Article:
Taylor Swift’s career blossomed a little later in the UK than elsewhere (her first UK hit came four years after her US debut), but boy has she made up for it since.

In the last ten years, she’s notched up 23 Top 40 hits on the Official Singles Chart, eleven of which are Top 10s, with one going all the way to Number 1. Not only that, but she has three Number 1 albums under her belt too. Well played!

Her Top 100 biggest tracks have amounted to 15.7 million sales (when physical, downloads and streaming equivalent sales are combined) – and while she has a controversial history when it comes to streaming services she’s managed to rack up over 550 million plays across her singles alone.

She’s no slouch when it comes to albums either; shifting some 3.29 million across her five releases in the UK. She’s got quite the reputation, you could say (sorry). View Taylor Swift's full Official UK Chart history

And there's more to come! Taylor's new single ME!, a duet with Panic! At The Disco singer Brendon Urie, is out now – while we wait to see how that fares, Official Charts reveals her biggest hits so far, based on sales and streams.

First, a few highlights:

Style
An instant fan favourite on her 1989 album, Style somehow – somehow – wasn’t quite the hit most fans thought it would become, despite safe-bet hitmakers Max Martin and Shellback (and Taylor) at the helm.

The track reached Number 21 on the Official Singles Chart (it fared much better in the US where it peaked at 6), its chart chances hampered in part by that decision to keep her music off streaming services. As such, Style is Taylor’s tenth biggest single in the UK, with 393,000 combined sales, split between 303,000 downloads and 18.9m streams.



Look What You Made Me Do
Despite the huge successes of chart-topping albums Red and 1989, one thing that had eluded Taylor was a Number 1 hit, which she soon remedied with the lead single from Reputation. Helped along by an accompanying video packed with in-jokes and laden with references to her internet presence and numerous celebrity spats, Look What You Made Me Do went straight in at Number 1 in 2017, and because it was available to stream straightaway, it's racked up 60 million plays to be her second most streamed track of all time. When combined with other formats, its tally comes to 712,000, her seventh biggest single in total.



I Don't Wanna Live Forever
There are five collaborations in Taylor's Top 20, but this one, which came from the first Fifty Shades sequel, is the biggest. Proving that the celebrity circuit is smaller than you'd think, Taylor's duet partner on this moody number is Zayn, who, of course, was bandmates in One Direction with Taylor's ex Harry Styles. The slightly awks connection certainly didn't do the track any harm, and it peaked at Number 5 in February 2017, becoming her fifth biggest song overall, and her most streamed of all time (so far), with over 70 million listens – its combined sales stand at 846,000.

Love Story
Taylor’s breakout hit in the UK was very nearly a Number 1, peaking at 2 behind Kelly Clarkson’s My Life Would Suck Without You (what a time to be alive). Taylor has the last laugh though; her song has over 1,000,000 combined sales to date – 475,000 more than Kelly’s – and is her fourth biggest track.

As the title suggests, the song literally tells a love story, something Taylor is particularly good at. It’s sweet, enchanting, and once you've got the lyrics in your head, ridiculously catchy.



I Knew You Were Trouble
The second proper single from her 2012 album Red, there was much debate over who I Knew You Were Trouble was about, with fans arguing whether it was about ex John Mayer or then-future ex Harry Styles, who she had already met, but not started the full-on 'Haylor' relationship that would come later.

The song was a Taylor/Max Martin/Shellback affair and her first and only foray into the dubstep genre, albeit mildly. In fact, part of the song’s success was down to the wobbly bit in the song where Taylor yells “Oh! Oh!”, which sparked thousands of YouTube videos replacing her with everything between a wrestler and a goat. Good times.

I Knew You Were Trouble stands as Taylor's second biggest single in the UK, with just over 1.1 million downloads and streaming equivalent sales.

Shake It Off
Taylor didn’t leave anything to chance with the launch of her album 1989 , leading with the peppy, surefire hit Shake It Off. It was a big pop moment for Taylor, seen by many as confirmation her country days were behind her.

Fitting, then, that it’s also her biggest single in the UK, with 1.6 million combined sales in the UK, made up of 984,000 downloads and 55.7 million streams. Sadly, it just missed out on topping the Official Singles Chart, peaking at 2, behind Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass.



Check out the full rundown of Taylor's Top 20 biggest singles on the Official Chart below.

When it comes to albums, Taylor’s most recent collection 1989 finishes top of the sales pile with 1.24 million combined sales to date. 2012’s Red is second with a very respectable 681,700 sales, and her 2008’s Fearless is third on 603,000. Taylor's most recent album Reputation is fourth, on 363,000.

I always forget quite how big 'I Knew You Were Trouble' was wub.gif simpler times when the internet was polluted with goat memes.

'...Ready For It?' deserves so much more!

Those Style and I Knew You Were Trouble figures seem very off??

I can't see how either of them would outsell SIO, LWYMMD & IDWLF by that much, let alone outsell at all in the past 3 months.
