Taylor Swift named Billboard magazine's Top Artist

Superstar Taylor Swift has been named Billboard magazine's Top Artist of 2015.

Editors at the publication picked the artist because of her mega-successful tour, hit singles and her 1989 album, which also earned the Album of the Year title.


This is the second time Swift has been honored by the magazine - in 2009, she was named Top Artist following the success of her second album, Fearless. Adele remains the only female artist to claim the title two years in a row for 2011 and 2012.


In addition to Swift's honor, Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk was named Top Song and Fetty Wap the Top New Artist.
