65 0

Taylor Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, is causing quite a buzz. It’s only been a few days since the pop sensation released it, but already, the album has smashed through several records.

Billion Streams in a Week

Within just five days of its release, The Tortured Poets Department made history on Spotify. It became the first album ever to reach over one billion streams in a single week. To put that into perspective, that’s like every person in a small country listening to it multiple times!

The album’s debut on April 19 saw an incredible surge in streams on Spotify. In just one day, it racked up a staggering 300 million listens. That’s like the entire population of the United States tuning in and then some! Based on this momentum, it’s on track to surpass two million album-equivalent units in the official charts, something that hasn’t been seen since Adele’s smash hit “25” back in 2015.

One track in particular, “Fortnight,” a collaboration between Taylor Swift and Post Malone, stole the show on release day. It became the most streamed song in a single day in Spotify’s history. It’s like everyone had it on repeat!

Taylor Swift Become The Most Streamed Artist

With all these records being shattered, it’s no surprise that Taylor Swift herself became the most streamed artist in a single day in Spotify’s history. She’s got a knack for breaking records with every album she releases.

In a particularly fascinating achievement, The Tortured Poets Department sold a whopping 1.8 million copies of vinyl records in just five days in the US alone. That makes it the fourth highest-selling vinyl album in modern times! It’s creeping up on the record set by NSYNC’s “Celebrity” back in 2001. Those guys hold the second spot with “No Strings Attached” in 2000. And sitting at the top of the vinyl mountain is Adele.

Taylor Swift‘s music has touched the hearts of millions, and with The Tortured Poets Department, she’s not just breaking records; she’s creating history.
