Swift became the first artist to finish as the year-end top artist in each of three decades (the 2000s, the 10′s and 20′s) after taking the title in 2015 and 2009. She joins Adele as the only other artist to be the year-end top artist three times. Adele won in 2016, 1012, and 2011.

Swift has dominated the Billboard charts over the past 14 years from her first top-artist win in 2009 to the one this year, 2023, and is the longest of any act, Billboard reported. Previously she was tied with Usher for the longest span of year-end wins, with six years between her first and second, and Usher’s two wins in 1998 and 2004.

During 1923, she put 13 albums on the weekly Billboard 200 chart, including two that reached No. 1, her 2022 release Midnights and 2023′s Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). Midnights finished as the No. 2 title on the year-end Billboard 200 albums recap. Her 2019 release Lover is No. 9. Along with others in her catalog of albums, Lover saw a resurgence in popularity boosted by her huge career-spanning The Eras Tour.

Swift is the overall top female artist for a seventh year.
