Update 2: The alternate, “cabin in candlelight” version of Taylor Swift’s “cardigan” reached #1 on the US iTunes sales chart Thursday morning. It remains in the pinnacle position as of press time at 8:10AM ET.

The new edition of “cardigan” seized the throne from Blake Shelton’s “Happy Anywhere (featuring Gwen Stefani),” which had ruled the chart – and notably kept the original version of “cardigan” at bay – since Friday. The Blake Shelton-Gwen Stefani collaboration is now #2 on the all-genre listing.

The original version of “cardigan” follows at #3.

Maroon 5’s “Nobody’s Love” follows at #3, with the original “cardigan” at #4.

With release week for her “folklore” album reaching its conclusion, Taylor Swift shared a new version of radio single “cardigan.”

Dubbed the “cabin in candlelight” version, the new edition of the track is predictably making a splash on the US iTunes platform. As of press time at 1:55AM ET Thursday morning, it is #5 on the all-genre chart.
