1 1

Olivia Rodrigo’s magical moment continues as she smashes Taylor Swiift’s record with eight songs off her debut album, “Sour”, featuring in the top 10 of Billboard’s Streaming Charts. The youngster isn’t a stranger to breaking records and she’s done it again.

Taylor Swift held the record for the most songs in the top 10 at one time by a woman since the chart began in 2013 when six of her songs featured back in August 2020.

In the chart’s history, Olivia Rodrigo’s eight songs also put her alongside artists like Juice WRLD, The Weeknd, Lil Uzi Vert, and Post Malone as the third-most simultaneous top 10s.

The only ones to have surpassed that are rappers J. Cole and Drake who have nine each.

“Good 4 U”, which debuted on 29 May on the charts, leads the way after spending its second week at No. 1 on Streaming Songs. It also became the second-highest single-week stream count for any song in 2021, according to MRC Data.

That’s only behind the record set by Olivia Rodrigo with her debut single “Drivers License”, and the biggest second-week number of the year. “Deja Vu” follows closely at No. 2, while “Traitor” is No. 3.

BTS’ “Butter” (No. 4) and Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” featuring SZA (No. 8) are the only non-Olivia Rodrigo songs in the top 10.

She is also the first artist in history to chart three songs at the same time as three of her songs made it to the top 10 songs on Billboard Hot 100.
