Singer listed as one of Forbes’ World’s Billionaires

Taylor Swift reached billionaire status in 2024, becoming the first person to do so solely based on songwriting and performing. She was ranked at No. 14 on the billionaire list, with a net worth of $1.1 billion. The success of her Eras Tour in 2023 played a significant role in her reaching this milestone.

The Eras Tour became the first concert tour in history to earn more than $1 billion, selling an estimated 4.35 million tickets and bringing in an estimated $1.04 billion in gross revenue. In the U.S., the concerts added an estimated $4.3 billion to the country’s gross domestic product. Additionally, Swift released a concert film of the tour, which became the highest-grossing concert film ever in North America.

At the iHeartRadio Music Awards in 2024, Swift won artist of the year and thanked her fans for their support through a recorded video message. She emphasized that their choices to attend her concerts and listen to her music have contributed significantly to her success as a singer-songwriter and businesswoman alike.
