Every time Taylor Swift has released an album it’s instantly made its way to our playlists. Midnights became one of our favorite albums of 2022 and possibly 2023. 👀The Swifties were counting down the seconds until its release and the whole album including “Anti-Hero” & “Lavender Haze” entered the charts with a bang. After the scandal with Scooter Braun, is Taylor Swift making even more money? Here’s everything you need to know about her impressive net worth.
Taylor Swift’s reputation
Taylor Swift rose to fame after her self-titled debut album was released in 2006. The album featured the hit single “Tim McGraw”, which peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and gave Swift a broader audience than she had previously had as a country music artist.
After her second album, Fearless, was released in 2008, it brought her even more success with several singles reaching the top 10 of the Hot 100 chart and winning four Grammy Awards. Her third album Speak Now made Swift an international superstar, with five singles topping the Billboard chart and winning two more Grammys.
In 2012, Red became her first best-selling album in dozens of countries around the world, paving the way for further success with 1989 (2014), Reputation (2017), and Lover (2019).
Allegedly, someone close to the megastar musician said, “Taylor Swift is a major corporation.” Like a major corporation, Swift has a major pull within the culture & a net worth that soars up into the clouds. The Grammy winner is even CEO of her own management company, demonstrating her ability to be both an artist & businesswoman.
Taylor Swift’s ability to manage money could possibly be attributed to the fact that both her parents worked in the financial sector. Her father Scott Swift was a wealth management advisor & stockbroker, while her mother Andrea sold mutual funds. Taylor’s massive net worth is probably partially due to her parents’ guidance.
Yet it’s not just her family that’s helped Swift attain such a large net worth. The thirty-two-year-old singer-songwriter has cultivated a strong fandom since she began her career as a teenager. Taylor was one of the artists in the vanguard of using social media to connect with her audience. Now there are whole swaths of the web dedicated to her.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Swift is worth $400 million and makes $150 million per year from her music and various brand deals. Taylor Swift has many brand sponsorships and deals (CoverGirl, Keds, Diet Coke, and Capital One) which collectively add to her overall net worth. She also has an album promotion deal with Target, and has worked with brands like AT&T, Walmart, Apple Music, and XFinity.
StyleCaster reports that “Swift’s net worth also includes her massive real estate portfolio. So far, she owns eight properties, including her $29 million estate in Beverly Hills, her $20 million duplex in New York City, and her $17 million mansion in Rhode Island. According to Business Insider, she also owns two private jets worth $40 million and $58 million each.”
After releasing her 10th album Midnights, it should come as no surprise that Taylor Swift’s net worth is only growing. Allegedly, with its large amount of sales, Midnights has now passed 2 million pure sales in the United States alone. As a result of this, the album now becomes the first album this decade to reach the milestone.
