Swift could fill a museum just with the awards she has won in the U.S., including 10 Grammys, a record 32 American Music Awards, 23 Billboard Music Awards and 11 MTV Video Music Awards.
In addition, she has won dozens of awards around the world, including a Brit Award from the U.K., an ARIA Music Award from Australia, two Brave Otto Awards from Germany, three Telehit Awards from Mexico and six Hito Music Awards from Taiwan. Swift also was IFPI’s global recording artist of the year for both 2014 and 2019.
Swift recently put the deluxe edition of her second surprise album, evermore, on streaming services and it contains two bonus songs, “Right Where You Left Me” and “It’s Time To Go”.
Evermore arrived in December 2020 as the sister record to Swift’s earlier 2020 LP, Folklore, with both releases containing production from The National’s Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff, as well as guest vocals from Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon.
Among numerous rave reviews, NME gave evermore a five-star review, praising the record for its “experimentation, charm and musical shades”. Their review also stated, “On her second surprise album of the year, Swift pushes the boundaries of her indie reinvention, adding a bit of 1989-era gloss to produce a beacon of hope.”
