With the Grammy Awards airing on February 8th, this past year’s music is on everyone’s mind. While the nominations are ONE way to determine who was the best-of-the-best in the industry, we wanted to dig up a little more insider info on which music really was the most popular. After a bit of research, we compiled these lists to see which songs ranked highest on iTunes, which videos were most-watched on Vevo, and, sadly for the musicians, which albums were pirated the most online. (Sorry ‘bout that one!) Many of the artists won’t come as a surprise (*ahem* Taylor Swift, Ke$ha, Katy Perry *ahem*), but in the midst of the Happys, Fancys, and Let It Gos, there are a few surprises. Like ... no Beyoncé?! Blasphemy.
