Taylor Swift’s ‘All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)’ Soars In at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Swift scores her eighth Hot 100 leader with the re-recording of her longtime fan favorite, updated for her new album, ‘Red (Taylor’s Version).’


Taylor Swift blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart with “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version).” The song, long considered a classic among her catalog, is from her new re-recorded LP, Red (Taylor’s Version), which concurrently launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

Swift first released the song on her 2012 album Red, with that version having spent a week on the Hot 100, at No. 80, on the ranking dated Nov. 10, 2012.

With the updated recording, Swift scores her eighth Hot 100 No. 1.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated Nov. 27) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (Nov. 23). For all chart news, you can follow @billboard and @billboardcharts on both Twitter and Instagram.


“All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” was released on Red (Taylor’s Version) Nov. 12 on Republic Records, via two versions on the set: its 5-minute, 29-second and 10-minute, 13-second versions, both of which are combined into one listing on Billboard‘s charts. (The song’s original 5-minute, 29-second 2012 version is tracked separately.)

As the song becomes the 1,132nd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 63-year history, and the 58th to enter on top, let’s dig deeper into its coronation.

Streams, airplay & sales: “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” begins with 54.4 million U.S. streams, 286,000 radio airplay audience impressions and 57,800 downloads sold in the Nov. 12-18 tracking week, according to MRC Data.

The song was on sale in its first frame via its 5-minute, 29-second and 10-minute, 13-second versions; clean and acoustic versions of the longer iteration; and its 9-minute, 58-second “Sad Girl Autumn Version – Recorded at Long Pond Studios” (all of which contribute to the title’s chart totals).

Meanwhile, the 14-minute, 56-second “All Too Well: The Short Film,” directed by Swift and starring Dylan O’Brien, Sadie Sink and Swift, and which serves as the song’s official video, premiered Nov. 12. Swift also performed a nearly 10-minute version of the song, against a backdrop of the film, on the Nov. 13 episode NBC’s Saturday Night Live (technically on Nov. 14, beginning at 12:13 a.m. ET … a time not unnoticed by intrepid, and calendar-conscious, Swifties).


‘There we are again …’: Swift scores her eighth Hot 100 leader. Here’s a recap:

“We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” three weeks at No. 1, beginning Sept. 1, 2012
“Shake It Off,” four weeks, beginning Sept. 6, 2014
“Blank Space,” seven weeks, beginning Nov. 29, 2014

Swift is the 20th artist, and seventh solo woman, in the Hot 100’s history with at least eight No. 1s. The Beatles lead all acts with 20 No. 1s, followed by Mariah Carey with 19.

30 career top 10s: “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” is also Swift’s 30th Hot 100 top 10, as she becomes just the sixth artist to reach the milestone.

Most Hot 100 Top 10s:
54, Drake
38, Madonna
34, The Beatles
31, Rihanna
30, Michael Jackson
30, Taylor Swift


No. 1 in streams & sales: “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” bounds in at No. 1 on both the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts. It’s Swift’s fifth leader on the former tally, pushing her past Cardi B for the most among women, and her record-extending 23rd No. 1 on the latter list.

As for the splits between the longer and shorter versions of the song over Nov. 12-18, streams and sales for the extended mixes dominated, accounting for 62% of all its clicks and 78% of all paid downloads (with the song’s 10-minute, 13-second and “Sad Girl Autumn” versions available for à la carte purchase in the tracking week only in Swift’s webstore).

(Perhaps unsurprisingly, given its length and no concentrated radio promotion, the song drew only a sampling of airplay in the tracking week, although four stations each played it, via a mix of durations, more than 10 times each: pop-formatted WPRO Providence, R.I. [16], WDJQ Canton, Ohio, WDJX Louisville, Ky. [12 each], and adult pop WWBX Boston [11].)
