LOS ANGELES – October 19, 2015 –(UPI) — Pop megastar Taylor Swift has been named the world’s highest-earning musician.

According to the Sunday Express. The “Shake it Off” singer has raked in $317.8 million this year thanks in part to her best-selling album 1989, world tour and various endorsement deals with brands like Sony and Diet Coke.

The huge payday means the 25-year-old banks over $1 million per day.

“Right now Taylor is untouchable,” said LA-based media analyst Mike Raia. “She is so far ahead of everyone else in the industry that she has become not only a powerhouse entertainer but also an important mover and shaker on the commercial side of the music business.”

Back in June, Swift along with her DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris, were named the world’s highest-paid celebrity couple of 2015 by Forbes magazine beating out reigning music power couple Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

Recently, Swift continued to dominante the music world with an industry leading six American Music Award nominations including Artist of the Year. The award show will be air live on ABC on Nov. 22.
