Taylor Swift’s New Era: The Pop Star Becomes A Billionaire

Billionaire (Taylor’s Version): Rules, what rules? Music’s new icon did it her way

With a record-breaking tour, a blockbuster movie and a shrewd mind for business, the 33-year-old singer is now worth an estimated $1.1 billion.



Taylor Swift’s Eras tour has evolved into an unprecedented financial phenomenon, grossing $780 million in ticket sales and poised to become the highest-grossing tour ever. This success has catapulted the 33-year-old pop queen into billionaire status, solely based on her music and performances. According to Forbes estimates, she is now worth over $1.1 billion, marking a $360 million increase from June.

A significant portion of this wealth surge stems from her lucrative summer, with earnings of around $190 million after taxes from the tour’s first leg and an additional $35 million from the initial screenings of Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour movie. Over $500 million of her fortune comes from music royalties and touring, while the rest is attributed to her music catalog’s increasing value. Additionally, she possesses $125 million in real estate, including six homes and a $10 million private plane.

Swift’s representatives did not respond to Forbes’ multiple requests for comment.


Amid a surge in celebrity billionaires, Taylor Swift stands out as the 15th celebrity on Forbes’ list to reach billionaire status, and the ninth to do so in the past three years. She joins a select group of four musicians who have achieved this milestone. Unlike some of her counterparts, Swift’s wealth is solely derived from her music career, distinguishing her from Jay-Z and Rihanna, whose business ventures contributed significantly to their net worth. However, Swift’s catalog, valued at nearly $500 million, aligns her with legends like Bruce Springsteen, whose catalog sales have also fetched substantial sums. In a strategic move, Swift regained control of her music catalog following a contentious dispute over its ownership. This decision, coupled with a lucrative distribution deal with Universal Music Group, solidifies her control and financial standing in the industry.

Taylor Swift’s catalog “is a testament to the exceptional reach and impact an artist can achieve. Her music not only transcends borders but also defies the challenges faced by creatives in the streaming era,” says Alex Heiche, the founder and CEO of Sound Royalties, speaking to Forbes.

Since releasing her 2019 album Lover, her U.S. album sales, including track sales and streaming equivalents, have totaled 37.3 million, according to data provided to Forbes by Luminate. “Given [her] sustained music industry dominance and her transformation into a global brand, it’s evident that the catalog’s value has substantially appreciated,” Heiche notes. He highlights that her original six-album master catalog was valued at $140 million by Braun’s team just five years ago.

Swift wrote nearly all of her top 50 Billboard chart hits, boosting her share of the publishing pot significantly. She shares credits with frequent collaborators like Jack Antonoff and Max Martin, who would receive a portion of any hypothetical sale.

Swift acknowledges her fans, the Swifties, as integral to her success. “You’re like a main character in why this tour is so special,” she expressed at her movie’s premiere. “And I can’t thank you enough for that.” She also gave them a shoutout in the trailer, recognizing their support.
