Taylor Swift Song Creates A First Day Streaming Record

Katy Perry for the MTV Video Music

"Look What You Made Me Do" was played more than 8 million times on Friday.

Taylor Swift garnered 43.2 million views within 24-hours, proving that she intends on staying on top.

Swift also set a new benchmark with the song's lyric video, which attracted 19m views on its first day - more than double the previous record-holder, Something Just Like This by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay.

The pop star released her first new song in nearly three years, dropping the highly anticipated single Look What You Made Me Do and reigniting feuds in the process. Swift's new single sold around 200,000 downloads in the USA upon release, according to Billboard. Taylor addressed the backlash in a 2016 Vogue interview, calling the accusations "hurtful" and adding, "When we're all friends in fifteen years and raising our kids together, maybe somebody will look back and go, 'That was kind of ridiculous what we said about Taylor and her friends'". While the singer has recorded new music in between (remember her collab with Zayn Malik for "Fifty Shades Darker"?), fans have been eagerly awaiting her next album release, which comes out November 10.

Swift, 27, who has been absent from award shows and red carpet events in 2017 after highly publicized feuds with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry, did not attend the ceremony.

In another Facebook post before the launch, Tsai said FormoSat-5 was carrying Taiwanese technology as well as Taiwanese dream. An Earth-observation satellite for Taiwan's National Space Organization has been launched from California.

Swift portrays a darker, edgier figure in the video and there are many references or innuendos to her past conflicts with others.

Swift is one Target's best-selling artists of all time, Mark Tritton, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, said in the statement, and the magazine gives the retailer an exclusive collectible for her fans during the fall shopping season.

On Monday, it was also announced that Swift and Ticketmaster were partnering on a new service "Taylor Swift Tix powered by Ticketmaster Verified Fan", an arrangement that claims to help get tickets in the hands of fans instead of bots or scalpers.

On Saturday, the song was downloaded about 200,000 times - it took Ed Sheeran's Shape of You an entire week to get that many downloaded.
