Taylor Swift Dethrones Despacito For Coveted Number One Spot

Celebs September 6, 2017 By Hugo

Taylor Swift has ended Despacito's 16-week reign at the top of the Billboard 100 chart. 

The infectious Luis Fonsi gained worldwide attention after Justin Bieber added a verse to the song and it became the song of the summer, soon after but it has now been dethroned by Taylor Swift's comeback song, Look What You Made Me Do.

The news comes only a week after Despacito equaled the record the Boyz II Men and Mariah Carrey track, "One Sweet Day" set for most consecutive weeks at number one in the chart's 59-year history. 

But displacing everyone's favorite song at the top of the charts wasn't the only good news for Tay-Tay.

She also broke streaming records everywhere, most notably smashing the Vevo record for the most views in one day, comfortably surpassing Adele's 27.7m views for her weepy ballad, "Hello" with six hours to spare. 

The track appears to take aim at Katy Perry and Kanye West, both of whom have criticised Swift for being insincere.

The long-awaited return of Taylor Swift comes three years after the release of her fifth album 1989, which would go on to become one of the best-selling albums of the decade and spawn a mammoth world tour.

Look What You Made Me Do is the debut track from Taylor Swift's upcoming sixth album, Bad Reputation, due November 10th.
