Yahoo.com unveiled the list of the best-selling album artists of the 2000s earlier today and Taylor has claimed the top spot by selling more albums in the U.S. than any other artist who has emerged since January 2000! The release of 1989 enabled Taylor to surpass Linkin Park by .2 million. You can read more about it below.

Taylor Swift (25.2 million)

The country-turned-pop superstar emerged in October 2006 with her eponymous debut album. Her best-seller is her sophomore album, 2008’s Fearless (6.9 million). It logged 11 weeks at #1 and was the best-selling album of 2009. Swift has had four consecutive #1 albums which have spent a combined total of 27 weeks at #1. She has won seven Grammys, including Album of the Year for Fearless.

  Single Sales: Taylor, Meghan Trainor Claim Two Top Tens Each
 

Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainor are responsible for four of the ten best-selling singles. Mark Ronson and Mr Probz enter the mix this week.

The top ten for this week’s Billboard Digital Songs chart is official, and it offers 40% of its real estate to Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainor.

Courtesy “Blank Space” (302,000 weekly paid downloads) and “Shake it Off” (83,000), Swift claims the #1 and #8 positions, respectively. Trainor grabs #4 via “All About That Bass” (106,000) and #10 thanks to “Lips are Movin” (69,000).

Still impressive, Swift’s presence is actually weaker than that of last week. Her two singles were both in the top five on the previous week’s Digital Songs chart.

Special in that it gives Trainor a second top ten presence, “Lips are Movin” is not the only song to enter that portion of the single sales chart this week. Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars)” vaults to #3 with 111,000 weekly sales, while Mr Probz’ “Waves” notches its first top ten position (#9) via 71,000.

  Taylor’s ‘1989’ No. 1 for Third Week on Billboard 200
 

Taylor Swift‘s 1989 album spends a third consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, making it only the second album to spend three weeks atop the list in 2014. Only the Frozen soundtrack, which racked 13 nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1, spent longer at the top.

1989 sold 312,000 copies in the week ending Nov. 16 — down just 22 percent in its third frame — according to Nielsen SoundScan. It’s the first album to sell more than 300,000 copies in its first three weeks since Beyonce’s self-titled effort in December 2013. Beyonce debuted at No. 1 with 617,000 (from only three days of sales), then spent a second (374,000) and third week (310,000) at No. 1.

1989’s total sales now stand at 2 million. It continues to rank as 2014’s second-largest-selling album, behind the Frozen soundtrack (3.25 million). They are the only two albums to sell a million copies in 2014.

In total, Swift has spent 27 cumulative weeks at No. 1 with her four chart-topping albums. That puts her ahead of Barbra Streisand on the list of women with the most weeks at No. 1. Among leading ladies, Whitney Houston has the most (46 weeks), followed by Mariah Carey (30), Swift (27) and Streisand (26).
