Taylor Swift’s ‘Tortured Poets’ smashes streaming records, reaches billion listens in a week, and possibly reignites the Kim feud.

Taylor Swift’s latest drop, “The Tortured Poets Department,” has smashed Spotify records, surging past one billion streams in just a week. Released on April 19 with 16 tracks, Swift not only wowed fans with her 11th studio album but, two hours later, stoked the pop world fire with an extra 15-song anthology.

“The Tortured Poets Department” didn’t just break the internet; it set a Spotify record for the most-streamed album in one day, raking in over 300 million streams. The lead single “Fortnight,” featuring Post Malone, also snagged the title for most single-day streams for a single.

As Swift’s new album dominates Spotify, a subplot unfolds: Kim Kardashian’s Instagram followers dip by 100,000. The buzz? Swift’s track “thanK you aIMee,” with its conspicuous capital ‘K’, ‘I’, and ‘M’, fuels rumors of a reignited feud, turning the song’s chorus into a cryptic chant across Kardashian’s socials.
