart’s history with 40, surpassing Madonna, who had 38. Among all artists, she is only behind Drake with 59.

According to Billboard, “The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay, and sales data.”

Billboard adds:
