Taylor Swift’s latest musical offering, “The Tortured Poets Department,” has already left an indelible mark on the music industry, achieving a remarkable milestone less than 24 hours after its release. The 11th studio album by the 34-year-old songstress debuted to fervent anticipation from fans worldwide, catapulting it to the top of the charts with unprecedented speed. Within a mere 18 hours of its release, Spotify confirmed that “TTPD” had set a groundbreaking record, becoming the first album in the platform’s history to amass over 300 million streams in a single day.

Swift’s introspective and emotionally charged album didn’t just break records; it shattered them. Within just 12 hours of its release, “TTPD” surpassed the previous record for the most-streamed album in a single day in 2024, outpacing chart-toppers like Beyoncé’s “Cowboy Carter” and Ariana Grande’s “Eternal Sunshine.” Not stopping there, the album’s lead single, “Fortnight” featuring Post Malone, also etched its name in history as the most-streamed song in a single day on Spotify.

What’s even more astonishing is that the top three spots for the most-streamed albums in a single day in Spotify’s history are all occupied by Taylor Swift albums. Following closely behind “TTPD” are her 2022 release “Midnights” and the Taylor’s Version of her iconic 1989 album, released in October 2023. Swift further solidified her reign as the reigning queen of streaming platforms, retaining her title as the most-streamed artist in a single day on Spotify, a record she previously set with the release of the 1989 rerelease last year.

Swift’s announcement of “The Tortured Poets Department” came with a surprise revelation that the album is a double album, featuring an additional 15 songs. In an Instagram post, Swift described the album as “an anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions, and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time.” Drawing inspiration from her personal experiences, Swift delves into themes of heartbreak, self-reflection, and empowerment, offering listeners a raw and authentic glimpse into her innermost thoughts and emotions.
