On the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated Sept. 23, 2006, Taylor Swift made her arrival as her debut single, “Tim McGraw,” entered at No. 86.

Since then, Swift has become one of the most accomplished artists in the Hot 100’s entire history.

As of the Hot 100 dated Dec. 16, 2023, Swift boasts 232 career charted titles – the most among women. Her 49 top 10s and 138 top 40 hits (of which “Tim McGraw” became her first, rising to No. 40) are also the most among women, while her 11 No. 1s place her in a tie for the eighth-most leaders among all acts.

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.

Meanwhile, beyond her chart triumphs, Swift was honored as the first Woman of the Decade at Billboard’s 2019 Women In Music celebration, not just for her commercial success, but for her commitment to protecting creative rights, music education, literacy programs, cancer research, disaster relief and the Time’s Up initiative. Plus, when she was unable to reclaim the masters of her first six albums, she forged a new path by rerecording her catalog, and earning even more chart honors in the process, including her most recent Hot 100 No. 1, “Is It Over Now? (Taylor’s Version) [From the Vault],” in November.
