Taylor Swift Extends Record as Most Decorated Female in Billboard Music Award [#BBMAs] History

Published: Sunday 23rd May 2021 by Rashad

With 23 career wins to her credit, Taylor Swift entered the 2021 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) as the most decorated female act in the show’s history.

Nominated for four trophies at this year’s ceremony (Top Artist, Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and Top Female Artist), Swift stood the chance to extend that record – furthering the distance between herself and her nearest competitor, Adele (who boasts 18 wins to her credit to date).

Much to the delight of her fans (affectionately called #Swifties), look inside to see just how Taylor accomplished the feat.

Besting the competition in the Top Billboard 200 Artist and Top Female Artist categories (thanks to a year of gargantuan sales attached to her 2020 albums, ‘Folklore’ and ‘Evermore’), Swift pushed her career total to 25 wins – the most of any female artist in history.

Look below to see how her nearest competitors compare.

    Actually Janet has 34. Billboard needs to be ashamed for this!!

      Janet was the first female to ever win Top Female. Phil Collins was the first male to win Top Male. ❤️

      I love Janet, but she only has 11 Billboard awards.

      The Wikipedia graph incorrectly combined her 11 Billboard Awards with her 16 Billboard Magazine Year-End Number One Awards and her 7 Billboard/Tanqueray Sterling Music Video Awards. They are all separate awards. The Magazine Year-End awards and Billboard/Tagueray awards overlapped with the main Billboard awards and were discontinued because they generated confusion.

      Wikipedia is not a consistent source of info. Anyone can edit the information provided.

        You are correct Roberta l. Janet has 11 Billboard Music Awards this is the main Billboard Award Show. I’m surprised that she doesn’t have more though.

    Billboard has tried so hard to erase Janet’s history. She made history for winning 15 awards in one night! but the Web says Drake holds the record for 12 wins!

    now you’re saying taylor has the most but it is janet! even BB themselves say taylor, but no it’s janet janet janet! Her legacy matters!

    • Clarks0o00ñ May 24, 2021

      No she’s not.

      Not a power vocalist but She’s a very good song writer who knows how to write bops and that’s why shes successful.
      She plays instruments also

      Her dancing has also improved.

        Bops, lol Bops & Taylor do not belong in the same sentence. You mean catchy karaoke music.

    • James May 24, 2021

      She is truly overrated!! She’s a very average singer that puts me to 💤💤💤. I get bored easily with her music; as Aretha Franklin said Beautiful Gowns lol 😂🤣😂🤣. Taylor has a loyal fan base and good marketing which is why she has maintained her success. I just don’t get the hype!! Not my cup of tea but kudos to her.

    Taylor Swift is the definition of bland. It’s like eating a salad without the dressing.
