"Taylor Swift now holds this year’s sales mark with ‘Shake It Off’. Also, dating to her arrival on Sept. 23, 2006, with "Tim McGraw," Swift swipes her 60th Hot 100 hit. Only one female act has made more Hot 100 visits: Aretha Franklin, with 73."
"Who cares if it’s pop, country or polka music? The song is a smash. Taylor Swift is a superstar, a superstar who has done more for the expansion of the country music audience than anyone else before her or since."
