Pop Shop Podcast – Billboard
Written by GRB on 22/11/2023
It’s the most wonderful time of the year — when Billboard unveils the year-end charts! And this year, for the first time in a long time, the chart unveiling coincided with the 2023 Billboard Music Awards.
If you tuned in Sunday, you know that Morgan Wallen was our big winner, taking home 11 prizes, while Taylor Swift was the top female winner with 10 awards. Over on the year-end charts, which hit Billboard.com on Tuesday (Nov. 21), Wallen is our Top Billboard Hot 100 Artist and his “Last Night” is the Top Hot 100 Song, while Swift is the Top Artist — just like she was at the BBMAs.
But one of the most surprising outcomes of Sunday’s show was that Swift’s 10 wins and Drake‘s five wins put the two chart titans in a tie for the winningest artist of all time at the BBMAs, with their totals lifted to 39 apiece. On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Katie & Keith are reviewing this year’s awards and 2023 chart-toppers, and wondering: Will Taylor or Drake break the tie next year?
Also on the show, we’ve got chart news on how Stray Kids meet Alicia Keys in the Billboard 200 chart history books; how Jack Harlow, Tate McRae, Dua Lipa and Chris Stapleton all makes waves in the top 15 of the Hot 100; and how Mariah Carey jingles her way back to the Hot 100, as “All I Want for Christmas Is You” re-enters the chart, along with a few other festive favorites.
