In the six months from June 2016 to June 2017, Taylor made almost $50 million. Swift has earned more than $150 million over the course of many years through the sale of albums, tours, merchandise, and endorsement deals.
For instance, Taylor made $170 million between June 2015 and June 2016, partly due to the very successful 1989 world tour.
Taylor's empire made $185 million between June 2018 and June 2019, mostly as a result of her "Reputation" stadium tour, which brought in $266 million. Her earnings from June 2019 to June 2020 were $64 million.
Taylor has endorsed and collaborated with hundreds of businesses throughout the course of her career.
AT&T, CoverGirl, Verizon Wireless, Diet Coke, Keds, AirAsia, Qantas, Sony Electronics, and Target are a few of the businesses she deals with.
The portfolio of properties owned by Taylor Swift is extremely significant. She has real properties valued around $90 million spread throughout the country.
She moved into a $30 million property in September 2015 and now resides there in Los Angeles.
Purchasing a 12,000 square foot beachfront property in Rhode Island cost her $6.65 million in 2013.
She made the $3 million purchase of her downtown Nashville apartment when she was only 20 years old. She invested $2.5 million on a sizable estate in the Nashville suburbs in 2011.
Taylor has residences in New York City valued $50 million. Her involvement with Manhattan began in 2014 when she purchased a Tribeca penthouse, which she later converted into a 10-bedroom duplex that is now probably worth more than $20 million on its own.
She paid $12.5 million for the four-story, 100-year-old penthouse adjacent to the duplex in 2017. She invested $10 million on another unit in her previous building in February 2018.
Between 2006 and 2017, Taylor created six albums for Big Machine Records. We discovered that her relationship with Big Machine and its creator Scott Borchetta had been extremely tense when her contract with the firm came up for renewal in 2018.
Gaining ownership of her first six albums was Taylor's main objective in the negotiations.
She allegedly accepted a contract with Borchetta in which she would retain ownership of her previous albums for many years to come after releasing new ones.
Taylor would subsequently clarify that she did not want to be sold off to a new firm, even though she was aware that Borchetta was attempting to sell his business.
In the end, she made the decision to part ways with Big Machine and her back catalog in favor of signing a new, long-term contract with Republic Records, a division of Universal Music.
The revised agreement has two important clauses:
- Starting now, she is the sole owner of all of her master recordings.
- Her share of the revenue from the sale of her song is higher. Taylor will also get a sizable portion if Universal ever sells its $1 billion investment in Spotify.
Swift's first song, "Tim McGraw," which came before the release of her debut studio album with the same name, was released a year after she signed with Big Machine Records.
On the U.S. Billboard 200, Taylor Swift peaked at number five, but she claimed the top place on the U.S. Country Music chart.
"Our Song" and "Should've Said No," two number one smash singles from the album, were created.
Her first album has received more than four platinum certifications from the RIAA to date.
Fearless, Swift's second album, reached its peak at the top of the charts in Canada, New Zealand, the United States, and Billboard in the United States.
Six times in the USA alone, it has received the platinum certification. It also gave rise to the number-one songs "Love Story" and "You Belong with Me."
She has shared the stage alongside musicians including Faith Hill, Justin Bieber, and John Mayer.
23 American Music Awards, eleven Grammy Awards, and 23 Billboard Music Awards are just a few of Swift's numerous honors.
She has sold 150 million singles and more than 50 million albums as of this writing. Taylor participated on five global tours between 2009 and 2018 that brought in $943 million in revenue.
