On 5 November 2022, Taylor Swift (USA) locked down every position in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 with tracks from her No.1 album Midnights. “Anti-Hero” (No.1), “Lavender Haze” (No.2), “Maroon” (No.3), “Snow on the Beach” (feat. Lana Del Rey; No.4), “Midnight Rain” (No.5), “Bejeweled” (No.6), “Question…?” (No.7), “You’re on Your Own, Kid” (No.8), “Karma” (No.9) and “Vigilante Shit” (No.10) were the songs that spectacularly re-wrote Hot 100 history, with rapper Drake’s nine simultaneous Top 10 new entries on 18 September 2021 – not to mention The Beatles’ headline-making Top 5 takeover on 4 April 1964 – consigned to footnotes in the wake of Swift’s chart assault.

On the same chart, Swift also had new entries at No.13 (“Mastermind”), No.14 (“Labyrinth”), No.15 (“Sweet Nothing”), No.20 (“Would’ve, Could’ve, Should’ve”), No.21 (“Bigger than the Whole Sky”), No.26 (“The Great War”), No.32 (“Paris”), No.33 (“High Infidelity”), No.41 (“Glitch”) and No.45 (“Dear Reader”). All 13 tracks from the standard version of Midnights, plus the additional seven tracks on the extended “3am Edition”, debuted in the Top 50 of the Hot 100 on 5 November 2022.
