The PeekScores of 2013’s Top-Selling Recording Artists
One of the more traditional and sympathetic lists to rear its head annually, and one of the few that is based on somewhat quantifiable numbers and not mere conjecture, is Billboard‘s list of the year’s best selling albums (which you can see here). With the GRAMMY Awards upon us this Sunday, it seemed a fine time to visit this matter.
We’ve taken the top 10 names from Billboard‘s list — cheating a bit, as generally PeekYou indexes individuals and not collectives, such as bands, but we’ve made exceptions here, where applicable — and sorted them out according to their PeekScores; which, as we’ve said in here so many times now, measure the degree to which an individual is (or, in this special instance, a collective are) influential, prominent, active, and/or making an impact in cyberspace.
