Taylor får mota en utmärkelse

*** 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
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
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).
IFPI Global Recording Artist 2014
Taylor Swift has been named the IFPI Global Recording Artist of 2014, receiving the annual award honouring the most popular recording artist across music downloads, streaming and physical format sales worldwide.
Taylor Swift released her fifth studio album, 1989, in October 2014 and it sold more than 1.2 million copies in its first week of release in the US alone, the highest debut sales week since Eminem’s The Eminem Show in 2002. 1989 also sold well worldwide, becoming a top five hit in Germany, Japan and the UK, the next largest recorded music markets. The album’s lead single, Shake It Off, was a top five hit in more than 20 countries, from Canada to Japan, and its accompanying video was viewed more than 350 million times on YouTube.

Style Taylor sjuttonde singel på topp 10
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.
Taylor till The Tonight Show
NBC announced today that Taylor is set to make an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon next Tuesday, February 17th. Be sure to tune in to watch her interview! Take a look at the article below for more information!
In a Thursday appearance on BBC Radio 1’s “Live Lounge,” Imagine Dragons delivered a performance that merged Taylor Swift’s blockbuster “Blank Space” with Ben E. King’s classic “Stand By Me.”
Next Tuesday, Swift will get to personally tell the band how she felt about the performance.
Per an announcement from NBC, Taylor Swift was confirmed as the lead interview guest for the February 17 edition of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Imagine Dragons will be the evening’s musical guest. The visit will represent Swift’s second appearance as an interview guest. Swift previously appeared last summer in advance of the “1989” album announcement; her visit produced a well-received “Ew!” segment.

1989 närmar sig 6 miljoner världen över
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.

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
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!
