Look, we all know Taylor Swift is Scrooge McDuck–levels of wealthy. But...guys. The precise amount of $$$ she’s raking in is seriously staggering—especially since we last took a look at her net worth. Since then, Taylor has released approximately one million new albums (including one she just dropped in October!!) and come out with a Netflix documentary, so it's no shock that her net worth has actually grown by more than $150 million LAST YEAR ALONE. So, yeah, while the rest of us were trying to decipher the meaning of that red scarf for literal years (!!), Taylor was busy making money. Let’s dig in.

Her 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 Evermorehave 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 $49 million in album sales. Oh, and let's just mention again that she legit dropped another album in October titled Midnights, which sold more than 1 million copies in its FIRST. WEEK. So, yeah. Taylor is making bank from her latest album, NBD.

Some fun facts for ya?

  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. Ca-su-al!

She Made a Sh*t 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. Like, 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 detail$, 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. It was all very casual!!!!!!!!!! Also, the entire thing was filmed by Netflix for an undisclosed sum rumored to be worth millions.

But let us not forget about her upcoming Eras tour, which literally broke Ticketmaster during presales. Forbes estimated that Tay could bring home an easy $620 million from the tour, while Billboard thought the tour's ticket sales alone would bring in roughly $591 million. Yeah, I'll give you a minute to process all this. Ofc, this only means that Tay's overall net worth will likely increase a goooood bit.

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. It’s fine! I feel totally fine about my income!

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, and Apple. These are private working relationships, so who knows exactly how much $$$ she took home, but it was presumably a LOT.

Plus, 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, no bigs. Business Insider estimates that all told, her property is worth $81 million.

So, What’s Taylor’s Total Net Worth?

According to Forbes as of August 2017, Taylor was worth $280 million. And the outlet reported that she made $185 million in 2019 alone (a pay raise of 131 percent from the $80 million she made in 2018). But today? Today, Tay-Tay is worth $570 million (up from $365 million in 2020) according to Forbes. Please excuse me while I go weep with happiness for her and sadness for myself.
