US Charts: Billboard's Best Of 2011

Billboard has finally unveiled their year-end charts for 2011, and it comes to no surprise that women dominate the major categories, after all it's obvious that this was the year of Adele, Katy Perry and Rihanna, among other female artists who ruled the US charts this year. The overall big winner though, is British artist Adele.

From Billboard.com
For the first time, a woman earns three of Billboard's biggest year-end charts honors: No. 1 on Top Artists, the No. 1 Billboard 200 Album and the No. 1 Hot 100 song. The woman, of course, is Adele. The album: "21." The song: "Rolling in the Deep" (both on XL/Columbia).

Since Billboard added the top overall artist category to its year-end recaps in 1981, no woman has ever pulled off the triple crown win until this year.

Billboard's year-end music recaps are based on chart performance during the chart year that began with last year's charts dated Dec. 4 and ended with the Nov. 26, 2011 charts.

The Top Artists recap ranks the best-performing acts of the year derived from activity on the Billboard 200 albums tally and the Billboard Hot 100 singles list, as well as streaming, social, touring boxscore and ringtone data.
