  “Bad Blood” Reaches Top 10 at Adult Contemporary Radio
 

Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” reaches the Top 10 on this week’s Mediabase adult contemporary airplay chart.

While Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” has peaked at the pop, hot adult contemporary and rhythmic radio formats, it continues to advance at adult contemporary.

This week, it enters the format’s Top 10.

Spun ~1,304 times during the August 9-15 tracking week (+72), “Bad Blood” rises one place to #10 on Mediabase’s AC airplay chart.

“Bad Blood” is the fourth Top 10 AC hit from Swift’s “1989.” Previous singles “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “Style” all ultimately reached #1.

“Style” still holds a Top 10 position on the AC airplay chart. It claims #6 thanks to ~2,082 tracking week spins (+4).

“Bad Blood” is the chart’s lone addition to the Top 10. Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” retains the top spot.

  The 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time
 

Rolling Stone has created a list of the 100 greatest songwriters of all time. Taylor is number 97 and the youngest! Read the story below.

97. TAYLOR SWIFT

Many singer-songwriters reach the point where they have too many great tunes to fit into a live show. Taylor Swift reached that peak before she turned 21. And then she just kept going. She might be the youngest artist on this list — as you may have heard, she was born in 1989, the year Green Day released their first record. But she’s already written two or three careers’ worth of keepers. “Hi, I’m Taylor,” she told the crowds on her Red tour. “I write songs about my feelings. I’m told I have a lot of feelings.” Swift’s first three albums display her emotional yet uncommonly inventive country style — even early hits like “Our Song” and “Tim McGraw” sound like nobody else. (Only she could slip the line “Any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored” into a teen romance like “Ours.”) But she’s really hit her stride with the pop mastery of Red and 1989, especially on confessional ballads like “Clean” and “All Too Well.” There’s no limit to where she can go from here.

  “Fearless” Officially Certified 7X Platinum
 

Taylor Swift’s “Fearless” has been certified 7X platinum in the United States.

“Fearless,” which thus far reigns as the best-selling album of Taylor Swift’s career, recently earned a new sales certification.

On August 5, 2015, the 2008 album was awarded a 7x platinum certification from the RIAA. That certification confirms a US shipment total in excess of 7 million copies.

Successful as a package, “Fearless” also produced blockbuster, multi-platinum singles in songs like “Love Story,” “White Horse,” “You Belong With Me” and “Fifteen.”

And its value goes beyond the commercial realm. It won the Grammy for Album of the Year.

  Taylor’s 1989 Tour: $86 Million Grossed (And Counting)
 

No surprise — Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour continues to do blockbuster business.

Taylor Swift takes her 1989 World Tour back to No. 1 on this week’s roundup of Hot Tours (see list, below) for the third time since hitting the road in the U.S. in May. Fueling this top ranking are $28 million in sales from five shows at three of the tour’s 17 North American stadiums on the tour schedule, Chicago’s Soldier Field, Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., and Vancouver’s BC Place Stadium.

The two-show run on July 18-19 at Soldier Field was a return engagement for Swift who first headlined at the Chicago venue in 2013 during her Red tour. Ticket sales at the stadium rose this year with a jump in single-show attendance by 4,245 seats.

The Gillette Stadium run on July 24-25 marked the pop star’s fourth consecutive tour to play the Boston-area venue. She has sold out a total of seven concerts at the stadium since her headlining debut on June 5, 2010, during the Fearless tour. Her overall sales at Gillette lands at $33.7 million from 395,229 sold seats.

The final stadium this week, BC Place in Vancouver, also hosted the singer-songwriter during the Red tour two years ago and reported a rise in sold tickets this summer. Attendance for her Aug. 1 event was 41,463, an increase of 321 fans.

  “Bad Blood” Crosses 2 Million Year-to-Date Sales Mark
 

Weekly data will confirm that Taylor Swit’s “Bad Blood” has sold more than 2 million US copies in 2015.

When the data for the July 24-30 tracking week is reported, it will confirm that Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” has driven a total of approximately 2.3 million paid downloads.

More than two million of them came within 2015.

