Taylor Swift Breaks Spotify Record with “The Tortured Poets Department” Album

Taylor Swift is once again in the spotlight as her latest double album, “The Tortured Poets Department,” storms its way to the top of Spotify’s charts. Within a mere 12 hours of its release, the 31-track masterpiece has secured the title of Spotify’s most streamed album in a single day for 2024, dethroning Beyoncé‘s “Cowboy Carter LP.”

Previously held by Beyoncé’s acclaimed album, which garnered 300.41 million on-demand official streams in its debut week, the record now belongs to Swift’s latest offering.

With collaborations featuring Florence + the Machine and Post Malone, alongside production contributions from Jack Antonoff and Aaron Dessner, “The Tortured Poets Department” marks Swift’s eleventh studio album and her first collection of new music since 2022’s “Midnights.”

Swift teased fans with the release of “Fortnight,” the album’s lead single featuring Post Malone, along with a promise of a music video set to premiere on Friday at 8 p.m. ET. The teaser clip, featuring Malone, was accompanied by an enigmatic caption from Swift, hinting at the album’s thematic depth.

While “The Tortured Poets Department” marks Swift’s return to the forefront of music, she hasn’t been idle. In between her latest release and “Midnights,” Swift has been steadily re-releasing her catalog under “Taylor’s Version.” Notably, both “Speak Now (Taylor’s Version)” and “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” soared to the top of the Billboard 200 charts, with the latter making history as Swift’s sixth album to debut with over one million pure sales in its first week.

Swift’s announcement of “The Tortured Poets Department” came during her triumphant moment at the 2024 Grammys, where she secured album of the year for a record-breaking fourth time with “Midnights.”
