The song topped the Hot Digital Songs charts with sales of 155,000 copies in its first week, making it the second song from 1989 to reach number 1 on the Hot Digital Songs, becoming Swift’s ninth number one on that chart. Swift stood at rank three as the artist with the most number-one Digital Songs tying her with Eminem and surpassed Rihanna for the most number-one debuts. The song debuted at number 18 on the Billboard Hot 100. In its second week, the song sold 164,000 copies (up 5%) and moved up to number 13 on the Hot 100 being the Airplay Gainer. In its third week, the song sold 328,000 digital copies (up 100%), spurred by the release of its accompanying music video, and jumped to number one, becoming her third number one single and making Swift the first female artist to replace herself at number one (the number one song of the previous week was “Shake It Off”) and tenth overall among all artists. The song remained at number one on the chart for seven consecutive weeks making it Swift’s longest reign at number 1 besting her previous records of “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “Shake It Off” which peaked atop for three and four weeks respectively. It also helped set a record for the longest period that the number 1 spot on the Hot 100 had been held only by female musicians. On the chart issue dated January 17, 2015, it was pushed to the runner up spot as Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk!” topped the Hot 100. It reached its one-millionth sales mark in its fifth week. As of July 2019, “Blank Space” has sold 4. 6 million copies in the United States. The song stayed in the top ten for 17 weeks including the song’s seven week reign at the chart’s top spot, making it Swift’s second longest time lingering in the top ten, bested only by “Shake It Off”, which spent 24 weeks in the chart’s top ten. It ranked at number 7 on the 2015 Billboard Hot 100 Year-End Chart.
