Taylor Swift Wins Artist of the Year at 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Taylor Swift took home the artist of the year, pop artist of the year and favorite tour style at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards on Monday night (April 1), and while the 34-year-old superstar was not at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre in person, she gave a heartfelt virtual acceptance speech.

“It’s completely up to you to choose how you spend your time, what concerts you want to go to, what music you want to make the soundtrack to your life,” Swift said in a video played during the ceremony. “To anyone who has included me in those choices, I’m so, so, so thankful for that. We have so many exciting things ahead of us. I’m continuing on with the tour and most importantly I have a brand new album called The Tortured Poets Department, which comes out on April 19.”

She concluded, “Thank you for voting for me for this incredible honor, artist of the year. I’m so blown away, I’m so thankful and I just can’t wait to keep having fun with you guys because we have a lot of exciting things coming up.”

The Tortured Poets Department will be Swift’s first album of new material since October 2022’s Midnights, which won album of the year and best pop vocal album at the 2024 Grammys. She also put out (Taylor’s Version) re-recordings of Speak Now and 1989 in 2023, as she embarked on her career-spanning Eras Tour.

The singer has already announced the track list, as well as three variants of the 16-track album, each featuring a different bonus track: “The Manuscript,” “The Bolter” and “The Albatross.” The Tortured Poets Department tracklist features two major collaborations: Post Malone, whose name is billed on track one, “Fortnight,” as well as Florence + The Machine on track eight, “Florida!!!”
