Is Taylor Swift the best artist of all time?

Is Taylor Swift the best artist of all time? I sure think so. I have loved her since I was three years old. Let’s get into the real statistics of why Taylor Swift is the best artist to have lived!

Taylor Swift is the first woman to go platinum with four consecutive albums. You may be wondering what that means: the album has sold over a million copies or a single has sold over two million copies. In less than ten years, she has sold more than 30 million albums and won 10 Grammy Awards. That is extremely impressive compared to other artists in the industry. She also writes all of her own songs, which is different from many other artists who have other people write their songs and they just sing them. She pours her heart and soul into the songs and uses her music videos as a tool to portray her inner world. 

She also uses Easter eggs as a tool to connect with her fans and create a Swifty family. Easter eggs are little hints that she drops in album covers, Instagram posts, and music videos that give hints to her new future creations and ideas. When people catch on, it starts a domino effect of everyone’s excitement and more hints piece together to get a huge clue for something that she is coming out with. This is also different from other artists who don’t utilize this tool as much or as well as she does. 

Her songs hit all of the emotions. She has 10 original studio albums, 2 re-recorded studio albums, 4 extended plays, 3 live albums, and 19 other minor works. All of her different songs hit every emotion that humans experience. There’s a song for every circumstance and she understands feelings and writes them in a way that is unexplainable. Her songs are applicable to any age group, as some songs appeal to a younger audience with clean lyrics and some songs are explicit that appeal to an older audience. Her songs engage every audience that helps one get through hardships one might face, specifically in the love aspect or just life in general.

I hope Taylor Swift can reach you the way it reaches me! Her success on paper is almost as amazing as her success that reaches people in their hearts. Listen to her after you’re done reading!
