Update: Taylor won several more awards tonight! She also won Songwriter of the Year in recognition of her most-played pop songs from 1989: Bad Blood, Blank Space, Style, and Wildest Dreams.
Taylor Swift added two more honors — the first-ever Taylor Swift Award and Pop Songwriter of the Year — to her crowded shelf of industry accolades at the 64th annual BMI Pop Awards last evening (May 10). Held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., the ceremony honored the writers and publishers of the most-performed pop songs during the past year.
Swift’s eponymous award, in recognition of her creative and artistic talent and influence, marked only the second time in BMI’s 76-year history that the organization has presented an award in an artist’s name.
Michael Jackson was the first to achieve that honor in 1990. Swift also claimed four of the year’s most-performed songs to earn pop songwriter of the year kudos. “Bad Blood,” “Blank Space,” “Style” and “Wildest Dreams” are all featured on the artist’s Billboard 200 No. 1 album 1989.
Taylor Swift’s “Style” earns a 3X platinum honor in the United States.
The second-most-certified digital singles artist in RIAA history continues moving toward the top of the mountain.
On December 7, 2015, Taylor Swift’s “Style” earned a 3X platinum certification from the RIAA. The certification confirms a US unit total of at least 3 million; one unit is equal to 1 paid download or 100 streams.
In elevating “Style” from double platinum to triple platinum, the new certification brings Taylor Swift’s digital single certification total to 96.5 million total units. That brings her within 4.5 million units of the top spot.
Rihanna, who earlier this year dethroned Swift to become the top digital singles artist, has 101 million in unit certifications.
The pop stars’ new singles earn high debuts on the chart. Plus, new music from Rita Ora, Robin Thicke and the return of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis!
Taylor Swift claims her ninth top 10 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks as “Wildest Dreams” starts its chart run at No. 3 on the survey dated Aug. 22. The track’s huge bow owes to a Swift tweet announcing “Dreams” as the fifth single from her current album, 1989.
Good news for the new release – all of Swift’s previous 1989 singles have ascended to No. 1 on Top Tracks: “Shake It Off” (one week), “Blank Space” (three weeks), “Style” (one week) and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Bad Blood” remix (two weeks).
Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday).
Lana’s ‘High’ Start: Just below Swift, Lana Del Rey grabs a No. 4 bow for “High by the Beach,” a new cut from her upcoming album, Honeymoon.

Taylor Swift receives a gold certification for her “Wildest Dreams.” “Style,” meanwhile, goes double platinum.
A fifth track from Taylor Swift’s “1989” has officially earned a certification under the RIAA’s Digital Singles program.

Issued June 30, the gold certification confirms a unit total in excess of 500,000. A unit is equivalent to one paid download or 100 streams.
— In addition to scoring the gold certification for “Wildest Dreams,” Swift also earned a new award for her “Style.” The third single from “1989” is now a double-platinum digital single in the United States.
Previous singles “Shake it Off” and “Blank Space” are also multi-platinum. Current single “Bad Blood” is platinum.
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).
Swift scores her third leader on the list from ‘1989.’ Plus, new No. 1s for Fetty Wap, Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown Band. Plus, Muse returns.

Taylor Swift is poised to claim the #1 spot on the official hot adult contemporary airplay chart.
As it works to fight off Maroon 5’s “Sugar” and earn a third straight week at #1 on the pop airplay chart, Taylor Swift’s “Style” puts itself in position to go #1 at another key radio format.
According to Mediabase, “Style” now ranks as hot adult contemporary radio’s most played song.
“Style” claims #1 on Saturday’s edition of the rolling Hot AC airplay chart courtesy the 7,008 spins it received between March 21 and 27. If it can retain its lead for one more day–and all indications are that it will–it will officially top the format’s airplay chart (which is based on Sunday-Saturday airplay).
Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” which is #2 on the rolling chart, claimed #1 on last week’s edition of the official Hot AC listing.
Swift’s previous “1989” singles “Style” and “Blank Space” also reached #1 at Hot AC.
In addition to its #1 positions at pop and Hot AC, “Style” holds the #13 position on the rolling adult contemporary chart and the #32 spot on the rhythmic listing.
Taylor Swift’s “Style” goes top ten on the Billboard Hot 100.
