In a move that surprised no one, Taylor Swift has once again taken the music industry by storm. On 27th October, the global superstar released ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version),’ the fourth album in her series of re-recordings. This move comes in the wake of an ongoing dispute with Scooter Braun, the former owner of her previous label, Big Machine Records.
Swift’s journey to repossess her music has been a hot topic in the industry, and with the release of ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version),’ she broke not one, but two records on Spotify.
The streaming giant tweeted, “She’s done it again.” It’s no surprise that she did do it again, as Taylor Swift became the most-streamed artist in a single day in Spotify’s history. ‘1989 (Taylor’s Version)’ became Spotify’s most-streamed album in a single day in 2023 so far. Swift had already held the record for the most-streamed album in a day with her 2022 release, ‘Midnights.’
