  • Taylor Swift's single "Fortnight," featuring Post Malone, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Despite writing ubiquitous hits like "You Belong With Me" and "Love Story" earlier in her career (which peaked at No. 2 and No. 4, respectively), "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" was Swift's first-ever song to top the chart.

The country-pop-crossover smash was released as the lead single from Swift's fourth studio album "Red." It rose from No. 72 to No. 1 in its second week of tracking and remained atop the chart for three weeks.

2. "Shake It Off"

"Shake It Off" was released as the lead single from Swift's fifth album "1989." It became her first song to debut at No. 1 and remained atop the chart for four weeks.

3. "Blank Space"

"Blank Space," the second single from "1989," debuted at No. 18 on the Hot 100.

It rose to No. 13 before soaring to No. 1 in its third week — dethroning "Shake It Off" and making Swift the first woman in history to replace herself in the chart's top spot.

"Blank Space" went on to become one of Swift's biggest hits, reigning atop the chart for seven weeks.

A remix of "Bad Blood" featuring Kendrick Lamar was released as the fourth single from "1989" on May 17, 2015.

It rose from No. 53 to the chart's top spot after the music video premiered at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards and broke the Vevo record for most views in 24 hours.

5. "Look What You Made Me Do"

Despite mixed reactions from critics, Swift's lead single for "Reputation" rose to No. 1 after its first full week of tracking, breaking the weekly streaming record for a song by a woman.

Once again, Swift's music video broke the record for most views within 24 hours, racking up 43.2 million views in its first day.

"Look What You Made Me Do" remained atop the chart for three weeks.

6. "Cardigan"

Swift announced the arrival of her eighth album, "Folklore," just one day in advance. The second track, "Cardigan," was released at the same time as the album and promoted with a whimsical music video.

"Folklore" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 while "Cardigan" simultaneously debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, making Swift the first artist in history to open atop both charts in the same week.

7. "Willow"

Just five months after "Folklore," Swift repeated her pandemic-era strategy and surprise-released "Evermore" alongside its lead single. The music video for "Willow" is painted as a witchy sequel to "Cardigan," with plenty of Easter eggs for fans buried in the details.

Again, "Evermore" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 while "Willow" simultaneously debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, making Swift the first artist to debut atop both charts simultaneously — twice. (She has now done it six times.)

8. "All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor's Version) (From the Vault)"

"Red (Taylor's Version)" was the second rerecorded album Swift released. It was accompanied by the long-awaited extended version of "All Too Well," a fan-favorite track from the original album.

"All Too Well (10 Minute Version)" was promoted with a self-directed short film and plenty of theories about the song's potential muse. Fittingly, it debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100.

9. "Anti-Hero"

"Anti-Hero" was released alongside "Midnights" and promoted as the album's lead single.

It quickly became Swift's biggest hit ever, reigning atop the Hot 100 for eight weeks and surpassing "Blank Space" as her longest-running No. 1 song.

The same week that "Anti-Hero" debuted at No. 1, Swift became the first and only artist in history to occupy the entire top 10 on the Hot 100. The hit single was flanked by "Lavender Haze" (No. 2), "Maroon" (No. 3), "Snow on the Beach" (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).

10. "Cruel Summer"

"Cruel Summer" was originally released as the second track on Swift's 2019 album "Lover."

Although it was identified early as a fan favorite, the song was never promoted as a single and debuted modestly at No. 29 on the Hot 100.

Four years later, Swift transformed "Cruel Summer" into a showstopping spectacle on The Eras Tour. Streams of the song began to surge and it reigned atop Billboard's Pop Airplay chart for two months. Swift's label sent the song to pop radio in June 2023.

Finally, following the release of "The Cruelest Summer" EP — which includes a live version of the song and a remix by LP Giobbi — the song reached No. 1 on the Hot 100, marking Swift's milestone 10th chart-topper. It later returned to the top spot, notching four weeks total.

11. "Is It Over Now?"

"Is It Over Now?" was released as the final vault track on "1989 (Taylor's Version)," a rerecording of her beloved fifth album.

Although it wasn't initially slated as a single, passionate fan reception pushed Swift's team to serve the song to pop radio.

"Is It Over Now?" debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100, dethroning "Cruel Summer." Swift is the only woman in history to replace herself in the top spot; she previously achieved the feat in 2014, when "Blank Space" took the crown from "Shake It Off."

12. "Fortnight" featuring Post Malone

"Fortnight" was released alongside "The Tortured Poets Department" and promoted as the album's lead single.

The Post Malone duet debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 while "Poets" simultaneously debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, earning Swift's biggest sales week to date.

Once again, Swift managed to occupy the entire top 10 of the Hot 100, becoming the first and only artist to achieve the feat twice. In fact, the top 14 positions on the chart were occupied by "Poets" tracks, including "Down Bad" (No. 2) and "I Can Do It With a Broken Heart" (No. 3), all the way through to "The Smallest Man Who Ever Lived" (No. 14).

Swift is now tied with Madonna and The Supremes for the fifth-most No. 1 hits in history.
