Bruno Mars Tops Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift For Billboard’s ‘Artist of the Year’

topsongs Bruno Mars Tops Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift For Billboards Artist of the Year

As 2013 draws to close, the onslaught of year-in-review charts are making their way online.  For music fans everywhere, however, there is only one set of charts that truly matter – Billboard’s year end charts.

Based solely on commercial performance, the tallies are always a list of ‘who’s who’ of the year set to close.  With this year’s headlines being dominated by the likes of Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, P!nk (Billboard’s ‘Woman of the Year’), and newcomers Lorde and Macklemore, many assumed one of the aforementioned would lead as the tally’s ‘artist of the year’.

However, as it has been revealed via the full chart’s unveiling today, the chart’s champion is indeed Bruno Mars.  Listing four Grammy nominations, top-selling tour, #1 singles and the # 1 album ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ to his credit, Mars’ has had a year that was unquestionably out of this world.

But, now that you know who’s #1, do you care to know where your fave landed on the listing?  Tuck in below and sound off:

Via Billboard:

‘[Chart is based on] an artist’s chart performance on the Billboard Hot 100 (which includes airplay, sales, and streaming data) and the Billboard 200 albums chart, as well as Boxscore touring revenue, Social 50 chart activity and ringtone sales.’
