According to Spotify, Taylor Swift‘s recently released album, The Tortured Poets Department, has shattered the record for most streams in a single day.

In a single day, the musical phenomenon also broke records for most streams from an artist.

On Friday, her much awaited album dropped, sending Swifties worldwide into a frenzy.

It has thirty-one songs in which the megastar seems to be venting her resentment toward past partners and reveals her sadness.

As planned, the first 16 tracks were released at 5 a.m. UK time. However, 15 more tracks were released a few hours later, giving her admirers even more music to enjoy and sending music journalists into a tailspin.

According to Swift, the album includes an assortment of recently composed pieces that capture “thoughts, feelings, and experiences from a brief and tragic period in time – one that was simultaneously joyous and depressing in equal measure.”

The album comes after the wildly popular Midnights, which in its first week of release in the US two years ago sold 1.6 million copies.

It went on to win album of the year at the Grammys, making Swift the first person to win the prize four times. It includes the hits Anti-Hero, Bejeweled, and Karma.

Her devoted fan base was taken aback by the news of her new album, which indicates that the star’s highly anticipated Eras tour, which takes place around Europe this summer, will have additional content.

At the already over three-hour concerts, Swift goes over each of her ten prior albums.

The release of her record follows a hectic year for the celebrity, who earlier this month was also named a billionaire by Forbes magazine.
