Taylor Swift Album Hit 300 Million Streams at Spotify in First Day


Taylor Swift can’t quit breaking her own records. After Spotify revealed Friday that “The Tortured Poets Department” had become the first album in the DSP’s history to amass 200 million streams in a single day, the service updated that news early Saturday, to report that first-day streams actually surpassed 300 million, when all was said and done and counted.

“History made!” the company tweeted. “On April 19, 2024, Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department was the first album in Spotify history to have over 300M streams in a single day.”

It did not hurt in racking up these numbers that, just two hours after “The Tortured Poets Department” came out at the stroke of midnight ET, Swift announced to her sleepy fans that she was adding 15 tracks to the previously existing 16 for a 31-song deluxe digital edition.

Before the new album came out, Swift previously held the record for most streams in a single day, with the previous benchmarks set by 2022’s “Midnights” and 2023’s “1989 (Taylor’s Version).”

It had already been reported Friday that with “Poets,” Swift had become the most streamed artist in a single day in Spotify history. She previously broke her record as the most streamed artist in a single day when “1989 (Taylor’s Version)” dropped in October last year.

Before the album release, she had already set a slightly more mundane record, as “Poets” became the most pre-saved album on the Countdown Page in Spotify history just a day before it arrived.
