WANEGBT Back At #1 On Billboard Hot 100

‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ rebounds 2-1 for a third week on top, marking the longest command for a country song since Kenny Rogers’ ‘Lady’

Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” reunites with the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, rebounding 2-1 for a third total week at the summit. With her return trip to No. 1, “Never” claims the longest rule atop the Hot 100 for a country song in almost 32 years.

Listen to ‘Ronan’
Not satisfied with her notable No. 1, Swift also posts the chart’s highest debut, as charity single “Ronan” soars in at No. 16.

The three weeks in charge for “Never” represent the longest Hot 100 reign for a country title since Kenny Rogers’ “Lady” Led for six weeks, beginning Nov. 15, 1980. The smoldering ballad had already worked its way into chart headlines this year: the song was written by Lionel Richie, who led the Country Albums chart for four weeks beginning in April with “Tuskegee,” a duets album of covers of his classic R&B hits featuring country acts. The set includes an update of “Lady,” featuring Rogers. In addition to topping the Hot 100 for six frames, the original “Lady” led Country Songs for one week (Nov. 22, 1980).

  1. Big fan of Taylor’s, but how dare this article compare WANEGBT to a classic country hit like Kenny Roger’s “Lady!” Sorry, but WANEGBT is a POP song, not Country. Get it right!

  2. Thank you John for saying the words right out of my mounth. WANEGBT is NOT a country song, stop pretending you can through a banjo in the background to make it “country” it is a pop song through and through, I’m really surprised country radio is giving it any air time.
    Don’t get me wrong I lovelovelove Taylor, I just wish she would stay with her roots

  3. just wait for her CD,
