Radio is notoriously difficult to break for any musician, whether new or established. It takes a lot of time and money to promote a tune to those who make the playlists at popular stations across the U.S., so it’s not common for an artist to see more than one single at a time reach different radio-focused lists published by Billboard.
Taylor Swift is no ordinary artist, which she proves once again this week with her performance on a number of radio rankings. The singer-songwriter has five different tracks charting, ranging styles, lengths and even blending the new with the old. 
Here’s a look at Swift’s radio dominance in the U.S. this week.
“Message In A Bottle (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault)”
Of all her current hits on Billboard radio charts, “Message In A Bottle” is by far the most popular. The tune is present on four different rankings, and it is quickly becoming one of the biggest successes from Red (Taylor’s Version). The poppy cut can be found on the all-style Radio Songs (No. 29), Pop Airplay (No. 19), Adult Contemporary (No. 18) and Adult Pop (No. 12) charts.
This kind of success isn’t unprecedented, as it makes sense for the track to perform well across several different pop radio lists, but it still points to the tune being a major win with programmers and audiences alike.
“I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor’s Version)”
New to the Adult Contemporary radio chart is “I Knew You Were Trouble (Taylor’s Version),” the slightly updated take on her previous smash single by nearly the same name. The tune blasts onto the list at No. 26, and it could very well continue to climb in the coming frames. The original edition peaked at No. 5 back in 2013.
“All Too Well (Taylor’s Version)”
In its third week on the Adult Pop Airplay chart, Taylor’s Version of “All Too Well” climbs to a new peak position. This frame, it’s up to No. 31, and its ascent probably isn’t done. The track is an unlikely radio win, as it’s longer than most tunes served to DJs (the regular edition is five and a half minutes, while the newest take is more than 10 minutes long), but there is enough demand to keep it spinning.
“I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) (ft. Chris Stapleton)”
Of all of Swift’s singles that are being played on radio right now in large enough quantities to make it to various Billboard charts, the long-titled “I Bet You Think About Me (Taylor’s Version) (From The Vault) (ft. Chris Stapleton)” is the one that has been around for the most weeks. The tune has lived on the Country Airplay ranking for eight frames, and it’s still present inside the top 40. The cut dips from No. 32 to No. 33 after previously lifting all the way to No. 23.
“Last Christmas”
Wham!’s “Last Christmas” is the seasonal smash nobody can stop, as many different acts have turned it into a hit. This week, Swift’s version of the decades-old cut bolts to No. 20 on the Holiday Airplay chart. Impressively, the singer released the tune in 2007, and yet fans are still interested in hearing it this time of year.
