Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” is #1 on Sales Chart, Up to #3 at Pop

There might be a “Blank Space” at the top of the digital single sales chart, but there is definitely no vacancy.

Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” once again rules the Billboard Digital Songs chart. According to the publication, the follow-up to “Shake it Off” and current Hot 100 chart-topper garnered an additional 342,000 paid downloads last week to convincingly rank as the best-selling single.

Not simply a hot seller, “Blank Space” is also enjoying explosive airplay gains at mainstream radio. Per the 12/3 rolling (unofficial) edition of Mediabase’s pop airplay chart, Swift’s single was the third-most-played song (behind only Maroon 5’s “Animals” and Ed Sheeran’s “Don’t”) during the seven days between November 26 and December 2.

It is meanwhile #7 at hot adult contemporary, #32 at rhythmic and #34 at adult contemporary.

Swift, whose “1989” album returns to #1 on this week’s Billboard 200, also has another track in the top ten of Billboard’s Digital Songs chart. Her “Shake it Off” claims the #10 position on the strength of 93,000 weekly sales.
