Even the pandemic couldn’t keep her down: That’s how Taylor Swift became the highest-paid artist
Along with the global epidemic, the year 2020 has had a noticeable impact on everyone's finances, including those of celebrities such as Taylor Swift.
During the last year, the entertainment industry was one of the hardest impacted, particularly by sectors involving public engagement. As a result of the stoppage of live events and postponements, many people have been unable to make their usual income. Surprisingly, the singer of "Lover" managed to stay on top.
Although her income level was lower than in previous years, Taylor Swift was one of the musicians with the biggest revenue, thanks to the various streaming platforms, with a profit of more than $23 million.
The industry as a whole generated an estimated $387 million, down two-thirds from 2019's total of $969 million.
Taylor Swift tops the list with nine million reproductions, nearly the same number in physical sales of the two albums she released in 2020, and 2.7 million in copyright.
The Grammy winner was the revenue leader in 2019 with a total of 167 million. However, at the time, the concerts were the most crucial factor in reaching that statistic.
Behind Taylor Swift is Post Malone with a gross of 19.7 million, and Celine Dion comes in third place who made 14.8 million dollars from an amazing tour held at the beginning of the year, before live shows were limited. Behind those mentioned are The Eagles, Billie Eilish and Drake.
