Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” may have earned #1 honors on both Rolling Stone Magazine and Billboard Magazine’s 2011 year end lists, but the British songbird is barely hanging on to Facebook’s Memology 2011 list. Instead, it’s everyone’s favorite Bajan songstress, Rihanna that reigns supreme. The 23-year-old singer proved she’s tops when it comes to social networking site, Facebook. I must say that I’m a little surprised she beat out other more tech-savvy artists like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry or even Justin Beiber. Congrats to the “Disturbia” singer.
For Facebook’s year-end recap, Rihanna topped both its music lists. Firstly, the singer’s latest hit single, “We Found Love” earned the honor of being the most-listened song of the year on the Mark Zuckerberg-owned website. The other accolade Robyn Rihanna Fenty earned was that her Fan Page was deemed the fastest growing page of 2011. Facebook didn’t reveal how many new “likes” she received this year, but her total number of fans is at a whopping 47,000,000. See who RiRi beat out on both lists below. Some entries might surprise you. I know it did for me.
It’s interesting to see that Bob Marley had a resurgence in 2011, at least on Facebook that is. Anyone else out there surprised that Avril Lavigne earned more “likes” in 2011 than Usher, Gaga or David Guetta? I wonder how and why that happened. Inquiring minds want to know.
I must be getting old because I’ve never heard of Skrillex until now. Apparently he’s like a Deadmau5, David Guetta-type of electronic dance music producer. Who knew? Speaking of which, Guetta definitely made his presence known on the chart. He also lands two of the Top 10 spots like Skrillex.
