Many of the artists at the top of the list—Bruno Mars and Daft Punk, for example—are predictable because of their high-profile releases. But, uh, Flo Rida somehow hit #5, even though he didn't put out a record in 2013, and I can't even remember the last time I cared about the dude.

For those of you wondering, Musicmetric measures approximately 90 percent of BitTorrent traffic. Flo Rida! Who'd a thunk it. I wish there were some magical takeaway. Maybe it's just confused people looking for the state?
