And just like that, Taylor Swift has accomplished yet another massive music accomplishment – she’s been named as a ‘Top Global Music Seller of 2019.’




A report was issued by IFPI who, according to Variety, “Is the organization that speaks for the music industry around the world.”  As Variety also reports, “Universal Music Group’s dominance of the world market was reflected in eight of the year’s 10 bestselling artists, marking the first time one company ever had its artists take that many spots.”
