Style blir den tredje första placeringen

Taylor senaste singel Style är tredje singel i rad (från 1989) som nått plats nummer ett på Billboards Pop Chart. Senaste gången en kvinnlig artist klarade av denna bedrift var för tre år sedan. Hjödpunkerta från denna veckas topplisor hittar ni här.
 

Pop Songs
*** No. 1 (1 week)*** "Style" Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift tallies her third Pop Songs No. 1 from 1989, and her fifth overall, as "Style" shoots 3-1. Prior single "Blank Space" reigned for six weeks and the set's lead single, "Shake It Off," led for two. She first topped the chart with "Love Story" (one week, 2009) and "I Knew You Were Trouble." (seven weeks, 2013).

1989 is the first album to yield three Pop Songs No. 1s since Maroon 5's Overexposed (three, 2012-13). It's the first by a female artist since Katy Perry's Teenage Dream generated a record six No. 1s in 2010-12.

1989 sålt fler exemplar än Red och Speak Now

På enbarat nitton veckor har Taylor senaste album 1989 lyckats sälja i fler exemplar än både Red och Speak Now. 1989 är nu uppe i totalt 4,5 miljoner exemplar mot Red's 4,1 miljoner sålda exemplar på och Speak Nows 4,4 miljoner sålda exemplar. Däremot är det några miljoner exemplar innan 1989 kommer ikapp Taylors sjävbetitlade album med 5,4 miljoner sålda exemplar och Fearless med 6,9 miljoner sålda exemplar. 
 

After just 19 weeks of release, Taylor Swift's 1989 has now outsold both of her last two albums.

(It seems the pop music thing is working out just fine for the diva, eh? 1989 is her first all-pop album after four country sets.)

1989 sold another 44,000 copies in the week ending March 8, according to Nielsen Music, lifting the title's total sales to 4.505 million. 1989 already surpassed the sales of Swift's last album, 2012's Red (4.160 million after 124 weeks), a few weeks ago, while 1989 now jumps past her earlier album, 2010's Speak Now (4.480 million after 228 weeks) in the latest tracking week.

1989 was the top selling album of 2014 (3.661 million sold that year) and remains the top seller of 2015 so far (844,000). It famously debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 1.287 million sold in its first week.

Selling millions of albums is nothing new for Swift, of course. The new twist to her sales story is 1989's sales rate. In merely 19 weeks, it has surpassed the sales of what was her third-biggest seller, which has been on sale for 228 weeks.

Next up on Swift's personal hit list: her self-titled 2006 debut (5.492 million) and her biggest seller, 2008's Fearless (6.909 million).

For those keeping score, Swift's cumulative album sales (including her five her studio efforts, and other assorted live sets, EPs, etc.) now stand at 27.67 million. In terms of album sales, she is the seventh-largest selling female artist since Nielsen began tracking sales in 1991.

Intervju med The Telegraph

När Taylor var i London gav hon en exlusiv intervju med The Telegraph där hon bland annat pratar om att hon önskar att det var Swiftmas varje dag.
 
Taylor Swift: 'A relationship? No one’s going to sign up for this'

In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, the world's biggest pop star reveals why she'll always be a worrier, how she wishes it could be 'Swiftmas' every day and muses on whether she's capable of having a happy relationship

Taylor Swift is not only the biggest pop star on the planet, but also the biggest worrier. Right now she is worrying about this interview – her first major sit-down chat of the year. She has just come from a production meeting for her forth­coming world tour, fretting about the set list, sight lines and how to get her piano to the right part of the stage at the right time. Before that, when she woke up, she was immediately gripped with anxiety about something she said last night (even though it was only using the word ‘interjection’ when she meant ‘injection’). ‘I worry about everything all the time,’ she says with a grin. ‘We could do our entire interview me telling you how many things I’ve worried about since breakfast. “The Neuroses of Taylor Swift” is probably going to be the article headline.’

Most pop stars of Swift’s stature pay other people to worry about these things. And while the buzz of activity as we arrive at the well-appointed Beverly Hills house being used by Team Swift for their production meeting indicates that she has no shortage of people looking out for her, she remains hands-on with every aspect of her career.

But then the one thing she doesn’t need to worry about is how that career is going. It is Grammys weekend when we meet, and although Swift is attending rather than performing, she is still going to be the centre of attention.

There are plenty of reasons. She is the only artist ever to sell more than a million first-week US copies of three separate albums – Speak Now in 2010, Red in 2012, and 1989, released in October, which racked up the biggest first-week American sales since 2002 and went to number one around the world, including the UK, where it was the best-selling album by an international artist last year. Its lead single, Shake It Off, was an iTunes number one in 64 countries. She is the first artist since the Beatles to spend six or more weeks at number one in the United States with three consecutive albums (at the time of writing, 1989 is into its 11th week at the top).

