At the end of every year, music sites usually do a tally of all the best selling albums, singles and tours to let fans know how relevant and successful their faves were for the year.
So it should come as no surprise that, after Billboard did their math magic for 2013, the likes of Jay Z, Beyonce, Drake and Justin Timberlake, all made the top ten list for the most albums sold in 2013!
Timberlake, who returned to music after more than a 5 year hiatus, leads the pack with almost 2.5 million sold for his album, The 20/20 Experience.
Rapper Eminem, who also made sort of a comeback last year with his The Marshall Mathers LP 2, comes in second place for most albums sold with over 1.7 million sold.
Bruno Mars fans will be happy to know that their favorite singer came in at number 5, with his album, Unorthodox Jukebox, by selling more than 1.4 millions copies.
Finally, rounding out the rest of spots at number 7,8, and 10 are Drake, Beyonce and her ROC hubby, rapper Jay Z.
Drake was able to sell over 1.3 million copies of his third studio album, Nothing Was The Same, which dropped last year in September.
Following right behind the OVO artist is Beyonce, who literally JUST released her album last month, and was able to take 8th place for the most albums sold in 2013.
(She also reportedly has just out sold her last studio album 4, in only a matter of weeks…which is pretty fucking impressive whether you’re a fan or not.)
And lastly, one of the biggest names in Hip Hop, Jay Z, takes the 10th spot with his 12th studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, which sold 1.1 million copies since it’s release earlier this year.
Congrats to all of the artists!
