Originally released as the second single from Swift’s blockbuster 1989 album, “Blank Space” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 2014. “Blank Space” is the 11-time Grammy winner’s longest-running No. 1 single with seven weeks atop the chart. The song also earned three nominations at the 58th annual Grammy Awards in the record of the year, song of the year and best pop solo performance categories. Though “Black Space” lost all of its nominations, corresponding album 1989 won the coveted album of the year title as well as best pop vocal album at the 2016 ceremony.
The Joseph Kahn-directed music video for “Blank Space,” meanwhile, took home the awards for best female video and best pop video at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. “Blank Space” joins “Shake It Off” as the second 1989 video to cross 3 billion views on YouTube; those two clips are the two most-viewed music videos of Swift’s career.
