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.

Is there anything Jessie J cannot sing?
If you think the answer is “yes”, then you sure haven’t heard her amazing covers of Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love‘ and Chris Brown‘s ‘Fine China’. Now, it seems the songstress has her eyes on slaying another of pop’s most recent top hits.
In heavy promotion of her newest album ‘Wild’, Miss J dropped by BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge today to lend an emotional rendition of Taylor Swift‘s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ – swiftly turning the song from a whiny pop mid-tempo to an acoustic soul session.
Did she do it justice? We think so. But, judge for yourself…
