It’s far from over for Taylor Swift. Following the release of her latest “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” Swift claims eight out of the top 10 slots on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart with her third No. 1 hit this year, “Is It Over Now?”
The slot was previously held by her own “Cruel Summer,” which hit the peak despite it being released four years ago and sits at No. 6 this week. That’s just one of the many mind-bending stats attached to Swift’s decades-spanning discography, a collection with major real estate on Billboard’s charts this year thanks to the blockbuster theatrical release of “Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour” and her re-releases of “Speak Now,” and “1989.”

The latter tops the Billboard 200 this week with 1.653 million equivalent album units, putting the re-release ahead of her previous personal best, which was 1.578 million for “Midnights.” “Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version)” is a vault track off of “1989,” meaning the single was written during the recording sessions for the record’s original release in 2014. It steers the Hot 100 in its first week with 32 million streams and 5,000 sold. Over on radio, the single earned 4.7 million radio impressions, according to data provided by Luminate.
The following No. 2 and No. 3 singles boast around 27 million streams and are also “From The Vault” releases, “Now That We Don’t Talk” and “Slut!” Swift also appears in No.s 5, 7, 9 and 10 with “Say Don’t Go,” “Bad Blood,” “Style,” and “Suburban Legends,” respectively.
The only remaining artists to hold their stake amid Swift’s takeover are Doja Cat and SZA. While Doja Cat kicked off her first arena tour this week, she also claims the No. 4 best-performing single in the U.S. with her former chart leader, “Paint the Town Red.” Meanwhile, SZA’s “Snooze,” a single off her 2022 “SOS” record, sits at No. 8.
