Swift, having since deftly traversed country, pop, adult alternative and more genres, has consistently added to her Hot 100 legacy. In 2012, she scored her first No. 1 with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” while in 2021 she defied the belief that pop music caters only to shorter attention spans, as, thanks to an update of a fan favorite, she notched the longest No. 1 single in the survey’s archives: “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version),” at 10 minutes and 13 seconds in length.

A year later, Swift achieved the unprecedented feat of monopolizing the Hot 100’s top 10 in a single frame, as, on the chart dated Nov. 5, 2022, she infused the region with 10 tracks from her 2022 album Midnights, led by the No. 1 launch of the set’s lead single, “Anti-Hero.”

In 2023, Swift continues to rewrite Hot 100 history. “Cruel Summer” became her 10th No. 1. Reigning more than four years after its release on her 2019 album, Lover, it completed the longest ascent to the top for a non-holiday song by a woman with no accompanying artists.
