Taylor Swift has conjured up pop chart magic in America again by becoming the only act in Billboard Hot 100 history to land six top 10 debuts.
Her latest release, Speak Now, has entered the new countdown at eight and breaks a tie with Mariah Carey.

The country star’s first top 10 debut was Change two years ago.

Meanwhile, Bruno Mars’ Just the Way You Are scores a fourth week at the top of the Hot 100, and FarEast Movement and Nelly round out the new top three with Like A G6 and Just a Dream, respectively.

And the Glee cast has broken its own record for the most debuts on the chart – just a week after landing six new entries on the countdown, the stars of the hit show have placed seven on this week’s list.

The highest, a cover of the Beatles’ I Want to Hold Your Hand, debuts at 36.
