This isn’t the first time Taylor Swift has broken records, or set them. Swift’s Reputation tour was the highest-grossing tour in U.S. history at the time, she is the first artist in history to have claimed all the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 song list, and she was ranked third on Forbes’ list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women Under 40 in 2022.45

From making music history to amassing a sprawling real estate empire, here’s how Taylor Swift made her millions.


Swift has primarily earned her millions from a successful music career, which she began at age 16 with her eponymous debut album. Since then, her 10 studio albums have sold millions of copies both physical and digital.

In 2020, her albums Evermore and Folklore made up the bulk of her $23.8 million revenue, with Billboard estimating that the singer took home 46% of the royalties from sales and streaming, since she owned the masters.6 The publishing rights that Swift owns for her previous albums are worth an estimated $200 million according to Forbes.1
