Shake It Off #1 på Hot 100
Taylor Swift's 'Shake It Off' debuts at No.1 on Hot 100
Taylor Swift rockets onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart at No. 1 with "Shake It Off." As expected, her new self-empowerment anthem debuts at the top following its first week of availability.
The explosion of "Shake" also spurs Swift to vault to No. 1 on the Billboard Artist 100 chart (which measures song and album sales, radio airplay, streaming and social activity), up from No. 69 last week. (A deeper story covering the latest Artist 100 to follow on Billboard.com.)
The lead single from Swift's Oct. 27 Big Machine Records album 1989 soars in at the Hot 100's summit fueled by a combination of immense sales, radio airplay and streaming (the chart's three measurement components). Swift released the song for digital purchase and to radio, and premiered its official video, last Monday (Aug. 18, just after 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET), the same day that she hosted a Yahoo! live stream announcing the new set's release.
"Shake" marks Swift's second Hot 100 No. 1, following 2012's three-week leader "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," the first single from her last album, Red.
"Shake" arrives with 544,000 first-week downloads sold in the week ending Aug. 24, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The sum marks the greatest weekly total this year and the fourth-best bow all-time, two of which now belong to Swift. Flo Rida's "Right Round" began with 636,000 (Feb. 28, 2009), followed by Swift's "Together" (623,000, Sept. 1, 2012). Katy Perry's "Roar" ranks third with 557,000 sold in its first week (Aug. 31, 2013).
Previously, Pharrell Williams held this year's best sales mark, when "Happy" sold 490,000 (March 22). The prior top debut of 2014: Ariana Grande's "Problem," featuring Iggy Azalea, which opened with 438,000 (May 17).
"Shake" marks Swift's seventh Digital Songs No. 1 (all of which have debuted at the apex). She ties Britney Spears for the fourth-most leaders, following Rihanna (13), Perry (10) and Eminem (nine).
On the Streaming Songs chart, "Shake" catapults in for a No. 2 debut with 18.4 million first-week U.S. streams, according to Nielsen BDS. With the song not available on on-demand audio subscription services, it arrives with 98 percent of its streaming points from Vevo on YouTube clicks for its video.
And now, after a long week, I'm about to be all.......
