The fifth radio single from 1989 slips from its No. 12 Hot 100 high to No. 13 (Swift’s favorite number). But on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart, it races 14-10, becoming the fifth top 10 from the set on the tally, with the first four all hitting No. 1: “Shake It Off” (two weeks), “Blank Space” (six), “Style” (three) and “Bad Blood,” featuring Kendrick Lamar (five).
If “Dreams” hits No. 1 on Pop Songs, 1989 would become just the second album to yield at least five leaders on the list: Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream generated a record six in 2010-12. (Justin Timberlake’s FutureSex/LoveSounds, in 2006-07, and Lady Gaga’s The Fame, in 2009, also landed four No. 1s apiece.)
Taylor has been featured on Fortune Magazine’s 40 Under 40 list! She comes in at #6 on the list for her record breaking album sales and her letter to Apple earlier this year. Read more about this honor below!
6. Taylor Swift, 25
The country crooner turned pop mega-star was the single highest-earning musician last year, but that’s not what earned her the respect and attention of the business world. It was her surprising and effective public stance against free music. First she stood up to Spotify, pulling her entire catalog and penning a Wall Street Journal op-ed that “music should not be free.” This year, she moved on to a bigger force: Apple. Just as the company was offering a trial period for its much-touted new Apple Music platform, Swift wrote a blog post pressuring it to rethink its artist pay model. (Apple had refused to pay artists during the service’s first three months.) It worked. Apple relented, making Swift the poster child for all artists hoping to reclaim their rights—and their revenue—in a digital world. Now that’s major influence she can’t shake off.

Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” rises to #4 on the Digital Songs chart. Its cumulative US total is nearly 700K.
While Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” dips to #13 on this week’s all-encompassing Billboard Hot 100, it rises to a new peak on the Digital Songs subchart.
Thanks to US sales of 84,444 during the September 11-17 tracking week, “Wildest Dreams” earns #4 on this week’s Digital Songs chat. Only Justin Bieber’s “What Do You Mean?,” The Weeknd’s “The Hills,” and Drake’s “Hotline Bling” sold better during the official tracking period.
With those 84,444 paid US downloads added to its tally, “Wildest Dreams” boasted a cumulative sales total of 697,969 when the aforementioned 9/11-17 tracking week concluded.
Already certified gold, “Wildest Dreams” is the fifth single from Swift’s “1989.”
