Taylor Swift Earns Biggest Streaming Year For A Female Artist

Published: Sunday 2nd Jan 2022 by Ryan

Another day, another record for Taylor Swift.

This time around, she has achieved a major feat on Spotify.

More details below…

In 2021, Swift earned a massive 9.1 billion streams on the music platform. In doing so, she set a record for the biggest streaming year for a female artist ever on the platform.

She was just shy of Bad Bunny‘s record for the most streams for any artist in any year ever when he achieved 10.1 billion streams in 2021.

Swift’s large streaming numbers were helped by the first installments of her re-recorded albums; ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’ and ‘Red (Taylor’s Version).’ The latter dominated Spotify upon its debut and broke several streaming records, including the most streamed female album on its debut day (as we reported here).

Moreover, ‘Red (Taylor’s Version)’ scored the second-largest streaming week for a female album, only Ariana Grande‘s ‘Thank U, Next’ album bests it with 307.1 million streams (as we reported here).

The news comes as anticipation builds for her rumored next re-recorded albums: ‘Speak Now’ and ‘1989.’

    That explains why Taylor ain’t the best female in TGJ coz most of y’all are dinosaurs who don’t know how to streaming music but listening to cd, cassettes or vinyl records

      As if. You soooooo pressed höe! Worry about that non-existent second album from Cardboard Box 🤣🤣🤣

  5. Oh dear Really? January 2, 2022

    Oh dear the jokes write themselves. All those streams and she’s Number 10 overall globally. None of her songs made it to the Top ten year end charts on Billboard. Good for her though and those streams.

  6. Hmm.. ok January 3, 2022

    The only way she can accomplish this is because she keeps churning out up to 3 albums a year. Clearly she has to full-fill her contractual obligations while she’s hot. Taylor obviously wants to prove a point which is why she’s doing all these re-recordings. One thing I know she will NEVER sell 3.4 million albums first week like Adele. Adele is now 6 weeks straight at #1. Adele had the best selling album of 2021 in PURE sales without STREAMS the only album to sell over 1 million copies in PURE Sales. Those are facts, to each their own though.
