CRASHING: Ticketmaster site crashes as Swifties sign up and log in to purchase presale tickets for Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ticketmaster site crashes as Swifties sign up and log in to purchase presale tickets for Taylor Swift’s Era Tour. (Read More Here).

She overtakes Drake, who held the previous record of nine top 10 singles in September 2021. Before him, the Beatles scored eight top 10s in 1964.

Swift's chart domination is thanks to her latest album, Midnights, which has become 2022's fastest-selling release.

"10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES," tweeted the pop star.

The 32-year-old claims the number one spot with the single Anti-Hero, whose chorus, "It's me. Hi! I'm the problem, it's me," has quickly become a Tik Tok trend.

The rest of the top 10 includes album tracks like Lavender Haze, Maroon, Snow On The Beach, Bejewelled and Karma.

All 13 of the songs on Midnights' standard edition make the top 15, interrupted only by Sam Smith's Unholy at 11 and Steve Lacy's Bad Habits at 12.

The seven bonus tracks from Midnights' deluxe "3am edition" appear between numbers 20 and 45.

Swift took fans by surprise when she announced the new album in the closing moments of the 2022 MTV VMAs in New Jersey in August.

She has described the record as the story of "13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life" and "a journey through terrors and sweet dreams".

It sees the star return to the pop palette of her pre-pandemic albums, after the homespun indie-folk of Evermore and Folklore, both released in 2020.

But the subdued sounds of those records persists, and her late-night tales are painted in more muted tones than hits like Shake It Off and Lover.

Part of its success is due to a clever marketing campaign, which saw the album released in multiple collectible formats - including four vinyl editions which combine to make a clock.

But Billboard reported that Swift's Top 10 takeover would have been achieved by streams alone, before sales and radio play were counted.

The Grammy award-winning singer achieved this feat with singles from her latest album “Midnights.”

Swift beats the former record held by Drake who locked in nine out of 10 songs when “Certified Lover Boy” came out last year.

Taking the cool no 1 spot is lead single “Anti-Hero” which was also the first music video from the album and the first song to be promoted to radio when all 13 songs off the album were launched simultaneously at midnight on struck Oct. 21.

“Anti-Hero” recorded 59.7 million streams and 32 million radio airplay audience impressions, all of which boosted it to her ninth No. 1 single on the Hot 100.

Following in close streak is “Lavender Haze,” with 41.4 million streams and 2.4 million impressions in radio airplay.

The other singles in the top 10 include “Maroon,” “Snow on the Beach,“ “Midnight Rain,” “Bejeweled,” “Question…?,” “You’re on Your Own, Kid,” “Karma” and “Vigilante Shit.”

As Swift dominates the Hot 100’s top 10, Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ “Unholy” falls to No. 11, a week after it ascended to the summit. It was the most-streamed (24.3 million, down 4%) and top-selling song (11,300, down 40%) not by Swift in the tracking week, while boasting a 23% gain to 26.7 million in radio audience.

Steve Lacy’s fellow former Hot 100 leader “Bad Habits” drops from No. 2 to No. 12, followed by three more Swift songs – as the entirety of Midnights‘ 13-song standard edition debuts in the top 15. “Mastermind” begins at No. 13, “Labyrinth” enters at No. 14 and “Sweet Nothing” starts at No. 15.
