The 'Love Story' star's new single also becomes longest running country chart topper for over 30 years.
Taylor Swift has reclaimed the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 this week with her new single 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together'.
The US star's hit also became the longest running from a country artist since Kenny Rogers in 1980.
The song was Taylor's first ever Billboard chart topper and spent two weeks at the summit before falling to second spot behind Flo Rida's 'Whistle' last week.
The rapper has now dropped to third place with Maroon 5's latest hit 'One More Night' up to the number two position.
Taylor has also claimed the highest debut on this week's chart after her charity single 'Ronan' shot straight inside the top 20 at number 16.
She performed the track for the first time at a recent charity benefit where she broke out into tears at the end of the performance.

Pink, Ellie Goulding and Alex Clare also feature in the top ten singles chart with Matchbox Twenty scoring the top album on the Billboard 200 chart.
Meanwhile, Taylor Swift's new album 'Red' will be release on 22nd October and also features a collaboration with British star Ed Sheeran.
