Taylor Swift surpasses Drake… and the Beatles
Taylor Swift Taylor Swift made music history by becoming the first artist ever to reach the entire Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100.

Not surprisingly, Anti-Hero is at number one, and nine other tracks from the album Midnights released on October 21 round out the top two to ten positions!

The album has topped the Billboard 200 albums chart and just had its biggest week in seven years.

The pop singer has thus surpassed the Canadian rapper Drake, who took nine of the top ten spots on the Billboard Hot 10 for one week in September 2021. It should also be noted that in 1964, five Beatles songs had occupied the Top 5.

In short, Swift can now boast the most Top 10 hits among women on the chart with a total of 40, surpassing Madonna.

In the case of Drake, he has 59 Top 10s.

Taylor Swift had one of the most historic weeks in the 64-year history of the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the first artist to reach the entire Top 10 at once.

However, it is worth noting the difference between the music industries of yesterday and today, as well as those in the consumption and distribution of albums and songs, making it difficult to compare Taylor Swift and the Beatles, for example, within a system like Billboard’s.
