Taylor Swift: returns to the US chart at No 5 after the long-awaited release of her sixth album Reputation

Find out who are top of the pop songwriters, based on the week’s UK Singles Chart and Billboard Hot 100…

A final teaser in the form of Call It What You Want was released in the days leading up to Taylor Swift’s long awaited sixth studio album, Reputation. The collaboration between long-time co-writers Swift and Jack Antonoff – of Fun and Bleachers – debuted at No 27 this week on the Billboard Hot 100.

Though the recorded version was made with a music production controller, live kick, dx7 strings, and samples of Taylor’s voice, Swift opted acoustic during its live debut on SNL, proving that a pop song can stand on its own two feet.
