Taylor Swift has become the first artist in history to have four songs from her new album Midnights chart in the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States.
Swift surpassed Drake, who previously held the record with nine of the top ten songs for a week in September 2021, according to Billboard.
Swift’s new album, Reputation, was released on October 21 as a 13-track standard release as well as a deluxe version with seven bonus tracks.
Midnights, the musician’s tenth studio album, has landed ten of its songs in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, making her history yet again. Swift, 32, has officially become the first artist in history to monopolize the entire top 10, with her single “Anti-Hero” becoming her ninth career No. 1 hit.
“10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES,” Swift wrote on Twitter.

According to Billboard, Swift is now tied with Barbra Streisand for the most number-one albums by a female artist.
Swift’s song Anti-Hero is at the top of the chart, with the lyrics “It’s me/hi/I’m the problem/me” It’s quickly becoming a TikTok trend.
Swift’s new album has set a number of new records.
It had the highest first-week sales of any album this year, nearly doubling the previous record-holder, Harry’s House, Harry Styles’ third solo album.
Indeed, the arrival of Midnights (which was immediately expanded with seven additional tracks) has resulted in Swift locking down the top ten for the chart dated Nov. 5, making history in the process. The No. 1 song is “Anti-Hero,” whose official video was recently released and features cameos from comedian Mike Birbiglia and others.
