Previously only available as bonus track on the physical editions of “folklore,” Taylor Swift’s “the lakes” made its digital debut Tuesday.

It predictably captured significant interest. “the lakes” soared to #1 on the US iTunes sales chart following its release, and it remains atop the all-genre listing as of press time at 12:55PM ET Tuesday.

“the lakes” seized the throne from Cardi B’s “WAP (featuring Megan Thee Stallion),” which is now #2 on the chart. Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later (featuring Lil Durk)” follows at #3.

Miley Cyrus’ “Midnight Sky” (#4) and Morgan Wallen’s “7 Summers” (#5) complete the Top 5.
