NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Taylor Swift's brand-new single, "Mine," debuted this week at #1 on the Billboard Hot Digital Songs chart and at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. The single was rush-released last week to radio and iTunes after an on-line leak, and the chart debuts came after only 4 1/2 days of availability.
"Mine" reached #1 on the iTunes All-genre Singles Chart and #1 on the iTunes Country Singles Chart within 6 hours of its release, and sold in excess of 297,000 downloads in just 4 days.
The single also reached #1 on iTunes in Canada the day of its release. "Mine" is the lead single from Taylor's upcoming third studio album, Speak Now, set for release on October 25th on Big Machine Records.
With the historic debut of "Mine," Taylor joins Mariah Carey as the only female artists in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 Chart to debut more than one single in the Top 5 in a calendar year. Earlier this year Taylor's "Today Was A Fairytale" entered the chart at #2.
"Mine" set a new record for first-week adds (106) on the Country Aircheck radio chart (powered by Mediabase). Even with only a half of week of airplay, the song debuted at #26 on the Billboard Top Country Songs Chart, making it a Hot Shot Debut, Greatest Gainer and a Breaker Debut. In addition, "Mine" debuted at #32 on the USA Today/ Country Aircheck Chart (powered by Mediabase).
Also this week, Taylor took home four surfboard trophies from the Teen Choice Awards – for Choice Female Country Artist, Choice Country Album, Choice Country Song and Choice Breakout Actress. The boards will need to be shipped to her – she had to miss the show, as she was in Japan for two shows at the Summer Sonic festival.
Taylor is currently nominated for a 2010 MTV VMA Award for Best Female Video, and is slated to perform on NBC's NFL Kickoff Concert on September 9th and ABC's Country's Night to Rock on September 1st.
Starting on August 20th, Speak Now will be available for special pre-sale on the site www.SpeakNow13.com.
