“Bad Blood,” the latest single from Taylor Swift, only stayed at No. 1 for a week. Taylor Swift has achieved three No. 1 hits from her 1989 album. It is no small success to have a number one hit single, and for Swift, it is one of several from the same album.
Swift released a successful video for “Bad Blood,” featuring Kendrick Lamar.
With an all-star cast of friends, Swift promoted the new single with loads of fun. It did reach No. 1, but according to Billboard, that spot dropped within the week. Wiz Khalifa replaced Swift’s hit with his song, “See You Again.”
With a great marketing strategy, the music video full of famous friends created social media buzz. With the new single reaching the top, Swift can claim to be on her way to having one of the most successful albums in sales and singles.
According to Forbes, reaching No. 1 is the most important thing. It’s not really relevant how long a song stays at the top, just based on the sheer volume of musical releases and pop fans processing the new music. It’s more significant that Swift has achieved another top hit.
A few days ago, Headline Planet assessed “Bad Blood” to have a new positive score of 42.4 percent, according to the Mediabase/Critical Mass Media listener callout report.
By comparison, “Blank Space” achieved a 62 percent rating and “Shake It Off” had 45.6 percent, making “Bad Blood” the lowest scoring single for Swift. However, these numbers are clearly positive since they helped the singer reach another No. 1 Billboard Top 100 hit.
The song also hit No. 1 in Australia.
The Inquisitr recently reported on her feud with Katy Perry. Noting the two singers may have a rumored, upcoming sing-off of sorts, it is clear Swift is enjoying staying focused on her music.
