This award highlights Taylor’s influence on pop culture and music industry. Since Michael Jackson’s award in 1990, this is only the second time BMI has given out this prestigious honor to an artist. The ceremony was held on May 10th, at Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Update: Taylor won several more awards tonight! She also won Songwriter of the Year in recognition of her most-played pop songs from 1989: Bad Blood, Blank Space, Style, and Wildest Dreams.
Taylor Swift added two more honors — the first-ever Taylor Swift Award and Pop Songwriter of the Year — to her crowded shelf of industry accolades at the 64th annual BMI Pop Awards last evening (May 10). Held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., the ceremony honored the writers and publishers of the most-performed pop songs during the past year.
Swift’s eponymous award, in recognition of her creative and artistic talent and influence, marked only the second time in BMI’s 76-year history that the organization has presented an award in an artist’s name.
Michael Jackson was the first to achieve that honor in 1990. Swift also claimed four of the year’s most-performed songs to earn pop songwriter of the year kudos. “Bad Blood,” “Blank Space,” “Style” and “Wildest Dreams” are all featured on the artist’s Billboard 200 No. 1 album 1989.
On September 30, 2015, Taylor Swift celebrated her record-breaking attendance exhibit at the GRAMMY Museum, with an intimate performance at the Clive Davis Theater. Watch Taylor perform a solo acoustic version of “Blank Space” from “1989,” a GRAMMY Album of the Year nominee.
Taylor Swift’s “1989” now boasts a worldwide sales total in excess of 9 million.
Taylor Swift’s Grammy-nominated album “1989” has reached another milestone.
The album, which first emerged on October 27, 2014, recently crossed the 9 million worldwide sales mark.
While the majority — just over 5.6 million — of those sales were generated in the United States, the album’s international performance is nothing at which to sneeze.
The worldwide sales achievement serves as a testament to both the album’s immense resonance and Taylor Swift’s considerable star power.
“1989” is a Grammy nominee for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. Single “Blank Space” is up for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance, while the Kendrick Lamar remix of its “Bad Blood” is a nominee for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Music Video.
It’s that time of the year again! The 58th Annual Grammy nominations were announced this morning! Taylor is nominated for seven awards including: Song of the Year (Blank Space), Record of the Year (Blank Space) and Best Music Video (Bad Blood). She’s also up for the highest honor of the night, Album of the Year (1989)!

Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” and “Bad Blood” receive new multi-platinum certifications from the RIAA.
Over the past few weeks, three singles from Taylor Swift’s blockbuster “1989” earned upgraded multi-platinum certifications.
The first wave of certifications came on August 25. That date brought news that Swift’s second “1989” single “Blank Space” went 7x platinum in the US. Fourth single “Bad Blood” went 3X platinum on the same date.
The RIAA then issued two more digital certifications on September 15. Swift’s lead “1989” single “Shake It Off” received an 8X platinum certification, while “Bad Blood” was upgraded to 4X platinum.
Swift’s first four “1989” singles — the aforementioned, plus the 2x platinum “Style” — are all multi-platinum. Current single “Wildest Dreams” is currently gold and surely on track for a platinum — if not a multi-platinum — certification in the near future.
Under the terms of the RIAA’s digital singles program, each platinum certification confirms a US unit total of 1 million. One unit is equal to one paid download or 100 streams.
The pop stars’ new singles earn high debuts on the chart. Plus, new music from Rita Ora, Robin Thicke and the return of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis!
Taylor Swift claims her ninth top 10 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks as “Wildest Dreams” starts its chart run at No. 3 on the survey dated Aug. 22. The track’s huge bow owes to a Swift tweet announcing “Dreams” as the fifth single from her current album, 1989.
Good news for the new release – all of Swift’s previous 1989 singles have ascended to No. 1 on Top Tracks: “Shake It Off” (one week), “Blank Space” (three weeks), “Style” (one week) and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Bad Blood” remix (two weeks).
Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday).
Lana’s ‘High’ Start: Just below Swift, Lana Del Rey grabs a No. 4 bow for “High by the Beach,” a new cut from her upcoming album, Honeymoon. The alt-pop singer shared her new track on Aug. 10, and the official audio clip has swelled to more than 2.2 million global views on YouTube. “Beach” becomes her third top 10 entry on Top Tracks, following “Brooklyn Baby” (No. 9) and “Honeymoon” (No. 1, one week).
Taylor is nominated for nine MTV Video Music Awards this year! She received nominations in major categories such as Video of The Year and Best Female Video for Bad Blood and Blank Space, respectively. Voting is now open for those in the US at MTV.com and will remain open until August 13th. The 2015 VMAs will take place on August 30th in Los Angeles, California. Congratulations, Taylor!
