It's only been a week since Taylor Swift's "Mine" hit radio, but the lead single from her new album, Speak Now, is already making a splash on the upcoming Billboard Hot 100 with a #3 debut.
According to Billboard, "Mine" makes chart history since Swift is only the second female artist in the history of the Hot 100 chart to debut multiple songs ("Mine" and "Today Was a Fairy Tale") in the top five during a one-year time frame. Mariah Carey also accomplished this feat with her hits "Fantasy" and "One Sweet Day" in 1995.
While "Mine" wasn't able to dethrone Eminem and Rihanna's "Love the Way You Lie" from the #1 spot, she is on top of the Hot Digital Songs chart with 297,000 in downloads.
Swift recorded a video message thanking country radio for all the support, saying, "Konnichiwa! I just wanted to say hi to everybody, all my friends on country radio. I'm about to play for 45,000 people in Japan. Wish me luck. Thank you for the first week. I love you."
Fans will get their first glimpse of Swift performing "Mine" during a pre-recorded performance on the upcoming TV special "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock," which airs September 1. Swift's highly anticipated new album is set to hit stores October 25.
