Taylor Swift breaks Don McLean’s 49-year-old chart record

Taylor Swift, who is not poor in records, has set another record. This time it’s their new new ten minute single “All Too Well”. It made it to the top of the US charts, making it the longest song of all time, which landed there at number 1.

Taylor Swift breaks a record that has lasted for 49 years: In 1972 it was Don McLean who was number one with his eight-minute and 42-second hit “American Pie”.

Swift shared a tweet on the Billboard charts on Instagram and said he was thrilled. She provided the screenshots with voiceovers of herself in which she said “What the hell ?!” in different voices:

“All Too Well” is featured twice on Taylor Swift’s new album RED (TAYLOR’S VERSION), once as “Taylor’s Version” and once as “10 Minute Version”. Most recently, Swift recorded another new version of the song with The National’s Aaron Dessner under the name “Sad Girl Autumn”. This is the fifth reinterpretation of the song. It’s also the fourth, most recently released in a week.

Her latest album, RED (TAYLOR’S VERSION), was released on November 11, 2021. On the same day, Swift performed on “Saturday Night Live”. She also appeared in a sketch with Pete Davidson on the popular show. It was announced earlier this week that their new album broke a Spotify streaming record. With over 90 million streams on the first day, she had the most streams by a female artist on Spotify during that period.
