Taylor Swift made history with her October 21, 2022 release of Midnights when the top ten songs in Billboard's Hot 100 were all from her album.

Who held the record previously?

    This type of 'hit measurement' just hurts my OCD. New album comes out, fans listen to it a lot… all of it. This results in all tracks from it being considered as 'singles' & just skews the measurement. Back in the day, people would have had to go out & buy ten little bits of plastic to generate this data, not just stream it on spotify etc. Compare to the Beatles in 64, when they had the top five simultaneously. People had to go out & buy 5 individual pieces of plastic. Other tracks on the same album could not even be considered. They were not available individually.

Drake previously held the record with nine singles from Certified Lover Boy in September 2021.

Swift surpasses Drake, who logged nine of the Hot 100’s top 10 for a week in September 2021....

Plus, Midnights becomes the first album ever with as many as 10 Hot 100 top 10s, besting the nine from Drake’s Certified Lover Boy in 2021.
