Taylor Swift made history once again as she claimed the top 14 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart dated May 4. All of the tracks, led by “Fortnight,” featuring Post Malone at the summit, are from her freshly released album, The Tortured Poets Department.

“You’ve outdone yourselves, this is unbelievable,” the 34-year-old superstar wrote on social media on Monday (April 29), responding to the exciting news.

She also charts 32 songs – all 31 from the deluxe version of The Tortured Poets Department plus Lover stand-out hit “Cruel Summer” – on the latest list overall, the most ever in a single week by a woman. Swift was already the only artist ever to dominate the Hot 100’s entire top 10 — thanks to tracks from her last album of all-new material, Midnights, in 2022, led by the collection’s “Anti-Hero.”

On streaming, Tortured Poets has also earned more than a billion listens across its 31 tracks on Spotify in just five days since its release, the fastest LP to ever do so. The milestone marks only the latest record Swift has set with the new album over the past few days, with Tortured Poets recently becoming Spotify’s most streamed album in a single day with more than 300 million streams accumulated in its first 24 hours of availability. Similarly, “Fortnight” set a new precedent for most single-day streams amongst individual songs on the platform.

“This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up,” Swift wrote of her latest project on Instagram upon its release. “There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed. And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted. This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it.”
