Female artists have made a very impressive showing this week on BILLBOARD’s TOP TEN singles charts, capturing 8 of 10 spots. Leading off with Taylor Swift at #1 with SHAKE IT OFF, women were dominating the charts this week. Taylor Swift’s new single is a full-blown effort at pop music, shelving her country style for an attempt at capturing an even larger audience than the country music genre can generally pull in.
Meghan Trainor’s ALL ABOUT THAT BASS comes in at #2. Nicki Minaj’s controversial ANACONDA with a very hot video comes in at #3 this week. And Nicki Minaj returns backing up Jessie J. Ariana at #4 with BANG BANG, giving the popular star two top 10 singles.
