Taylor Swift has achieved the historic feat of becoming the first-ever artist to claim every slot of the top 10 in the US singles chart.

The singer-songwriter’s latest album, Midnights, is 2022’s fastest-ever release.

Drake held the previous record, with nine out of the 10 singles in the Billboard Hot 100 in September 2021.

“10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES,” Swift Tweeted of her achievement.

Her first single from the album – Anti-Hero – claimed the top spot, marking her ninth career number-one.

The other songs to make the top 10 were Lavender Haze, Maroon, Snow On The Beach, Midnight Rain, Bejeweled,

It racked up 204,000 chart sales in seven days – more than doubling Swift’s previous best of 90,300 – which she achieved with her album 1989, released in 2014.

Swift also dominated the UK charts last week, with Midnights and Anti-Hero both landing number-one spots.

It comes just days after the controversy over the music video for Anti-Hero.

The original version of the song showed the pop superstar stepping onto bathroom scales before the dial spins to reveal the word “fat”.

But it was updated on YouTube and Apple Music, with the new version showing Swift receiving only a disapproving look from a doppelganger standing to one side.

The change was made after some fans and public figures criticized the original scene, suggesting it encouraged “fatphobia”.
