Something tells us this is one record Bruno Mars didn’t want to rack up.
According to the New York Times , the “Gorilla” crooner’s music was illegally downloaded more than any other artist in 2013.
The report, which was compiled in a study by Musicmetric, listed 20 artists whose tunes have been illegally downloaded a total of 64.5 million times in 2013.
And Mars wasn’t alone.
In addition to his roughly 5.8 million downloads, Rihanna followed close behind him with 5.4 million illegal downloads, as well as Daft Punk with 4.2 million and Justin Timberlake with 3.9 million respectively.
Illegal downloaded music aside, Mars put on quite the show on New Year’s Eve during his performance at the grand opening of the Chelsea Hotel at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
After asking audience members what song they should sing as midnight approached, the singer reportedly went back to his Elvis impersonator roots, singing “Jailhouse Rock,” and then MichaelJackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel,” according to the New York Post’s Page Six .
2014 is already gearing up to be a big year for the 28-year-old crooner, who is set to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show Feb. 2.
