Taylor Swift’s “Anti-Hero” follows at #2, ahead of Sam Smith & Kim Petras’ “Unholy” at #3. Swift’s “Question…?” currently occupies the #4 position, and Meghan Trainor’s “Made You Look” closes out the Top 5 at #5.
Rihanna’s “Lift Me Up,” one of the week’s other major new releases, is presently at #6 on the chart. It should move higher in the coming hours.
