It only took a total of 47.5 million downloads to get there. She could lose her throne but she’s got it for now.
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Black Eyed Peas[/lastfm] were in second place with 42.4 which ain’t too shabby! Then [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem [/lastfm]was third, of course [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] has to be on the list with fourth place.

The music industry saw a spike in sales both in stores and online. Did you buy more this year? I know I downloaded more than I physically bought in stores for the first time ever. I like having a CD in my hand with liner notes, I’m old school!
