'Wildest Dreams' hits No. 1 on the airplay chart, becoming the fifth leader from '1989.' Previously, only Perry's 'Teenage Dream' generated five toppers on the tally.
Taylor Swift ties the record for most No. 1s from one album on Billboard's radio-based Adult Pop Songs airplay chart (dated Oct. 31), as "Wildest Dreams" rises 3-1. The song is the fifth No. 1 on the ranking from Swift's album 1989.
Before her latest leader on the Nielsen Music-measured Adult Pop Songs chart, the first four singles from 1989 all reigned: "Shake It Off" (for eight weeks); "Blank Space" (six); "Style" (two); and "Bad Blood" (three).
Only one album (counting only material included in an original release) had previously generated five No. 1s on Adult Pop Songs (which ranks weekly plays on 92 reporting stations): Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. The 2010 set yielded the Adult Pop Songs toppers "California Gurls" (nine weeks); the title track (four); "Firework" (five); "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" (three); and "The One That Got Away" (one).
