    Either Taylor or Drake are going to take the top spot, even though Adele is the one that truly deserves to be named the Artist of the Decade.

    Taylor swift seems more likely, but if albums are calculated as 10x singles, which should be, then Adele’s monstrous albums would…huhu. I need not say more. Drake is obviously trying to top this list with his uncontrolled album releases. Rihanna’s singles are more successful. Bruno Mars have been immensely successful on a low key and Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran have both had many very successful releases. Katy and Gaga had short but intense successes, while Eminem’s and Beyonce’s old albums still charted this decade! But Beyonce’s tours have grossed about $960m, both Taylor and Ed have grossed more than $900m too. I think it all depends on what is factored in and how they are weighted.

    Adele wins. If Taylor Swift does, it’s going to be depressing. I wish Justin Timberlake did better. The 20/20 Experience was near perfection.

    Mess most of you all don’t even know or having idea on how it works. It’s all about chart performance, not the sales. Otherwise what makes 21 at #1 and Fearless at #4 on all time BB200. Taylor and Drake are the only front runner for Artist of the Decade. The main question is how Billboard will regulate their formula? We have album, single, streaming, radio airplays, touring and probably social media, and so far only Taylor excels in all departments.

    It’s gonna be Taylor. Drake had his moment in the second half of the decade, but mostly with streaming. Streaming wasn’t counted as highly int he first half of the decade, so I think single and album sales will be more important.

    It all depends on how they weight things. After looking at the BB200, it looks like Adele, Drake and Taylor Swift. Drake’s and Taylor‘s consistency equalled Adele‘s dominant but short moments. Rihanna is very deep down the list. A look at the hot 100 we see a tight race between Drake and Rihanna for the top slot. Taylor behind Drake but not lightyears away like Adele.

    That would make Drake the runaway winner. But there is touring and the social50 chart. And we saw how much weight these charts hold.

    One Direction in 2014 year end:

    hot100: #17

    BB200: #3

    Touring: 290 Million $

    Overall: #1

     

    BTS in 2018 year end

    hot100: –

    BB200: #21

    Tour: 60 Million $

    Social50: #1

    Overall: #8

    So going forward by that, my top10 list

    #1 Taylor Swift

    #2 Drake

    #3 Adele

    #4 Rihanna

    #5 Bruno Mars

    #6 Justin Bieber

    #7 Katy Perry

    #8 Maroon 5

    #9 Ed Sheeran

    #10 Lady Gaga

    One thing that I realize is that Billboard give more weightage to pre-streaming era 2010-2014/2015. Both Uptown Funk and 21 locked for the song and album of the decade respectively.

    They just named Taylor the 8th greatest act of all time. And 5/7 of her albums are in the decade end 200 chart with “1989” in the #2 spot behind “21” by Adele.
    The “Elite” 10:
    The Beatles
    The Rolling Stones
    Elton John
    Mariah Carey
    Madonna
    Barbra Streisand
    Michael Jackson
