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.
