Six-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift this week reaches #1 on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart with "I Knew You Were Trouble.", from her 5+ million-selling current album RED. Released on Big Machine Records, RED has been certified 4X Platinum in the U.S. for sales in excess of 4 million albums, and the disc's Worldwide sales total is now past 5.4 million. The single "I Knew You Were Trouble." has sold over 3 million copies in the U.S. alone, has topped the iTunes all genres chart, and is a Worldwide smash, already reaching #1 in Australia and New Zealand, and rapidly ascending Top 10 airplay charts around the globe in the UK, Canada, and territories in Europe, Asia and Africa. The pop success of "Trouble" follows Taylor's recent Billboard Hot 100 #1 and 3X Platinum single "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," another Worldwide chart-topper and the lead single from RED.
Taylor first topped Billboard's pop charts in 2009, when "Love Story" became the first country crossover to land at #1 on CHR/Top 40 in the 16-year history of Billboard's Nielsen BDS chart. At Country radio, "Begin Again" is at #8* and climbing Billboard's Top 10, with more than 25 million audience impressions this week alone. Taylor spent 9 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country Songs chart with "Never Ever," setting Billboard's all-time record for most weeks at #1 on the Country chart by a female artist.
With RED, Taylor Swift becomes the first artist since the Beatles (and the only female artist in history) to log six or more weeks at #1 with three consecutive studio albums. RED has topped the Billboard 200 Albums Chart for seven weeks, following Fearless (11 weeks), and Speak Now (six weeks).
