This only adds to a series of recent accolades, achievements, and accomplishments for the superstar. Lover exceeded 1 million in U.S. consumption in less than two weeks. Taylor held #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Songwriters Chart for three straight weeks anchored by “Lover,” “You Need To Calm Down” and “ME!” featuring Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco. She also emerged as #1 most-streamed female artist globally on Spotify and all 18 tracks from Taylor’s new album Lover charted on the Billboard’s Hot 100 upon release.
