  9. Rihanna December 13, 2013

    Considering the fact Rihanna only releases a new album every year full of trash…also let me know when Rihanna sells 80000 copies in the first three hours.

  10. rihanna is getting bigger and beyonce is decreasing. December 13, 2013

  13. BrownSuga December 13, 2013

    WOW Royals made a swift move up there in those charts considering its release

  14. Check Your Lipstick Before You Come & Talk To Me December 13, 2013

    Dead @ Applause (supposedly a huge comeback single) being under Miley, Selena, Ariana etc.. But that is where it should be – all of those songs were better than Applause to be honest – no one wants to hear a mad scientist on a track rambling about wanting applause when it isn’t well-deserved. Truth all wrapped up in a shiny bow for ya’ll Merry Xmas!

  15. NAVY COMMANDER December 13, 2013

    Not the queen slaying 2013 with songs from 2012? Where’s ciara

  16. Know Ya Facts December 13, 2013

    did u read the full list? or u were to lazy?

  17. Barb B**** December 13, 2013

    We Can’t Stop way higher than Diamonds

  18. Onika Slays A Bxtch December 14, 2013

    @NAVY body party is all the way down at 84.

  19. Jay Scorpio December 14, 2013

    Need a remind folks that Diamonds is a 2012 single so that fact it makes 2013 lists an achievement in itself!

  20. JER December 14, 2013

    That Harlem Shake even on there is a travesty

  21. number1k9 December 14, 2013

    The list is terrible!

    Especially the Top 10. Really!?

    “Blurred Lines,” should have been #1.

    And the fact that the forgotten “Girl On Fire,” is Top 50…. Shows the list is a mess!
