– Taylor Swift holds the number one position at the top of both the country and pop radio airplay charts this week - with two different singles from her 5X-Platinum plus album "Red."
Begin Again, the second song released to country radio from "Red," scores the number 1 position this week atop the Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country chart, reaching a U.S. airplay audience of more than 50 million radio listeners.
At Pop radio, Swift is currently in her 6th consecutive week at number 1 on Billboard's Mainstream Top 40 chart and in her 5th consecutive week at number 1 on the Mediabase Pop chart with I Knew You Were Trouble, her second global pop chart-topper from "Red."
The two songs each reached number 1 on both the all-genre and country iTunes singles sales charts. Both followed the release of the big hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.
Swift will kick off The RED Tour two weeks from today - March 13 in Omaha, Neb.
