Here Are The 20 Most Pirated Musicians You Stole Money From In 2013

By 12.31.13

TECHNICALLY, you got away with stealing money from Kanye West this year. So, congratulations!(?) Mr. West’s songs were illegally downloaded over three million times in 2013, according to Musicmetric, a figure that seems low, until you remember that’s three million downloads that could have happened on iTunes, but didn’t. That’s not a judgement, just an observation — who am I to fault someone who thwarts Pitbull from being able to afford a fourth room in his mansion devoted to fist-pumping? Anyway, here are the 20 most pirated musicians of 2013.

01. Bruno Mars – 5,783,556
02. Rihanna – 5,414,166
03. Daft Punk – 4,212,361
04. Justin Timberlake – 3,930,185
05. Flo Rida – 3,470,825
06. Kanye West – 3,199,969
07. Eminem – 3,176,122
08. Jay Z – 3,171,358
09. Drake – 3,139,408
10. Pitbull – 3,138,308
11. One Direction – 2,920,445
12. Maroon 5 – 2,857,652
13. Zedd – 2,828,764
14. Nicki Minaj – 2,681,177
15. Adele – 2,594,275
16. Avicii – 2,562,151
17. David Guetta – 2,441,235
18. Linkin Park – 2,352,385
19. Pharrell Williams – 2,336,996
20. Katy Perry – 2,318,740

Iron Maiden‘s New Year’s Eve resolution is to one-up Zedd, whatever the heck that is.
