In recent years, the singing sensation has given some of the biggest hits and taken the world by storm with her tunes. She keeps on creating records every now and then and has now achieved a monumental field on YouTube this time around. After wreaking havoc on the Billboard charts with her new album, Swift has created a new record on the video-streaming platform by crossing the 50 million subscribers mark.
The musician achieved the milestone on the heels of her of last month’s release of her 10th studio album, ‘Midnights’.

However, the musician’s recent feat is really amazing because it’s not easy to garner 50 million+ subscribers on YouTube.
The official Twitter account of YouTube celebrated the moment on the platform and congratulated the musician. It captioned the post as, “From her first upload :-) to the #TSAntiHeroChallenge and every era in between, congratulations to @taylorswift13 on reaching 50 million subscribers on YouTube.”
The ‘Cardigan’ hitmaker has become only the eighth musician in the world to cross the 50 million mark on YouTube. The other musicians to achieve that monumental feat are Blackpink (83 million), Bangtan TV, the official YT channel of BTS (71.7 million), Justin Bieber (70.5 million), Marshmello (56 million), Eminem (54.1 million), Ed Sheeran (52.6 million), and Ariana Grande (52 million).
Swifties were really happy after learning that their favorite artist has joined the league of elite musicians and congratulated the musician for such an extraordinary legacy.
