Taylor Swift topped Billboard's year-end list with reputation. Taylor is the first artist in history to have the highest-ranking album with three different projects. Swift, 28, previously took the title with 2015's 1989 and 2009's Fearless.
While Swift's album reigned supreme, she wasn't the top artist of the year. That title went to Drake, who dominated several categories on Billboard's charts thanks largely to his hit-fill album, Scorpion. Several songs of the album, including "God's Plan," charted in the weekly Billboard 100.
Drake is the first rapper to be crowned top overall artist of the year since 2005. He's the third rapper in history to take the title. Only 50 Cent and Nelly previously achieved the accolade.
