The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) just unveiled their Global Artist Chart for 2022.
The chart lists the top recording artists in the world based on an accumulative measure of digital and physical album sales, streaming, and more across all countries. This year, Taylor Swift tops the chart for the third time, making her the only artist to achieve such an unprecented feat in the award’s 10-year history.
Congratulations again to Taylor Swift, the winner of this year’s IFPI #GlobalArtistChart!
