Taylor Swift made her debut on Forbes’ yearly billionaires rankings.

Forbes reported Tuesday the pop star’s personal fortune amounted to an estimated $1.1 billion. That figure put her at No. 2,545 in the rankings.

In total, 2,781 people have a net worth of at least 10 figures, according to the magazine. The holdings of those individuals were reportedly worth a collective $14.2 trillion.

Swift achieved the status from the success of her music and concerts, according to Forbes.

She embarked on the international leg of her wildly successful Eras Tour that showcases songs from her large music catalog in August.

The world tour has brought her $190 million after taxes so far, according to the outlet.

In December, Pollstar reported the Eras Tour produced a gross of $1.04 billion over the 12 months ending Nov. 15. It suggested the production could wind up generating $2.165 billion total. 

The singer’s real estate also reportedly contributed to her $1.1 billion net worth.

Forbes and other outlets have associated her with the "three-comma club" since October.

Swift had numerous other wins in the past year or so, including the release of a record-setting concert film, becoming Time’s Person of the Year, and scoring two more Grammy awards.

In addition to Swift, over 260 others received spots on the Forbes ranking of global billionaires for the first time, according to the magazine.

Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH, reigned supreme out of all the world’s billionaires with his $233 billion net worth. He and two other familiar faces — Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos — formed the top three.

The three of them together are worth $622 billion, according to the outlet.

Forbes has released its annual list of the world's billionaires and in 2024, there are more people on the list than ever – and they're richer than ever.

There are 141 more billionaires in the world than last year, with 2,781 in total. Their combined worth equals $14.2 trillion – up by $2 trillion in 2023.

The 2024 list also broke records set in 2021, with 26 more billionaires on the list and their combined net worth up by $1.1 trillion.

Billionaires themselves are also wealthier, with two-thirds adding to their worth. The top 20 on the list gained the most, adding $700 billion to their combined worth since 2023. And the U.S. has a record 813 billionaires – the most of any country.

China has 473 billionaires and India has 200, which set a record for that country.

To tally their wealth, Forbes used stock prices and exchange rates from March 8, 2024.

Bernard Arnault and his family are at number one, with a net worth of $233 billion. Arnault is head of LVMH, a luxury fashion and cosmetics conglomerate in France. The family is usually in the top three of Forbes' wealthiest people in the world lists.

Elon Musk, once the richest person in the world, is No. 2 on the list, with a net worth of $195 billion. Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, also bought Twitter for $44 billion in 2022, renaming it X.

Musk owns an estimated 74% of the social media company, which is now worth nearly 70% less than he paid, Forbes estimates. This and other factors like low Tesla earnings have led to his net worth dipping below $200 billion several times over the last two years.

Coming in at No. 3 is Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who has a net worth of $195 billion. Then comes Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who is worth $177 billion.

Other famous names on the list include:

100. Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch and his family, worth $19.5 billion137. Dallas Cowboys General Manager and President Jerry Jones, worth $13.9 billion1,330. Jay-Z, worth $2.5 billion 1,851. Kim Kardashian, worth $1.7 billion 2,545. Taylor Swift, worth $1.1 billion

The wealthiest woman on the billionaires list comes in at No. 15: Francoise Bettencourt Meyers, the granddaughter of the founder of L'Oreal. As the richest woman in the world, she is worth $99.5 billion.

The top four wealthiest women after Bettencourt:

21. Alice Walton, Walmart founder Sam Walton's daughter, who is worth $72.3 billion23. Julia Koch and her three children, who inherited a stake in Koch Industries from her husband when he died are worth $64.3 billion35. Jacqueline Mars, who owns one-third of the candy and food company Mars, is worth $38.5 billion43. MacKenzie Scott, the ex-wife of Jeff Bezos, who is worth $35.6 billion
