Taylor Swift – Singer-Songwriter
Hundreds of fresh-faced twentysomethings move to New York every week, but few get to announce their arrival via the opening track on the bestselling album of the year. Swift’s “Welcome to New York” may have drawn the ire of some longtime Gothamites with its relentless positivity, but it’s already joined the canon of Big Apple anthems that stretches back from Bernstein to Sinatra and Jay Z. Having already been certified quadruple platinum, “1989” remains ensconced in the top 10 half a year after its release, and should continue to sell steadily as Swift leaves her fresh Manhattan digs to mount a global tour from May through December. Fortunately, her adopted home will still be waiting for her when she gets back.
