Taylor Swift’s Single Takes Huge Fall From Radio’s Top 5
Taylor Swift’s song “Look What You Made Me Do” is making a steady fall from the charts, and her fans are doing whatever they can to spin this into a positive. If you’ll recall, when the song was initially released it reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was the only thing in the way of Cardi B making history with the reign of “Bodak Yellow.” Swift’s song was priced at 69 cents on iTunes in order to stay at the top, but Cardi fans rallied and got our Bronx Princess’ song to number one.
“Bodak Yellow” is still number 2 on the charts–behind Post Malone’s “Rockstar,” but “Look What You Made Me Do” has dropped to number 10. That’s not the biggest drop for the song, either. Chart Data reported that on the radio charts, Swift’s single dropped from being number 5 last week to now being number 20, which is the biggest fall from the top 5 in the chart’s entire history.
After recording a cheaper version of Beyonce’s “Lemonade” video for the single and bringing up situations with Kanye after almost a decade, us logical folk were even more done with her isht than we have been in the past. With such stark falls from charts it rises questions of either fan engagement or possible foul play with early sales, but we won’t know how much longer we have to deal with Taylor until her album drops and possibly fades off like her singles.
Possibly the funniest part of this fall is Swift’s fan accounts all trying to turn this chart data into something else, congratulating her on breaking another record. They also try to insult Beyonce and imply that the fall is her label’s fault for not advertising.
