Taylor Swift has had a phenomenal 2023, breaking records left, right, and center, and it looks like she’ll do it again this year.

Her song “Cruel Summer”, from the 2019 album Lover, became Swift’s first song to achieve more than 2 billion streams on Spotify.

According to Spotify fan account  Swiftie on X, formerly Twitter, “Cruel Summer” is also the 17th most-streamed song in Spotify history.

One fan account, Haunted Swiftie – TS Spotify, even went so far as to calculate when other Swift songs will surpass 2 billion streams on Spotify.

Swift’s success in music sales, combined with the record-breaking The Eras Tour, helped the singer enter Forbes’ list of billionaires for the first time.

The business newspaper writes that the 14-time Grammy winner achieved billionaire status in October, thanks in part to “an estimated $190 million in after-tax profits from her historic Eras tour.

He also wrote that Swift is “the first person [to become a billionaire]  solely through songwriting and performing.” 

The Eras Tour began in March 2023 and is a three-and-a-half-hour show featuring some of her career’s biggest hits, performed with 10 acts representing other stages in her life.

Adam Aron, CEO of AMC Theaters, credited Swift and Beyoncé with “literally” saving the theater chain’s financial fortunes.

The two women premiered their concert films exclusively at AMC in late 2023. Beyoncé highlighted her Renaissance world tour. “Despite the overall box office decline, in the fourth quarter year-over-year, AMC’s revenue increased 11.5%, and AMC’s adjusted EBITDA nearly tripled.

This entire increase is because we presented these things two films are playing in our theaters in the United States and internationally, Aron said during AMC Entertainment’s quarterly earnings call in February.
