Taylor Swifts New Album ‘Midnights’ Breaks Spotify Record After Released

American pop and country music singer-songwriter whose tales of young heartache achieved widespread success in the early 21st century, Taylor Swift has been out for less than 24 hours, and it has already broken a major record.

Midnights is officially a record-breaking album. On Friday, Spotify revealed that Taylor Swift’s new album had become the most-streamed project in a single day in the streaming service’s history.

Sharing Spotify’s tweet, Swift wrote, “How did I get this lucky, having you guys out here doing something this mind-blowing?! Like what even just happened??!?!”

Though Spotify did not immediately release the official streaming numbers, with the accomplishment, Swift beats out Bad Bunny’s previously held record after Un Verano Sin Ti garnered 183 million streams when it was released in May. (Before Benito, Drake broke the record with 176.8 million for Certified Lover Boy.)

Swift’s 13-track album was accompanied by a 3am Edition that was released just a few hours later, making a total of 20 songs.

“We lie awake in love and fear, in turmoil and in tears,” she wrote about the record in two paragraphs displayed across a promotional photo posted to social media. “We stare at walls and drink until they speak back. We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake.”

“This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams,” she continued. “The floors we pace and the demons we face. For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching – hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve… we’ll meet ourselves.”

Swifties can tune into NBC on Monday for Swift’s previously confirmed appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Then on Tuesday, Oct. 25, a second, unnamed Midnights music video will drop. And next Friday, Oct. 28, Swift will stop by the BBC for The Graham Norton Show in the U.K, per Rolling Stone.

Among the tracks featured on Midnights are single “Anti-Hero,” Lana Del Rey-featuring “Snow on the Beach,” and “Karma.” (She also followed up the 13-tracks standard album with a 3am Edition with seven additional songs.)

Leading up to Midnights dropping, Swift collaborated with the music streaming service to slowly release lyrics from the LP on massive billboards across the world, including Nashville, New York City, São Paulo, and London.
