  ‘Bad Blood’ Tops Another Tally & Breaks Weekly Plays Record
 

The track becomes the fourth No. 1 on the Adult Pop Songs chart from ‘1989’ and rewrites the record for most weekly plays atop Pop Songs.

The honors for Taylor Swift’s smash album 1989 keep on coming.

On the Billboard radio airplay charts dated July 25, fourth 1989 single “Bad Blood” crowns Adult Pop Songs and takes over at No. 1 on Pop Songs.

The track becomes the fourth No. 1 from 1989 on Adult Pop Songs, following “Shake It Off” (eight weeks on top), “Blank Space” (six) and “Style” (two). Only two other albums have yielded at least four No. 1s each on the chart: Maroon 5’s Overexposed (four in 2012-13) and Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream (a record five in 2010-12). (Perry is, of course, the rumored lyrical target of “Blood.”)

“Blood” is Swift’s fifth Adult Pop Songs No. 1 overall, as she first led with “I Knew You Were Trouble.” (March 16, 2013) from her prior studio album, Red. She joins four other artists with at least five total toppers since Adult Pop Songs began in 1996: Maroon 5 (11), Perry, P!nk (eight each) and Nickelback (also five).

Meanwhile, on Pop Songs, “Blood” makes history by logging the most plays in a week ever in the chart’s 22-year history. With a 1 percent gain to 17,474 plays in the week ending July 12, according to Nielsen Music, the song bests the 17,356 plays tallied by Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again,” featuring Charlie Puth, on the chart dated June 13.

  “1989” Crosses the 5 Million US Sales Mark
 

The US sales total for Taylor Swift’s “1989” now exceeds 5 million.

If one somehow required more convincing of the album’s blockbuster status, Taylor Swift’s “1989” just provided the necessary evidence.

The album, which is just eight months into its run, has officially crossed the 5 million sales mark in the United States.

According to Hits Daily Double, “1989” moved approximately 26,916 copies during the week between June 29 and July 5. It entered the week within 12,000 copies of the 5 million mark.

Billboard’s authoritative data will differ slightly, but the disparity will not be enough to affect the new reality: Taylor Swift’s “1989” is a member of the 5 million club.

Despite being her newest release, “1989” is already the third-best-seller of Swift’s career. Its total exceeds 2012’s “Red” and 2010’s “Speak Now” and is within striking distance of the approximately 5.5 million credited to 2006’s “Taylor Swift.”

2008’s “Fearless,” which earned Swift an Album of the Year Grammy and holds her greatest personal sales mark, boasts a US sales total just shy of 7 million.

Prior to this week’s achievement, “1989” had already earned a 5x platinum certification from the RIAA in recognition of a US shipment total in excess of 5 million.

  Taylor’s Earnings: $80 Million In 2015
 

In 2005 Taylor Swift was still a blip on music’s radar: a country-singing teenager with a guitar—and possibly some teardrops—who was just getting noticed for her charismatic voice and talent for song-writing. Fast forward to a decade later and Swift is completing a year that proved to the music industry that she is a force to be reckoned with. With a platinum album, wildly popular world tour and industry clout that made even the seemingly all-powerful Apple change its tune, Swift’s place in music has gone from teen idol to undeniable power broker this past year.

And, as so often is the case, where there is power, there is money. Swift made $80 million between June 2014 and June 2015, making her one of the highest-paid musicians on this year’s Celebrity 100. Swift has her music to thank for most of her income: She is one of the few stars on our list to make in the double-digit millions for music sales—mostly of her 1989 album—and the accompanying world tour has also added millions to her income. Thanks to an enormous fan base, which stretches far past teenage girls, and social media following, Swift has landed lucrative endorsement deals with Keds, Sony and Diet Coke. Maybe this success is why Swift has no trouble shaking off the haters.

  “Style” Becomes Adult Contemporary Radio’s Most Played Song
 

Taylor Swift’s “Style” may finally remove “Thinking Out Loud” from the top of the adult contemporary airplay chart.

As her “Bad Blood” continues to reign over the pop airplay chart, Taylor Swift’s previous single “Style” is finally on the verge of claiming #1 at adult contemporary.

The song, which spent time earlier this year atop Mediabase’s pop and hot adult contemporary airplay charts, is currently the most played song at adult contemporary. If it can retain its lead through Sunday, it will officially become #1 on the Mediabase AC chart.

In doing so, it would dethrone Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud.” Sheeran’s smash, which first seized the crown from Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space,” has reigned since March.

“Style” received 2,746 plays during the seven days between June 20 and 26 (+90). Sheeran’s tune earned 2,738 spins within that window (-22).

Other Top 5 AC songs include Maroon 5’s “Sugar” (#3), Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me Like You Do” (#4) and Kelly Clarkson’s “Heartbeat Song” (#5).

  World’s Highest-Paid Celebrity Couples 2015
 

Ever since Beyoncé and Jay Z began dating over a decade ago, all sorts of rumors have surrounded their relationship. But one speculation that has not reached the tabloids is that either party said “I do” for the money.

Queen Bey has her kingdom, and Jay Z has his empire; together, they ranked first on our highest-earning celebrity couples list in 2013. But they’ve been dethroned by a younger pair on this year’s Celebrity 100, which goes live on the morning of Monday, June 29th. For the first time, the list will rank the world’s top earning entertainers by annual income only, and there will only be three couples where both members make the cut.

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris, $146 million

Though their relationship may be new, this pair has quickly ascended the power couple rankings. The pop singer—who boasts a loyal fan base and plenty of industry clout, recently forcing Apple to pay musicians royalties during the free trial period of its new streaming service—and the Scottish DJ both land in the top 20 on this year’s Celeb 100.

To add to their incomes, each has lucrative endorsement deals: Swift with Diet Coke, Keds and Sony , and Harris with Giorgio Armani and Sol Republic headphones. With careers that only seem to be getting bigger and bigger, these two may be setting themselves up for a longstanding place at the top of this list (that is, if they stay together).
