LOS ANGELES. – We’re getting used to Taylor Swift smashing it in the music world, and now she’s hit another milestone.

Spotify have announced that she’s the first female artist to get more than 100 million streams in just one month.

The news comes after Taylor released her third re-recorded album in July – Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) – which hit the top of the US and UK charts.

It also made her the first woman to have four albums in the US top 10 album chart at the same time – only the third artist EVER to do that.

Although she’s setting female-first records, it puts Taylor second overall.

The record for the most monthly listeners on the app is held by The Weeknd with more than 110 million – a record he set in February 2023.

And UK pop star Ed Sheeran is down in fourth with a record of 77 million.

Swift and her two private jets have spent the last several months crisscrossing the US throughout the first leg of her colossal Eras Tour.

The singer has two multi-million dollar planes: a Dassault Falcon 7X, registered N621MM under Island Jet Inc.

And a Dassault Falcon 900, registered N898TS under SATA LLC.

Both companies are registered to the same address as Taylor Swift Productions in Nashville, according to Tennessee Secretary of State documents.

The Dassault 900 jet can carry up to 12 passengers and requires a two-person crew.

The Dassault 7X has a slightly larger cabin, carrying up to 16 passengers, and is designed for longer flights.

Swift appears to have bought both aircraft several years ago. The planes were registered to her holding companies in 2009 and 2018, respectively, according to FAA data.

Today, a new Dassault 7X is estimated to cost about $54 million, while a new Dassault 900 has a list price of $44 million, according to Business Jet Traveler.

Swift’s jets have taken a combined 103 flights so far this year – 86 of which have taken place since massive Eras tour kicked off in March.

A spokesperson for Swift told Insider the singer has worked to offset her jets’ carbon emissions.

“Before the tour kicked off in March of 2023, Taylor purchased more than double the carbon credits needed to offset all tour travel,” the spokesperson said. Insider was not able to independently verify this.

In 2023, carbon credits cost between $40 to $80 per metric ton of CO2, according to Terrapass, a company that provides carbon offsetting products.

Earlier this year, The Washington Post reported that some experts believe the majority of carbon credit programs overestimate their emission reductions.

There is no way of knowing the jets’ passengers for any of the flights.

Both jets appear to have primarily followed locations along the singer’s tour route, which kicked off in Glendale, Arizona, on March 17. BBC/The Insider
