Taylor Swift blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart with “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version).” The song, long considered a classic among her catalog, is from her new re-recorded LP, Red (Taylor’s Version), which concurrently launches at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
“All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” was released on Red (Taylor’s Version) Nov. 12 on Republic Records, via two versions on the set: its 5-minute, 29-second and 10-minute, 13-second versions, both of which are combined into one listing on Billboard‘s charts. (The song’s original 5-minute, 29-second 2012 version is tracked separately.)
As the song becomes the 1,132nd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 63-year history, and the 58th to enter on top, let’s dig deeper into its coronation.
Streams, airplay & sales: “All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)” begins with 54.4 million U.S. streams, 286,000 radio airplay audience impressions and 57,800 downloads sold in the Nov. 12-18 tracking week, according to MRC Data.
The song was on sale in its first frame via its 5-minute, 29-second and 10-minute, 13-second versions; clean and acoustic versions of the longer iteration; and its 9-minute, 58-second “Sad Girl Autumn Version – Recorded at Long Pond Studios” (all of which contribute to the title’s chart totals).
Meanwhile, the 14-minute, 56-second “All Too Well: The Short Film,” directed by Swift and starring Dylan O’Brien, Sadie Sink and Swift, and which serves as the song’s official video, premiered Nov. 12. Swift also performed a nearly 10-minute version of the song, against a backdrop of the film, on the Nov. 13 episode NBC’s Saturday Night Live (technically on Nov. 14, beginning at 12:13 a.m. ET … a time not unnoticed by intrepid, and calendar-conscious, Swifties).
