Taylor Swift‘s “Cruel Summer” has turned into a pretty sweet autumn, as her fan-favorite Lover track rose to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart dated Oct. 28, 2023 — four years after its initial release.

In a video posted to Instagram on Monday (Oct. 23), Swift and her co-writer Jack Antonoff share their excitement over the accomplishment, talking over each other as they thank fans for all their support. “The song that we said was the best song, but we thought, ‘Oh, you know what? This will be our secret best song.’ That’s what we thought,” Antonoff said of “Cruel Summer,” before Swift chimes in: “We just wanted to say thank you so much for making ‘Cruel Summer’ a Hot 100 No. 1, and it’s not even summer anymore. It’s deep fall, I’m wearing a sweater.”

She concluded by sending love to Swifties, before letting out a scream. The post also features two film photos of the longtime musical collaborators in the studio, with Antonoff looking surprised while Swift holds up her index finger in celebration of her 10th No. 1 hit. “IT’S COOL,” she captioned the post, referencing lyrics from the song’s hook.

With “Cruel Summer,” Swift joins an elite club of artists with 10 or more No. 1s on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. “Cruel Summer” was released on Swift’s 2019 album Lover and was promoted as a proper single in June of this year. Helping surge streams for “Cruel Summer” were two new mixes that arrived on Oct. 18: a live version, recorded in Los Angeles during The Eras Tour, and an LP Giobbi remix. They followed the Oct. 13 premiere of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour film.
