Look what you made the Billboard Hot 100 do. In the latest ranking, Taylor Swift's debut Reputation single "Look What You Made Me Do" took the No. 1 spot while breaking multiple records in the process. With its new spot at the top, "Look What You Made Me Do" halts Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" from moving beyond its historic 16-week lockdown.

In addition to giving Swift the distinction of landing the top spot on the Hot 100 with the first single from each of her last three studio albums, "Look What You Made Me Do" marks the first time in 2017 that a woman has hit No. 1. The single's first full-week streaming stats (84.4 million in the U.S.) is the highest streaming debut in 2017, as well as the highest streaming debut in history for a woman. The previous champ was Adele's ubiquitous "Hello" back in 2015. The track's first week sales (353,000) also mark the highest so far this year.

Elsewhere on the latest Hot 100, Logic entered the top 10 with his Alessia Cara and Khalid collab "1-800-273-8255" coming in at No. 9. Liam Payne is also now officially the third One Direction member to land a top 10 hit, as his Quavo-featuring single "Strip That Down" lands at No. 10.

Shortly after premiering the official video for "Look What You Made Me Do," Swift shared the second Reputation tease "…Ready for It?" So far, the critical response to the latest track has been more positive than that of its predecessor. Still, the divisive "Look What You Made Me Do" clearly isn't hurting.

Reputation, Swift's follow-up to her Grammy-winning 2014 album 1989, is due Nov. 10 via Big Machine. What we've heard of the 15-track album thus far has included co-writing credits from Jack Antonoff (Bleachers, Fun.), Right Said Fred, and pop master Max Martin (Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears).
