Taylor Swift’s four newly released songs make impacts on Billboard’s charts dated April 1.

Swift released four tracks March 17, timed to the kick-off that night of her The Eras Tour. Among them, “All of the Girls You Loved Before” launches at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking her 189th career entry on the chart, extending her record for the most among women.

Notably, Swift has now debuted at least one song on the Hot 100 each year since 2006, when she logged her first with “Tim McGraw,” on the chart dated that Sept. 23. Her uninterrupted 18-year run of debuts marks the longest active streak among all acts. (She made the cut in 2016 on the last day of that year: “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever [Fifty Shades Darker],” with Zayn, debuted that Dec. 31.)

Plus, Swift lifts her total to a record-extending 80 top 10s on the Digital Song Sales chart, while her “If This Was a Movie (Taylor’s Version)” premieres at No. 1 on Country Digital Song Sales. With the original having ruled in 2011, the composition is the first to have led the list via two versions.
