Buoyed by her “Bad Blood” buzz, the star scores her 25th week at the summit.
Taylor Swift is again the week’s top music act in the U.S., rising 2-1 on the Billboard Artist 100 (dated May 30), fueled by the start of her new single, “Bad Blood.”
The Artist 100 is the first weekly survey dedicated to measuring artist activity across Billboard’s most influential charts, including the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart, Top Album Sales 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 scores her record-extending 25th week atop the Artist 100. As her new Kendrick Lamar-assisted single “Bad Blood” re-enters the Hot 100 at No. 53 following the premiere of its celebrity-studded video at the start of the Billboard Music Awards Sunday (May 17), she gains by 8 percent in overall activity on the Artist 100. She logs a 29 percent surge in social reaction (also claiming a 23rd week at No. 1 on the Social 50 chart) and a 23 percent increase in digital song sales, according to Nielsen Music.
Rounding out the Artist 100’s top five, Maroon 5 bumps 5-2; Wiz Khalifa holds at No. 3; Ed Sheeran lifts 6-4; and The Weekend climbs 8-5.
Taylor Swift is the new Vevo record holder with her star-studded music video Bad Blood. The video was viewed 20.1 million times in 24 hours after it was added to the website on Sunday night.
The 25-year-old singer steals the crown from Nicki Minaj, who clocked up an impressive 19.6 million views of her Anaconda video within an hour of its release in August.
Taylor premiered the highly anticipated music video at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday after teasing fans with stills on her Instagram account for two weeks. The Blank Space singer recruited an impressive cast of famous friends to star in the video, which has no doubt helped to boost its appeal.
The Sin City-style video sees Taylor in her alter ego as Catastrophe, as she strives to confront her nemesis Arsyn, played by Selena Gomez. The singer is joined by stars including Karlie Kloss, Ellie Goulding, Cara Delevingne and Jessica Alba as they prepare for battle in the incredible action-packed video, directed by Joseph Kahn.
Taylor consistently brings in strong audiences on Vevo, with her music videos gathering nearly five billion views to date. Eleven of her music videos including Shake it Off and We are Never Getting Back Together have been viewed over 100 million views each by fans.
The news caps off an incredible week for the singer, who was named number one on the Maxim Hot List and collected eight of the top prizes at the Billboard Music Awards.
XFinity has released a behind the scenes rehearsal video from the 1989 World Tour! The video shows all of the hard work and preparation that went into designing the stage and mentions that Taylor and her team designed it to be as close to as many fans as possible.

After only one day of official promotion, Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” already ranks as the week’s 34th-most played pop song.
The power of the Taylor Swift brand, the buzz stemming from Sunday’s music video premiere, the enthusiasm for the new Kendrick Lamar remix and the hourly promotional airplay provided by iHeartMedia combined to thrust Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” into the Top 40 of Mediabase’s rolling pop airplay chart.
According to Mediabase, “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” was the 34th-most played song during the week between May 12 and May 18. It received 1,955 spins within that seven day window.
Because the original version of “Bad Blood” was already receiving some pop airplay (72 spins between May 5 and 11), Monday, May 18 did not count as the song’s “opening day.” It did, however, represent the day on which the “Bad Blood” remix first emerged — and the day on which pop radio stations began enthusiastically spinning the track.
Based on airplay between May 17 and May 23, the next official Mediabase airplay chart will be issued on Sunday. Given that “Bad Blood” will see its weekly airplay total rise with each coming day, it is a lock to rank very highly on that chart.
— In addition to charting at #34 on the rolling pop listing, “Bad Blood” appears at #35 on the rolling hot adult contemporary chart.
Taylor posted a short behind the scenes video from the Bad Blood music video on her Instagram! The video shows a funny stunt during one of the scenes from the video. We’ve added screen shots from the video to the gallery as well so be sure to check them out!
The 1989 World Tour was featured on Rolling Stone’s Summer’s 2015 Hottest 30 Tours! It came in at #6 on the list and Taylor mentions what will set this tour apart from the others. You can check out the short article below!
Everybody from the Rolling Stones to Taylor Swift is hitting the road. Here are our picks for this year’s can’t-miss shows
Titans of rock (the Rolling Stones, the Who), country megastars (Shania Twain, Kenny Chesney) and pop’s newest icons (Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran) are taking over stadiums, arenas and amphitheaters across North America this summer. The season is shaping up to be one of the biggest in biz history, and we have the ultimate guide to all the big tickets, from Nicki Minaj to Marilyn Manson to Dave Matthews Band.
6. Taylor Swift
Dates: Through October 31st Openers: Haim, Shawn Mendes, Vance Joy (varies by date) Why You Should Go: Taylor Swift says she was on a mission to make her current arena and stadium tour every bit as much of a pop experience as last year’s 1989 album. “I was very adamant that every decision I’ve made creatively in the past had to be almost flipped,” Swift says. “You’re not going to see me playing the banjo.” Producer Max Martin was enlisted to teach her live band how to re-create the 1989 sound. The set list draws most from the record but also includes revamped versions of some old favorites — “‘Love Story,’ ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ and ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ are completely different,” Swift says. Tickets: $33-$250
Taylor is featured on the cover of the Hot List issue of Maxim magazine! Taylor came in at #1 on the Hot List and the issue hits news stands on May 27th. Make sure to check out the cover below!
Taylor Swift is the quintessential American success story: Armed with little more than a guitar, a boatload of ambition, and an uncanny knack for creating a proliferation of perfect pop songs, Swift has spent a decade engineering her own perfectly executed rise from that storied Pennsylvania Christmas-tree farm to the covers of magazines like this one. (So many magazines…) The past 12 months mark Swift’s best year ever, she says: She became tourism ambassador for her adopted hometown of New York, playfully satirized tabloid perceptions of her, and pivoted from her country roots to debut her first-ever pop album, earning the Billboard Woman of the Year award for the second time and assuming her rightful role among a small circle of international superstars. Swift breaks album sales records like lesser pop stars break hearts, all while somehow retaining the same wide-eyed charm that made her so likable in the first place. She is also deeply unconcerned with whether or not you consider her attractive, which of course only makes her more so. We spoke with Swift, as she wrapped up the last day of her 1989 tour rehearsals, about life on the road, feminism, and what it feels like to be named byMaxim the most talented woman alive.
