Taylor Swift's song Anti-Hero has reached one billion streams on Spotify, becoming her fourth song to achieve the milestone. The synth-pop ode to self-loathing was released in October 2022 as the lead single from Swift's ninth studio album, Midnight.
Anti-Hero quickly became a fan favorite, reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and spending eight weeks at the top. The song has also been praised by critics, with many calling it one of Swift's best singles to date.
Swift took to Instagram to celebrate the achievement, writing, "Thanks a billion guys." She also thanked her fans for their continued support.
Anti-Hero is the latest in a string of successes for Swift. Her previous three songs to reach one billion streams on Spotify are Shake It Off, Blank Space, and I Don't Wanna Live Forever (with Zayn Malik).
With Anti-Hero, Swift joins an elite group of artists who have had four or more songs reach one billion streams on Spotify. Other members of the club include Rihanna, Drake, Ed Sheeran, and The Weeknd.
The achievement is a testament to Swift's enduring popularity and her ability to connect with her fans on a deep level. Anti-Hero is a powerful and personal song that speaks to the experiences of many people, and it's no surprise that it has resonated with so many listeners.
