Toppling down 2018's elite Drake, the 'You Need to Calm Down' singer tops the annual list compiled by members of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift has been crowned the bestselling music artist in the world by members of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry.

The pop star has topped the annual list for the second time, five years after she received the IFPI honour in 2014.

"Taylor Swift is the epitome of a truly global star," IFPI CEO Frances Moore said in a statement. "She continues to grow as an artist and maintains an incredibly strong connection with her fan base, whilst continuing to evolve her sound with each album. It is a pleasure to be able to present her with the Global Recording Artist of the Year award for the second time."

The "Shake It Off" hitmaker beat out last year's top man Drake, who slipped to eighth place this year. Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, Billie Eilish and Queen made the top five, while Ariana Grande, BTS (Bangtan Boys), Lady GaGa and The Beatles make it into the top 10.
