Taylor Swift has reached a new milestone in her illustrious career, tying the record for the most No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Pop Airplay chart. Her latest single, “Karma,” has climbed to the top spot on the chart dated July 22, giving Swift her 11th No. 1 on the list. This achievement puts her on par with Maroon 5, Katy Perry, and Rihanna, who have also accumulated 11 chart-toppers each.

With this accomplishment, Taylor Swift joins an exclusive club of artists who have achieved double-digit No. 1 hits on the Pop Airplay chart. The only other act to accomplish this feat is Justin Bieber, who has 10 No. 1 songs on the chart.

Notably, Swift and Maroon 5 are the only artists who have achieved No. 1 hits on the Pop Airplay chart in the 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s, demonstrating their longevity and continued popularity.

Let’s take a look at Taylor Swift’s 11 No. 1 hits on the Pop Airplay chart, along with the years they topped the chart:

  1. “Karma” – 2023 (current)
  2. “Anti-Hero” – 2022-23
  3. “Delicate” – 2018
  4. “Look What You Made Me Do” – 2017
  5. “Wildest Dreams” – 2015
  6. “Bad Blood” (feat. Kendrick Lamar) – 2015
  7. “Style” – 2015
  8. “Blank Space” – 2014-15
  9. “Shake It Off” – 2014
  10. “I Knew You Were Trouble” – 2013
  11. “Love Story” – 2009

“Karma” is the second No. 1 hit from Taylor Swift’s 2022 album “Midnights,” following “Anti-Hero.” This album marks her third record to generate multiple No. 1 hits, joining “Reputation” (two No. 1 hits in 2017-18) and “1989” (five No. 1 hits in 2014-15).

The success of “Karma” on Pop Airplay can be attributed in part to its remix featuring Ice Spice. The song reached a peak of No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in June, and its popularity has translated to significant airplay on mainstream top 40 radio stations.

In addition to “Karma,” Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” has also made a splash on the Pop Airplay chart. The song has surged from 14th to 8th place, earning the title of the chart’s Greatest Gainer with a 29% increase in plays. This achievement marks Swift’s 22nd top 10 hit on the Pop Airplay chart, tying her with Maroon 5 for the second-most top 10 hits, behind Rihanna’s 30.

As Taylor Swift continues to dominate the charts and captivate audiences with her music, fans eagerly await her future releases and anticipate her next moves in the music industry.
