The Weekend Countdown had a blank space, baby, and we wrote Taylor Swift‘s name.
The country darling turned pop princess broke a SiriusXM Hits 1 record over Memorial Day Weekend as New Romantics claimed the No. 1 spot, marking the first time an artist has topped the chart with six songs from one album.
The other songs to hit No. 1 are Shake It Off — which broke another record for staying there 12 times — Blank Space, Style, Bad Blood and Wildest Dreams.
New Romantics is actually a bonus track from her Grammy-winning fifth studio album, 1989, and its theme of female friendship amid the chaos of dating is seriously empowering. (Who hasn’t cried tears of mascara in the bathroom with your squad?)
To celebrate Tay, relive her SiriusXM Town Hall with The Morning Mash Up crew in the videos below. She gushed about collaborator and pal Jack Antonoff and admitted the lyrics for Blank Space (the source of our admittedly bad-pun lede) started out as a joke.
