Spotify record-breaking song “Taylor Swift: The Tortured Poets Society”

Taylor Swift‘s new album, The Tortured Poets Society, has broken the record for Spotify’s most-streamed in a single day, the platform said.

In a single day, the musical phenomenon also broke records for most streams from an artist.

On Friday, her much awaited album dropped, throwing Swifties worldwide into a frenzy.

It has thirty-one songs in which the megastar seems to be venting her resentment toward past partners and reveals her sadness.

As planned, the first 16 tracks were published at 5 a.m. UK time. However, 15 more tracks were released a few hours later, giving her admirers even more music to enjoy and sending music journalists into a tailspin.

Swift said the album was an anthology of new works reflecting “events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time – one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure”.

She continued, saying it was “now over” for her.

“The chapter boarded up and closed. After wounds have healed, there is nothing to settle scores on or exact revenge on,” she remarked. “Once we have spoken our saddest story, we can be free of it.”

Live on stage at the Grammy Awards in February, Swift revealed the release date of her eleventh studio album.

Among the songs on it is So Long, London, which many believe is a reference to her former boyfriend, British actor Joe Alwyn. Swift had previously relocated to London, where he was residing, and they had been together for six years.

But Daddy I Love Him, another song, is also believed to speak to the controversy that accompanied Swift’s rumored but unconfirmed affair with lead singer Matty Healy of The 1975, which occurred the previous year.

The album comes after the wildly popular Midnights, which in its first week of release in the US two years ago sold 1.6 million copies.

It went on to win album of the year at the Grammys, making Swift the first person to win the prize four times. It includes the hits Anti-Hero, Bejeweled, and Karma.

Her devoted fan base was taken aback by the news of her new album, which indicates that the star’s highly anticipated Eras tour, which takes place around Europe this summer, would have more content.

At the already over three-hour performances, Swift goes over each of her ten prior albums.

The release of her record follows a hectic year for the celebrity, who earlier this month was also named a billionaire by Forbes magazine.
