As part of its annual year-end Wrapped rundown on November 29, Spotify announced that Taylor had racked up 26.1 billion streams globally on the service since January 1, topping the likes of Bad Bunny as well as The Weeknd, Drake and Peso Pluma.

This didn’t exactly come as a surprise considering the ongoing success of her 2022 album, Midnights, as well as two chart-topping re-recordings: Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) and 1989 (Taylor’s Version), the latter of which racked up a whopping 375.49 million on-demand official streams in its first week, as per the Billboard report.

Moreover, Taylor's year on Spotify tops any artist ever on the platform – now 15 years since launching. When Bad Bunny was announced as the top Wrapped artist in the prior three years, he had 18.5 billion streams in 2022, 9.1 billion in 2021 and 8.3 billion streams in 2020.
