This week, Taylor took her spot at #1 on the Billboard Artist 100 list. She is only the second female artist to claim this spot, so congratulations Taylor!
Taylor Swift takes over as the top artist in the U.S., as she vaults to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100, marking her first week atop the chart. She’d re-entered the list at No. 69 last week as buzz built for her new Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 “Shake It Off.”
The Artist 100 provides the first weekly ranking dedicated to measuring artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Billboard 200 albums chart and the Social 50. The Artist 100 blends data measuring album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction to provide a weekly multi-dimensional ranking of artist popularity.
Swift soars to No. 1 on the Artist 100 with a gigantic 807 percent surge in overall points, and with digital song sales the biggest driver (67 percent) of her total weekly activity. Leading the way: 544,000 downloads sold for “Shake” in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, marking the biggest weekly total for a song this year. In addition to the Hot 100, the track also launches at No. 1 on the Digital Songs chart.
It has been announced that Taylor’s first single “Shake It Off” from the upcoming album “1989″ has sold 544,000 copies in its first week, and debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100! This marks the biggest sales week of 2014 and the fourth-largest debut week ever. You can read the full article below. Congratulations, Taylor!
Swift’s new single blasts in at No. 1, thanks to hefty sales, streaming and airplay. Plus, Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ vaults 39-2 following the premiere of its video.
Taylor Swift rockets onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 1 with “Shake It Off.” As expected, her new self-empowerment anthem debuts at the top following its first week of availability.
The explosion of “Shake” also spurs Swift to vault to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (which measures song and album sales, radio airplay, streaming and social activity), up from No. 69 last week. (A deeper story covering the latest Artist 100 to follow on Billboard.com.)
The lead single from Swift’s Oct. 27 Big Machine Records album 1989 soars in at the Hot 100′s summit fueled by a combination of immense sales, radio airplay and streaming (the chart’s three measurement components). Swift released the song for digital purchase and to radio, and premiered its official video, last Monday (Aug. 18, just after 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET), the same day that she hosted a Yahoo! live stream announcing the new set’s release.
Capital FM spoke to Tayor today about her upcoming album “1989″. She revealed that her new music will sound nothing like the songs she’s made before, and that it’s going to feature a lot of late eighties elements! You can read the full article below.
Taylor’s feeling VERY happy with her new album… and she’s given Capital the inside scoop on what to expect!
Last week the ’22′ star announced her new record as ’1989′, along with new single ‘Shake It Off’, and has now opened up exclusively to us about what she has in store for the #Swifties.
“One of the things you can expect is that I’m really trying to challenge myself in every single way possible to make music that doesn’t sound like music I’ve made before,” Taylor revealed to Capital’s Max. ‘When you get into the album there are a lot of late eighties sounds and vocal stylings and production elements.
“We were really just playing around with this album and didn’t limit ourselves,” Taylor explained. “What ended up happening was we made an album that really sounds like an album, it’s really sonically cohesive, and I’m really proud of it.”
It was announced yesterday that Taylor’s latest single “Shake It Off” has broken the record for the highest debut ever on Adult Pop Songs! You can read the full article below for more details. Congratulations to Taylor on her new achievement!
