Taylor Swift has achieved massive success in the music industry. The star signed a record deal with Republic Records three years ago and has since released five albums. All of them reached the top of the charts, sold millions of equivalent units and boosted Swift’s net worth. In fact, Forbes estimated that Swift would earn $14 million from her sister albums by the spring of 2021.
Swift started singing at a young age, performing in various venues and gaining recognition. She started singing in public events at the age of ten and was a regional winner of talent competitions at age 11. At age eleven, she performed ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ and won a talent contest. She then went on to open for Charlie Daniels at the Strausstown amphitheater.
In 2009, Swift won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Female Video. However, the rap star Ye, who was also involved in several other incidents at the award show, interrupted Swift’s speech and declared Beyonce’s video for “Single Ladies” as “the greatest music video of all time.” However, Beyonce invited Swift onstage to finish her speech and win Entertainer of the Year.
Swift continued her acting career by appearing as a voice in the film The Lorax (2012). She later released her fourth studio album, Red, which centered on the vagaries of young love and embraced a pop-rock sound. The album sold over 1.2 million copies in its first week, and the lead single, “Red,” became her first number-one single.
Taylor Swift has sold over 200 million records worldwide, making her one of the best-selling artists in the world. Her songs have topped the Hot 100, and she has toured the world to promote her music. In total, she has won 11 Grammy Awards and 58 Guinness World Records.
While Swift has achieved worldwide stardom, her music is rooted in the personal experiences of her author, Jody Rosen, describing her as a songwriting “savant.” Swift’s songs give a glimpse into her diary and connect her to an audience worldwide. Her albums and videos have earned her acclaim as a result of her eloquent lyrics.
Taylor Swift has also released a fragrance line. She launched Wonderstruck perfume in 2011, followed by Wonderstruck Enchanted in 2012. In 2013 she released Taylor by Taylor Swift Made of Starlight and Taylor by Taylor Swift – Not Just a Single Hit!, released in April 2021. Currently, Swift is still performing, dating and spending time with her fans.
Swift has partnered with several brands to promote her albums and tour. These brand deals may have helped Swift make money directly from her global tours. She has worked with Target, UPS, Qantas, and Papa John’s. In addition, Verizon and Comcast have sponsored her worldwide tours.
