It may not have arrived until late on the fifth day of the July 19-25 sales and streaming tracking period, but Taylor Swift’s “The Archer” still generated an ample amount of activity.

It amassed enough interest, in fact, to earn a spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

“The Archer” starts at #69 on this week’s edition of the listing, which ranks songs from all genres based on sales, streams and radio airplay. The track, a pre-release cut from Swift’s forthcoming album “Lover,” marks the Grammy-winning artist’s 80th career Hot 100 entry.

“The Archer” fared particularly well on the sales front, debuting at #6 on the Digital Song Sales Chart despite its late-week release.
