(CTN News) – Taylor Swift, the reigning queen of the music industry, has once again proven her dominance by achieving yet another remarkable milestone.
As the top artist on Spotify in 2023, Taylor Swift amassed a staggering 26.1 billion streams throughout the year. This extraordinary feat not only solidifies her position as a global sensation but also translates into an impressive sum of approximately $97 million in royalties.
With her unparalleled talent and unwavering popularity, it comes as no surprise that Taylor Swift is set to surpass the $100 million mark solely from Spotify earnings.
With the inclusion of projected streams for this month, the overall figure is expected to surpass $100 million. Furthermore, the publication’s report suggests that publishing revenue will contribute significantly to this impressive amount, elevating it to $131 million.
It is worth noting that these figures solely pertain to Spotify, the dominant player in the streaming industry.
When considering Taylor Swift’s revenue across various music streaming platforms such as Apple Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube, is estimated to be approximately $160 million. However, when factoring in publishing revenue, this total climbs to nearly $200 million.
Last month, Spotify (together with Apple Music) declared Taylor Swift as the top artist of 2023, surpassing the three-time champion Bad Bunny, as well as the Weeknd, Drake, and Peso Pluma.
In response to Spotify’s recognition, Swift graciously released a highly anticipated track on various streaming platforms.
