In celebration of selling 10 million “1989” albums and reaching 100 million in certified US digital single units, Taylor Swift released her discography — including her 2014 album “1989” — to all streaming services.

They may be a few years old, but several of her songs made a big opening day splash on Spotify in the United States.

“Blank Space,” a Grammy-nominated single from “1989,” was the best-performing track. It amassed what reports as 297K US streams Friday.

The leader among Swift songs, “Blank Space” was #82 on the overall daily US chart.

Fellow “1989” single (and fellow Grammy nominee) “Shake It Off” followed at #90 with 277K streams.

Other Swift songs in the Top 200 include “Wildest Dreams” (#115, 248K), “Style” (#118, 246K), “Bad Blood” (#127, 237K), “Out Of The Woods” (#178, 194K), “Love Story” (#179, 194K), “You Belong With Me” (#183, 190K), “Welcome To New York” (#189, 188K), and “I Knew You Were Trouble” (#196, 184K).

All but “Love Story,” “You Belong With Me,” and “I Knew You Were Trouble” appear on Swift’s “1989.” That skew makes sense — “1989” is Swift’s most recent album and, notably, had never previously been available on Spotify.