Going into the most recent tracking week, the fourth single from Swift’s blockbuster “1989” had moved approximately 1.96 million copies in the United States. According to Nielsen Music, that contributed to a cumulative total of roughly 2.21 million.

Since the track was projected to post a weekly sales total in the ballpark of 80,000, it should have faced no trouble crossing the 2 million year-to-date mark.

“Bad Blood” is currently 2015’s ninth-best-selling single.

Buzzworthy due to its infectious pop sensibility and presumed targeting of Katy Perry, “Bad Blood” immediately emerged as one of the best-selling “1989” album tracks. A remixed version with Kendrick Lamar debuted as an official single in May 2015; it earned a week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100

  “Bad Blood” Earns Sixth Week As Pop Radio’s #1 Song
 

Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop airplay chart.

While its margin of victory was a mere 105 spins, it was a margin of victory nonetheless. Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” earns a sixth week atop the Mediabase pop radio airplay chart.

The six-week reign ties that achieved by Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars)” earlier this year.

This week’s “Bad Blood” victory comes on the strength of the song’s ~18,013 tracking week spins. That total trails last week’s count by 1,234, but it still bests the spin count of OMI’s “Cheerleader” by the aforementioned 105.

“Cheerleader,” which holds at #2, received ~17,908 plays during the July 19-25 tracking week (+1,454). The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” follows at #3 on the strength of ~16,836 spins (+1,278), while David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha and Afrojack)” (~15,201, -1,151) and Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It (featuring Kid Ink)” (~14,231, +657) complete the Top 5.

While “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Hey Mama” swapped positions, all five songs also appeared in last week’s Top 5.

Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” claims #1 at pop radio for a fifth straight week and tops Hot AC for a second straight week.

While it suffered a slight week-over-week airplay loss, Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood (featuring Kendrick Lamar)” easily earns a fifth week atop Mediabase’s pop radio airplay chart.

It also earns a second straight stint at #1 on the hot adult contemporary airplay chart.

The song’s latest pop victory comes courtesy its 19,246 tracking week spins (-142). The spin count bests that of OMI’s #2 “Cheerleader” (16,454) by nearly 3000.

A total of 6,835 plays gives “Bad Blood” a second straight victory at Hot AC. Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again (featuring Charlie Puth),” which earns the runner-up slot, scored 6,376 plays during the July 12-18 tracking week.

David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha and Afrojack)” (#3, -1 | 16,352, +97), The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” (#6, +2 | 15,556, +2329) and Fifth Harmony’s “Worth It (featuring Kid Ink)” (#5, +2 | 13,573, +461) complete the top five on Mediabase’s pop chart.

“Can’t Feel My Face” makes its inaugural appearance in the weekly top five. “Worth It” re-enters this week.

Walk the Moon’s “Shut Up and Dance” (#3, -1 | 6,359, -72), Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song” (#4, +2 | 6,328, +435) and Jason Derulo’s “Want to Want Me” (#5, -1 | 5,954, -162) complete the Hot AC top five. “Fight Song” makes its first Top 5 appearance this week.

— A multi-format hit, “Bad Blood” also holds the #8 spot at rhythmic radio and the #12 spot at adult contemporary.

  Taylor to Sell Clothing Line Designed for Chinese Shoppers
 

Fresh off of her victory against Apple Inc., Taylor Swift is taking on an even more ambitious challenge: conquering China.

The singer is teaming up with JD.com Inc., the second-largest e-commerce company in China, to sell a new fashion line designed specifically for Chinese shoppers. Dresses, sweatshirts and other tops will be available in August on the website, ahead of Swift’s “1989” tour visit to Shanghai in November.

JD is looking to Swift to help expand deeper into clothing, where it’s chasing China’s No. 1 e-commerce company, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. As part of the push, JD is wooing U.S. brands by eschewing the knockoff merchandise that’s common in some Chinese marketplaces.

Swift, a seven-time Grammy Award winner, showed her clout in the music industry last month when she confronted Apple and won. She persuaded the technology giant to pay royalties to artists during a three-month trial period of a new music service, a reversal of its earlier policy.
