The Grammy winner now has the top three most streamed albums in a single day in Spotify history - The Tortured Poets Department, Midnights, and 1989 (Taylor’s Version).

Before the album was released, Swift broke Spotify's record for the most pre-saved countdown page album in the streaming company's history.

It's no surprise that fans were glued to their listening devices after the anticipated release. The singer surprised fans by releasing 15 additional songs two hours after its midnight debut.

"It’s a 2am surprise: The Tortured Poets Department is a secret DOUBLE album. ✌️ I’d written so much tortured poetry in the past 2 years and wanted to share it all with you, so here’s the second installment of TTPD: The Anthology. 15 extra songs. And now the story isn’t mine anymore… it’s all yours. 🤍" announced Swift on Instagram.

The album — which fans have discovered to be inspired by her exes Matty Healy, Joe Alwyn, and her current boyfriend Travis Kelce — is Swift's most personal project to date.

"The Tortured Poets Department. An anthology of new works that reflect events, opinions and sentiments from a fleeting and fatalistic moment in time - one that was both sensational and sorrowful in equal measure. This period of the author’s life is now over, the chapter closed and boarded up," Swift shared on Instagram after its release.
