Taylor’s latest single “Shake It Off” has sold an additional 355,000 copies this past week and remained at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100! You can read the full article below for more details. Congratulations, Taylor!
Taylor Swift scores a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Shake It Off.” The song debuted at the summit last week.
Meanwhile, Meghan Trainor rebounds 3-2 with “All About That Bass,” while the trio of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj powers 9-4 with “Bang Bang.”
As we do each Wednesday (the day that the sales/airplay/streaming-based Hot 100 is compiled each week), let’s run down the numbers behind all the movers and “shake”-rs in the top 10.
The lead single from Swift’s album 1989, due Oct. 27, logs a second week atop the Hot 100 despite an overall 36 percent loss in points after its lofty launch last week. Still, “Shake” leads the Digital Songs chart for a second week with 355,000 downloads sold (down 35 percent), according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s sold 899,000 in its first two weeks combined.
