Taylor Swift has been named Global Recording Artist of the Year for a second time.

Her album Lover debuted at No. 1 in more than 10 territories last August.

The 30-year-old had previously taken home the title in 2014 for 1989, becoming the second performer after rapper Drake to win the honour twice.

Awarded by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), the title reflects an artist’s worldwide success across digital and physical music formats.

Ed Sheeran took second place for No.6 Collaborations Project, while Post Malone earned third place for Hollywood’s Bleeding.

Billie Eilish, Queen, Ariana Grande and BTS also featured in the top 10.
