Fans were ecstatic to see Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department Bus in Mumbai

The Tortured Poets Department, Taylor Swift’s most recent studio album, made waves when it was released on April 19. It broke many records en route to becoming the first album in history to receive over a billion Spotify plays. You may want to reconsider if you believe that it is only a worldwide phenomenon unrelated to India’s “desis.” Fans in Mumbai got a surprise recently when they saw BEST (Brihanmumbai Electricity Supply and Transport Undertaking) buses decked up like the cover image of the album. Social media users started sharing photos of these buses, especially on X (now Twitter).

The picture caption reads, “The buses belonging to the Tortured Poets Department have been spotted in Mumbai.” After being shared on May 15, the post gained popularity swiftly, receiving over 3,72,00 views. Indian fans expressed their excitement in particular, saying that they hoped Taylor Swift would add Mumbai to her Eras Tour.

“Indian swifties, be like: finally, it’s our time to shine,” said one fan in jest, while another cried, “Okay, I need to step outside my house because WHAT?”

There was much conjecture about Mumbai serving as a possible location for the Eras Tour. As one fan put it, “Perhaps Mumbai is one of the tour’s venues.” Mumbai will experience another earthquake caused by humans if this occurs.

Amazon Music also chimed in, writing, “Swifties heading to work vibing to ‘I Can Do It With A Broken Heart’.” in response to the article.

The 16-track stand-alone CD, The Tortured Poets Department, was first made available for purchase. But only two hours later, Swift shocked fans by releasing a second book called The Anthology, which included fifteen more songs.

Unquestionably, the album is a success since it debuted at the top of the UK charts and had the most first-week sales in seven years. With this accomplishment, Taylor Swift ties Madonna for the record for most female artists with number-one albums in the United Kingdom. Furthermore, according to the BBC, The Tortured Poets Department broke the record for the most streams across all platforms in the United States and became the first album to achieve one billion Spotify plays in a single week.

The forthcoming Taylor Swift Eras Tour is much anticipated by fans. It will begin in Stockholm on May 17 with three nights at the Friends Arena.
