Taylor Swift remains the queen of the Billboard Hot 100 with “Blank Space” logging its third week at #1. As if the 1989 diva hasn’t made enough chart history lately, her latest smash is the first single since Pharrell‘s “Happy” to sell more than 300,000 copies for three straight weeks. The man with the hat managed the feat for seven consecutive weeks, so she still has some way to go before beating that.

The rest of the top five remains largely static but there’s more action further down the chart. For starters, Selena Gomez soars from #20 to #6 with “The Heart Wants What It Wants”. That makes heartstring-tugging ballad her equal highest charting single. (“Come & Get It” peaked at #6 in 2013.) The only other new entry in the Top 10 is Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ retro-tastic “Uptown Funk”. It lands at an impressive #8. See the full Top 10 after the jump.
