Taylor Swift ‘1989’ Tour

“You’re not going to see me playing the banjo,” Taylor Swift warned Rolling Stone at the outset of her 1989 world tour. On her Speak Now and Red tours, she claimed her turf at the crossroads of country, pop and classic arena rock. But for 1989, Swift made her bold move into full-on dance pop. She turned up the glitz with new material like “New Romantics” and “Blank Space” (“blatant pop music,” as she put it), but she didn’t compromise on her trademark emotional overshares, whether opening up in confessional interludes or torching up ballads (“Clean”).

  Taylor’s Music Returning to Spotify & Other Streaming Services Tonight
 

Taylor Swift is getting back together with a few of her famous exes, including Spotify and Pandora.

The pop star’s representative confirmed her full catalog will return to all streaming platforms Friday. Her official Instagram fan account, Taylor Nation, posted the news Thursday (June 8).

Swift’s five albums, including 1989, also will be available on Tidal, Amazon and other streaming platforms, her rep said in a statement.

“In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 Million Albums Worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 Million Song Certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalog available to all streaming services tonight at midnight,” the statement said.

Swift removed her music from Spotify in 2014 around the release of 1989, a Grammy-winning multi-hit pop album. No streaming service besides Apple Music was able to stream it. Swift allowed Apple to stream it after the music platform decided to pay artists royalties during its free three-month trial.

Swift’s hits include “Shake It Off,” ”We Are Never Getting Back Together” and “You Belong With Me.”

  Forbes Names Taylor #1 Highest Paid Woman in Music in 2016
 

Taylor was named #1 in highest paid woman in music, edging out Adele, Madonna, Rihanna, and Beyonce. Taylor’s $200 million haul from the 1989 Tour also broke previous all-time North American touring record, set by the Rolling Stones in 2005. She also had endorsements with Apple, Keds, Diet Coke, and recently inked a deal with AT&T.

One of the big singles on Taylor Swift’s 1989 is “Wildest Dreams”—a phrase that applies just as well to her recent earnings as the song. Swift pulled in $170 million over the past year, making her the highest-paid woman in music.

The bulk of her career-best haul came from her 1989 Tour, which grossed over a quarter of a billion dollars. More than $200 million of that came in North America, where Swift shattered the Rolling Stones’ record. She padded her total by moving more than 3 million album equivalents during our scoring period and shilling brands including Keds, Diet Coke and Apple.

“She has been building her fan base for years, and that fan base crosses multiple market segments,” says entertainment attorney Lori Landew of Fox Rothschild. “It’s this ability to appeal to younger and older audiences, and those in between, that makes Taylor such a sure bet with both concert promoters and brands who want to affiliate with her and with the community she has cultivated.”

  1989 Certified 6x Platinum in the United States
 

Taylor Swift’s “1989” earns a 6x platinum certification in the United States.

The reigning Grammy winner for Album of the Year has officially reached a new multi-platinum tier in the United States.

According to the RIAA, Taylor Swift’s “1989” reached 6x platinum status on October 19, 2016.

The 6x platinum certification confirms 6 million in US album units. Each unit is equal to 1 sale, 10 track sales or 1500 track streams.

Whereas many newly certified albums are generating the majority of their units from track sales and streams, it is worth noting that “1989” has sold roughly 6 million pure US copies in the United States. Its certification is therefore as much of a “pure sales award” as one should expect to see in 2016.
