This time around, the ‘All Too Well’ songstress has been named the greatest pop star of the year.
Full story below…
Billboard has unleashed this year’s list of the greatest pop stars, where Swift sits at the #1 position. In their reasoning, they listed her several chart-topping albums, from ‘Evermore’ to ‘Red (Taylor’s Version),’ as well as her third Album of the Year win at the GRAMMY Awards. According to the publication:
“No other popular artist harnessed that type of fan energy with as much passion and imagination in 2021 as Swift, across albums and platforms, on projects that challenged the modern music industry while still succeeding wildly within it.”
“While other popular artists are rightfully celebrating award nominations and chart achievements, Swift can do both, while also credibly changing the way artists can approach creative ownership and sonic shifts.”
“Taylor Swift is making the type of moves within and outside of her music that elevate an artist from superstar to legend. “
This is not the first time that Swift has received this honor. She also did so in 2015 after the blockbuster success of her acclaimed ‘1989’ album.
Other artists featured are: Adele, Doja Cat, Dua Lipa, The Weeknd, & more.
