Forbes confirmed that Taylor Swift is the first artist to achieve billionaire status just from making music.

The financial news outlet said that the singer has an estimated fortune of $1.1 billion, entering the World’s Billionaires List for the first time, and ranking higher than Sam Altman, the creator of the AI chatbot ChatGPT on $ 1 billion.

Other billionaire artists, like Jay-Z and Rihanna, earned their wealth and the three-comma-club status in part through entertainment holdings and fashion brands among other interests.

Moreover, the 34-year-old singer staged the first billion-dollar tour ever with her Eras Tour boosting economies worldwide. She also has significant real estate properties in Nashville, Beverly Hills, New York, and a mansion in Rhode Island.
