Taylor's Album Sales Are Through the Roof

Not so surprisingly, Taylor’s studio albums—including Taylor Swift, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, 1989, Reputation, Lover, Folklore, and Evermore—have earned *tens of millions of dollars* worldwide. Per the Recording Industry Association of America, an organization that sounds like it knows what it’s talking about, she has earned $137.5 million in digital singles and $51 million in album sales. Oh, and now seems like a good time to mention that Midnights sold more than 1 million copies in its FIRST. WEEK. And, it may not come as a shock, but her 11th album The Tortured Poets Department might achieve the same feat, if not more.

Some other fun facts for you?

  1. Reputation was the best-selling album of 2017, reportedly making $1.9 million in just the first one and a half months.

  2. Lover was the only album of 2019 to sell 1 million “pure” copies (physical and digital album sales).

  3. Folklore was the first album to sell a million copies in 2020.

  4. More than a million copies of Evermore sold in its First. Damn. Week.

  5. Red (Taylor's Version) was Tay's 10th album to reach No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

  6. She has two of bestselling vinyl albums IN THE WORLD.

  7. Taylor made history when Midnights nabbed all top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 song list, becoming the first artist EVER to achieve the feat.

The Eras Tour Is Grossing Billions (BILLIONS)

According to recent estimates published on CNN, Taylor's Eras tour could gross $2.2 billion in just North American ticket sales, which would make it the highest grossing tour...ever. According to TIME, it's also projected to "generate close to $5 billion in consumer spending." In other words, the Eras tour is having a massive impact on the economy. Unclear what Taylor is taking home herself, but CBS said back in May that she could personally net $500 million or more. The Washington Post also estimated that Tay could earn upwards of $4.1 billion from the tour. Excuse me while I go cry in poor.

Meanwhile, Taylor's Eras Tour concert film broke AMC records in its first day, bringing in a reported $26 million. It's since earned $100 million in advance global ticket sales, and Variety reports that Tay and her team have pocketed $60 million of that. As of February 2024, the movie earned $261.6 million at the box office. HER POWER!

She Made a Ton on Her Reputation World Tour

Taylor wasn't able to tour for a few years due to the pandemic, but it’s cool because she made enough on her Reputation world tour to last a lifetime. The tour grossed $266.1 million in domestic revenue, making it the highest-grossing tour in United States history. Truly, what is life? No, seriously:

In case you want some details, when Taylor kicked off her tour in Phoenix in 2018, she set a new venue record for gross and attendance. THEN she hit up San Francisco and made a cool $14 million, before pocketing another $16.2 million in SoCal. Also, the entire thing was filmed by Netflix for an undisclosed sum rumored to be worth millions.

Speaking of Tours, Her 1989 Concerts Grossed $250 Million

What did you make in 2015? Because Taylor Swift took home $250 million (mostly in ticket sales) thanks to her 1989 world tour—and she was the top-grossing tour artist of that year.

And Then There Are Her Endorsements

Taylor Swift doesn’t really ~do~ social media sponcon, but she does have a history of working with brands, namely Keds, Diet Coke, Capital One, and Apple. These are private working relationships, so who knows exactly how much money she took home, but it was presumably a lot.

Let’s Not Forget Her Real Estate Portfolio

Not only does Taylor own an apartment in NYC, but she also owns the homes next door because why not? This epic real estate haul set her back a reported $50 million, but who wouldn’t want to avoid annoying neighbors by throwing lots of money at the problem? Also in Tay’s real estate portfolio: a $4 million check for a property she recently sold in Beverly Hills, a $2 million place in Nashville, plus that sweet vacation pad in Rhode Island where Tom Hiddleston once frolicked gleefully. (It’s worth $17 million.)

Business Insider estimates that all told, her property is worth $81 million, while Bloomberg says it's closer to $110 million.

So, What Is Taylor Swift’s Total Net Worth?

Back in August 2017, Forbes reported that Taylor was worth $280 million. Then in June 2023, Forbes revealed that her net worth had increased to $740 millionup from $365 million in 2020. And now, as of February 2024? Bloomberg reported that Taylor's net worth is officially $1.1 billion. Something Forbes went ahead and clarified in April, noting that she's the "first musician to do it based solely on songwriting and performing."


Please excuse me while I go weep with happiness for her and sadness for myself.
