Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department Becomes First Album to Hit 1 Billion Spotify Streams in a Single Week 👇

Has anyone not listened to Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department?

After the 34-year-old pop superstar’s new album and its extended Anthology edition were released on April 19, Spotify announced the 31-song project marks the first album to reach 1 billion streams in a single week on the platform.

The Tortured Poets Department is also already Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single week — despite the fact that a full week hasn’t even passed since its release.

Swift’s latest Spotify record is not the only she’s broken as of late. Upon the album’s release, TTPD became the platform’s most-streamed album in a single day with 300 million, surpassing two of her own albums — Midnights and 1989 (Taylor’s Version) — which previously held the record.

Furthermore, the new album’s lead single “Fortnight” with Post Malone became the streamer’s most-streamed song in a single day on April 19.

Shortly before releasing TTPD, Swift announced “Fortnight” would be its first single and spoke about working with Malone, 28.

“I’ve been such a huge fan of Post because of the writer he is, his musical experimentation and those melodies he creates that just stick in your head forever,” she wrote on Instagram. “I got to witness that magic come to life firsthand when we worked together on Fortnight.”

“It’s once in a lifetime that someone like @taylorswift comes into this world,” he wrote in the caption. “I am floored by your heart and your mind, and I am beyond honored to have been asked to help you with your journey . I love you so much. Thank you Tay .”

Once the album was out in the world, Swift declared the “sensational and sorrowful” chapter of her life was “closed” in a social media post.

“The Tortured Poets Department. An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure. This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up,” she wrote.

“There is nothing to avenge, no scores to settle once wounds have healed. And upon further reflection, a good number of them turned out to be self-inflicted. This writer is of the firm belief that our tears become holy in the form of ink on a page. Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it. And then all that’s left behind is the tortured poetry.”
