Williams last appeared on the Hot 100 in 2017 with the Paramore single “Hard Times.” She’s made the all-genre chart twice as a featured solo artist, including on the #2 hit “Airplanes” with B.o.B.

Fall Out Boy, meanwhile, just returned to the Hot 100 as a leading artist for the first time in seven years with their cover of Billy Joel‘s “We Didn’t Start the Fire.” They were last on the chart as a featured artist in 2019.

As for Swift, every one of the 22 songs off Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) is currently charting on the Hot 100 following the album’s July 7 release.