Style Taylor sjuttonde singel på topp 10

Taylors senaste single Style är hennes sjuttonde singel som placerat signel som placerat sig på Billboard Hot 100. Style är även Taylors tredje singel från 1989 som placerat sig på Billboard Hot 100. Taylor ligger nu på delad sjätteplats över flest topp 10 på Billboard Hot 100 tillsammans med Aretha Franklin.
 
Taylor Swift’s “Style” goes top ten on the Billboard Hot 100.

The music video might not have been a smash hit in the vein of “Blank Space,” but it still helped Taylor Swift’s “Style” vault into the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100.

After cracking the top twenty last week, Swift’s latest “1989” single rises to #10 on this week’s edition of the all-encompassing listing. It becomes the third top ten hit from the album and the seventeenth of Swift’s career.

Swift now ties Aretha Franklin’s mark for sixth-most Hot 100 top ten hits. Only Madonna (38), Mariah Carey (27), Janet Jackson (27), Rihanna (26) and Whitney Houston (23) are responsible for more.

In addition to the late-week streaming activity associated with its video, “Style” also benefited from big airplay gains. The track enjoyed sizable rises on the pop, adult pop, adult contemporary and rhythmic radio formats.

1989 närmar sig 6 miljoner världen över

Nyligen passerade 1989 4 miljoner sålda album i USA och börjar nu närma sig 6 miljoner sålda exemplar över hela världen. I artikeln nedan står det även att hennes tredje singel Style väntas placera sig på top 10 när sammanställningen av Mediabase US pop radio airplay chart presenteras under söndagen (idag).
 
Taylor Swift's "1989," which is a member of the 4 million club in the United States, moves past the 6 million sales mark on a worldwide basis.

In crossing the 4 million mark after twelve weeks, “1989” provided yet another illustration of Taylor Swift’s commercial prowess in the United States.

That prowess is not limited to her home country.

While her star shines brightest in the United States, it shines across the globe. The latest worldwide sales figure for Swift’s “1989” offers proof of that notion.

With last week’s 120,000 sales included, “1989” now claims a cumulative, worldwide total of 6.04 million. 4.19 million of those come from the US.

Even if she goes home without a Grammy this Sunday, news that of the latest “1989” achievement will not be the only bright spot of Taylor Swift’s weekend. “Style,” her latest single, is poised to reach the top ten on Sunday’s official edition of the Mediabase US pop radio airplay chart.

1989 spenderar 10 veckor på Billboard 200's förstaplats

Taylor uppnår ytterligare en milstolpe i karriären. Som andra kvinna någonsin har hon nu två album som legat etta 10 veckor eller mer som på Billboard 200-listan. Första gången hon gjorde det var med Fearless som var listetta 11 veckor totalt under åren 2008-2009. och nu med 1989 som spenderar sin tionde vecka där just nu. Den första kvinna att uppnå den bedriften är Whitney Houston som haft tre album som spenderat 10 veckor eller mer på topplistan. 
 
 

Taylor Swift's '1989' Scores Milestone 10th Week at No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

Taylor Swift's 1989 album returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart for a milestone 10th nonconsecutive week, making Swift just the second woman in history to earn two albums with at least 10 weeks atop the list.

Swift previously logged 11 weeks at No. 1 with her second album, Fearless, in 2008 and 2009. (She has two further No. 1s: Speak Now, with six weeks at No. 1, and Red, with seven weeks in the penthouse.)

1989 steps back to No. 1 (rising 2-1) with 101,000 equivalent album units earned (down 15 percent) in the week ending Feb. 1, according to Nielsen Music. The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).

Swift follows Whitney Houston as the only woman with multiple albums with 10 weeks at No. 1. Houston managed the feat three times: with her self-titled debut (14 weeks in 1986), her second album, Whitney (11 weeks in 1987) and The Bodyguard soundtrack (20 weeks in 1992 and 1993)...

Taylor uppträder inte på Grammys

Taylor medelade för ungefär en timme sedan att hon inte kommer att uppträda på Grammys i år. Istället kommer hon fokusera på The 1989 World Tour, som drar av stapeln i början av maj.
 
Hey guys!
A lot of you have been asking about the Grammys this week and I just wanted to give you an update. I’m really excited to be nominated for 3 Grammys this year and even more excited that I’ll be there having a dance party/rage fest in the audience. I will also be presenting the award for Best New Artist. Since my whole life is wrapped up and entangled in the planning of The 1989 World Tour right now, I’m not going to be performing on the Grammys this year. I need this time to focus only on the tour. 
I hope I’ll see you out there at one of the stadiums this summer having a rage fest of your own!
Love you.
Taylor
