Taylor Swift can’t stop breaking records.
The pop superstar’s latest release, “1989 (Taylor’s Version),” sold 580,000 copies on vinyl between October 27 and November 1, making it the fastest-selling record of all time since the statistics were first collected this year 1991. This is according to data from Billboard cited data from Luminate.
The massive debut helps her extend her lead over Barbra Streisand for most No. 1 albums by a female artist. Swift now has 13 No. 1 records to Streisand’s 11.
But that’s not all Swift accomplished this year. These are all milestones that the 33-year-old singer achieved in 2023.
Become a billionaire
A Bloomberg analysis in late October found that Swift has officially joined the three-comma club.
Her net worth – calculated by estimating the value of her five homes, income from music sales, streaming, concert tickets and merchandise, and the value of her music catalog – is about $1.1 billion.
According to the report, this is the breakdown of her estimated net worth:
- Music catalog: 400 million dollars
- Ticket and merchandise sales: 370 million dollars
- Music streaming revenue: 120 million dollars
- Real estate portfolio: 110 million dollars
- Music fees: 80 million dollars

Swift’s Eras Tour is on track to become the highest-grossing tour of all time, generating a record $1 billion in sales.
The tour isn’t even halfway through, with dates extending through 2024. Swift is filling stadiums around the world, with some tickets selling for tens of thousands of dollars.
Blockbusters on the big screen
Swift’s dominance wasn’t just limited to the world of music: she also added movie theaters.
The Eras Tour concert film became the most successful domestic concert film of all time on its first weekend. The film has grossed more than $200 million worldwide since its October 13 release, and its $92.8 million debut was enough to set the second-highest opening weekend ever for a film released in October.
