Taylor Swift claims her sixth No. 1 and completes her second set of two straight leaders on Country Songs, as “Ours” piles 34.1 million audience impressions and steps 3-1 in its 17th chart week. Her slowest chart-topping climb was noted when previous leader “Sparks Fly” needed 19 weeks to peak last fall, and her quickest pace was a nine-week climb with “Love Story” nearly four years ago.
Swift clocked two previous leaders in 17 weeks, starting with her first No. 1 “Our Song” in 2007, and two years later with “You Belong with Me.” She achieved her first pair of back-to-back No. 1’s three months apart when “Story” followed “Should’ve Said No” in November 2008. Top audience contributors during the tracking week for “Ours” are WUSN Chicago (1.3 million impressions), KKGO Los Angeles (1.0 million), WYCD Detroit (768,000), KEEY Minneapolis (747,000) and WKLB Boston (717,000). In its 19th week on Country Digital Songs, “Ours” ranks at No. 13 with 30,000 downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
