Taylor Swift: How She Became the World’s Most Streamed Singer

Taylor Swift stands as a towering icon in the music industry, a singer-songwriter whose early career was marked by country tunes before she skyrocketed to pop superstardom, becoming one of the best-selling artists of all time.

Her discography is a treasure trove of hit after hit, making her an unstoppable force in music. Her lyrics are genuine and carry something unique not found everywhere: the ability to create emotional connections that resonate over time. ‘Cosmopolitan’ magazine shared a playlist of must-have songs for true fans, highlighting tracks like ‘Out of the Woods’, ‘Fearless’, ‘Blank Space‘, ‘Champagne Problems’, ‘Love Story’, ‘OURS’, ‘Bad Blood’, among others.

So, how did she become the most listened-to singer? From a young age, Swift showed a natural talent for singing: writing her own songs and participating in various festivals. At 11, she traveled to Tennessee with her mother to record some melodies from her favorite artists. She was the youngest artist to win a Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Among her talents, she plays four instruments: guitar, banjo, ukulele, and piano.

Throughout her journey, like anyone else, she had to endure painful and public breakups. Many of her melodies were inspired by these relationships, yet she was scrutinized by the press for each one.

In an interview some time ago, she broke her silence, expressing that her male counterparts are not subject to the same criticism. “Other people say, ‘she just writes songs about her ex-boyfriends,’ and frankly, I think that’s a completely sexist perspective, nobody says that about Ed Sheeran or Bruno Mars,” she stated.

In 2023, Taylor Swift was Spotify’s most streamed singer. With over 26.100 billion streams since January 1, 2023, reported by ‘Los Angeles Times’.

Furthermore, her ‘The Eras Tour’ shattered unimaginable records. According to ‘Billboard’, this event could eclipse Elton John’s farewell ‘Yellow Brick Road Tour.

Not only that, but ‘Forbes’ magazine also honored her as one of the 100 most powerful women in the world, ranking her at number five.

Her rise is due to her being one of the most versatile artists around. She boasts about 14 Grammy Awards, an Emmy, 25 Billboard Music Awards, 40 American Music Awards, and more.
