This week just keeps getting better for Miss Swift! Check out how she even managed to beat out The Beatles!
I guess it’s really safe to say Speak Now is an unbelievable success. Not only did Taylor Swift sell more than one million copies of her entirely self-penned album in one week, but the singles from Speak Now are also setting Hot 100 chart records!
First of all, the 20-year-old superstar currently has 11(!!) appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart — and the accomplishments don’t stop there.
Taylor is the only female artist to have that many singles on the Hot 100 chart at once. Ever. American Idol winner David Cook and a little group called The Beatles are the last acts to have a huge number of singles on the chart at once:12 for David and 14 for The Beatles.
Taylor also broke new ground because her singles come from one project, making her the only artist ever to have this many chart appearances from one album. Lastly, because some of the Beatles’ singles were covers and David’s were from American Idol performances, Taylor is the first to get that many Hot 100 notches on the music industry’s bed posts that were all entirely self-written. Phew!
Another big round of congrats for our favorite blonde country star! Way to go, Swifty!
