*** No. 1 (5 weeks)*** "Blank Space" Taylor Swift
Greatest Gainer No. 14 "Thinking Out Loud" Ed Sheeran

Debut No. 39 "Style" Taylor Swift
As Taylor Swift tops Pop Songs for a fifth week with "Blank Space" and Adult Contemporary for a seventh frame with "Shake It Off," a third cut from 1989 debuts: "Style" enters Pop Songs at No. 39. Despite widespread speculation that the song is the set's third single, Republic Records, which is promoting it to radio, isn't yet confirming. On Dec. 28, Scott Borchetta, president/CEO of the Big Machine Label Group (which released 1989), was asked by a fan on Twitter, "What's Taylor's next single?" Borchetta promptly responded, "I'M LEANING TOWARDS STYLE… YOU?" (Radio seems clearly in agreement.)

Debut No. 32 "Living For Love" Madonna
The Queen of Pop returns to her queendom, as "Living for Love" launches at No. 32. It's her first entry since "Turn Up the Radio" in 2012, which became her record-extending 43rd No. 1 on the survey. "We knew we wanted to make a dance record. But you know, there's so many different levels of dance music and even different categories of house music," Madonna told Billboard last month of the song that she helmed with Diplo. "So, it was really like, what's the bass line gonna sound like? Is it gonna be really stripped down and sparse, or is it going to be loaded up? Is it gonna be Chicago house? Is it gonna be U.K. house? It's like, all over the place. Is it gonna be a little bit of one vocal line? Is it gonna be a whole choir singing? So, we were experimenting and trying out different things. They all sounded good, but at the end of the day, we wanted it to sound timeless also. Not just something of the moment."
