Taylor Swift has made her debut appearance on Forbes' billionaires list. Her reported net worth of $1.1 billion reportedly makes her the 2,547th richest person in the world.

"Swift is the first musician to make the ranks solely based on her songs and performances," Forbes wrote.

The 34-year-old singer's assets include $500 million amassed from royalties and touring. She earned $100 million from Spotify streams alone last year, Billboard reported. Swift also has another $125 million in real estate holdings, including a luxe apartment in New York City.

Swift's music — and seemingly only Swift's music — has returned to the social media platform as of this Thursday.

News of her billionaire status first broke last October following the massive success of her global Eras tour, which was the first tour to gross more than $1 billion.

This notoriety helped the pop star earn the Time Person of the Year award in 2023.

Her most recent LP Midnights helped Swift bring home two trophies at the 2024 Grammys, one for Album Of The Year and another for Best Pop Vocal Album.

Swift announced her upcoming record The Tortured Poets Department at the ceremony. It's due out on Friday, April 19.

To celebrate, SiriusXM has announced it is launching a channel dedicated entirely to the pop star.

For a limited time, Channel 13 (Taylor's Version) will only play music from Swift's 18-year career, "including all Taylor Versions, from the Vault tracks, live tracks, bonus tracks, and more."

The new channel launches on April 7, 13 days before the release of the upcoming album. On April 19, the channel will play The Tortured Poets Department in its entirety.

The nod to the number 13 references the Grammy winner's lucky connection to the number, which she explained to MTV News in 2009.

"I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first No. 1 song had a 13-second intro. Every time I've won an award I've been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter. Basically whenever a 13 comes up in my life, it's a good thing," Swift said.
