    Makes sense.
    And I might suggest that this list also indicates artists that people may like this song or that song but don't trust the artist enough to buy and keep a catalog of their material.

    Only true for the primarily Pop artists, namely Rihanna and Katy Perry. And to some extent, the Black Eyed Peas.

    Others sold that much digital tracks mainly because of a very solid core fanbase that buys everything, with the exception of Beyonce, which actually attracted people to keep a caralog of her material, not having the die-hard fans to buy her singles, but managed to keep a string of smashes going for three eras straight.

    Only people I've downloaded from that list are Eminem and Kanye West, and the downloads were illegal until I actually bought the physical copy last year, soooo. . .

    No surprises on that list with as popular as those artist are and their having the ability to attract listeners from other genres.
