Taylor Swift Helps Make Strides for Female Artists on the 'Billboard' Hot 100!

Taylor Swift Helps Make Strides for Female Artists on the 'Billboard' Hot 100!

Taylor Swift is once again continuing to dominate the Billboard Hot 100 with her number one song “Blank Space.”

With the 25-year-old entertainer’s run on the Hot 100, female singers have not allowed any men into the chart’s top spot for nineteen straight weeks! This record was first set back in 2005. In 2011, women dominated the charts for 45-straight weeks, so there’s still more work to be done to break any records!

Mark Ronson‘s “Uptown Funk!,” featuring Bruno Mars moved to slot number two on the charts and Hozier‘s “Take Me to Church” fell one spot to number three.

Rounding out the top are Meghan Trainor‘s songs “Lips Are Movin” and “All About That Bass,” in four and five, respectively.

    So what your saying is in 2011 women dominated the charts for longer so this is nothing new. ALL THIS WAS WAS PR FOR TAYLOR SWIFT.
    Blatant PR, which I keep seeing. Atleast put some effort in.

    Is it such a surprise that female artists dominate the pop charts? There a lot more teenage girls in female fanbases than there are in male fanbases. That means more money, more radio play….so, yea, it’s not a surprise. It’d be news if women were topping another industries (that doesn’t involve sequins).

    You should be showing a small collage of the female artists who helped make those strides, not just Taylor.

    Exactly she isn’t the only female who kicked ass in the industry this year.
