Taylor Swift named IFPI’s 2022 Global Recording Artist of the Year 

IT’S another win for Queen Tay!

Twelve-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift received another trophy to display in her overflowing award cabinet as she was recently hailed as one of the awardees of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).

The country-turned-pop singer won this year’s IFPI’s Global Recording Artist of the Year award. This is the third time she took home the title from the international trade group. She received the same honor in 2014 and 2019.

Last year, it was the KPop boy group BTS that won the award. 

Taylor also entered the top three under the same category in 2015, 2017, and 2020.

The New York-based singer-songwriter is the first to receive the honor three times, while BTS and Canadian singer-rapper Drake are the only artists to have collected the award more than once.
