Earlier Thursday, Headline Planet noted that Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” had been upgraded to 9x platinum in the United States. “State Of Grace” meanwhile received a gold certification.

The new RIAA awards brought Taylor Swift’s total number of certified US digital single units to 101 million; she became just the second artist to cross the 100 million threshold.

It was not, however, the only recent milestone achievement for Swift.

Thursday night, the official Taylor Nation Twitter account revealed that Swift’s 2014 album “1989” had crossed 10 million in worldwide sales.

As a thank-you to her fans for making the achievements happen — and perhaps a sign that Swift is warming up to the role of streaming in today’s world — the artist will be releasing her entire back catalog to all streaming services at midnight late Thursday/early Friday.

“All,” notably, includes Spotify.
