Not even two weeks ago we shared a report that indicated not one album released in 2014 had gone platinum.

Indeed, the startling report yielded news that the best selling albums of 2014 were actually released last year (Beyonce‘s ‘Beyonce’ and Disney’s ‘Frozen Official Soundtrack’).  Well, as we predicted, if ever a savior was to be appointed it would be Taylor Swift.

With her top-selling hit ‘Shake It Off’ dominating singles charts, there was no doubt that its parent album - ‘1989’ – would follow in the stead of its predecessors and shift at least 500k its first week.  Two weeks ago, industry forecasters projected the record would sell 750k during its inaugural week of availability.  A week later, that number was pushed upward to 900k.

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:

2cfd7c40fa0406d954ce1e9e7dc2e954 Performances:  2013 Victoria Secret Fashion Show

The secret at the 2013 Victoria Secret Show certainly was not the absence of Urban Pop acts as it was alarmingly clear after riveting performances from the likes of Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy, and more saw credits roll.

That, however (to some), did not make the showing any less enjoyable.
