“It’s been no cruel summer for @taylorswift13 this year,” read Spotify’s post. “Congratulations on another track in the #BillionsClub.”

Swift’s “Anti-Hero,” from her album Midnights, also is on Spotify’s 1 billion-stream list, which features a total of 468 songs.

For her part, the singer took to her Instagram Story on Sunday morning recognizing the achievement.

“Summer just got a BILLION TIMES CRUELER,” she wrote. “Love you all so much for this.”

The news comes a few days after Swift broke another record as her ticket presales for her recently announced concert film, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour, brought in $26 million after the first day for AMC Theatres, setting a record for the biggest single-day advance ticket sales revenue for the mega-exhibitor.

Also last week, Swift became the first female artist in Spotify history to reach 100 million monthly listeners, trailing behind only The Weeknd.
