Taylor Swift’s album is the first to have 300 million Spotify streams per day

Taylor Swift’s latest album, The Tortured Poets Department, is the first album in Spotify history to reach more than 300 million streams in a single day.

Swift, 34, also became the most streamed artist in a single day on the platform when her record was released on April 19, according to the streaming service.

It comes after Swift became the first female artist on Spotify to reach 100 million monthly listeners in August 2023.

The Grammy winner’s highly anticipated eleventh studio album features collaborations with Florence And The Machine and Post Malone, and her song titles and lyrics seem to reference some of her former flames.

Fortnight, featuring American rapper and singer Post Malone, is Swift’s first single from the album and has become Spotify’s most streamed song in a single day.

Her music video for the song features an appearance from Dead Poets Society stars Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles, as well as her collaborator Post Malone.

Hours after the 16-track edition of her album was released, the American pop superstar announced an expanded version with 15 additional songs, titled The Anthology.

The Bad Blood singer, who is known for drawing inspiration from past relationships for her music, has placed So Long, London at number five on the album’s tracklist – the spot reserved for the most meaningful song on each of Swift’s plates.

The song is thought to offer new insight into her split from The Favorite actor Joe Alwyn after six years together.

Before the album’s release, fans had speculated whether the album title was a reference to star Alwyn.

In December 2022, Alwyn and Normal People star Paul Mescal revealed they had a WhatsApp group chat with Fleabag actor Andrew Scott called The Tortured Man Club.

Swift is known for writing songs about her ex-boyfriends, with previous flames Joe Jonas, Harry Styles, Jake Gyllenhaal and John Mayer among those who have been linked to some of her biggest hits.

Swift had announced the arrival of her latest record live on stage at the Grammy Awards in February
