LGBT Allies Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis Land #1 Pop Single For 2013

Billboard Magazine has compiled its year-end charts and named the Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis single Thrift Shop as the most popular song of 2013. This is somewhat of a surprise as the #2 single for the year, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines, had twelve weeks at #1 vs the six weeks at #1 for Thrift Shop. Lorde's smash single Royals, which had eight weeks at #1, is ranked at #15 for 2013 due to its late in the year peak.

Here are Billboard's top ten singles for 2013.

1. Thrift Shop - Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis
2. Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke
3. Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
4. Harlem Shake - Bauer
5. Can't Hold Us - Mackelmore & Ryan Lewis
6. Mirrors - Justin Timberlake
7. Just Give Me A Reason - Pink
8. When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars
9. Cruise - Florida Georgia Line
10. Roar - Katy Perry

It's "fucking awesome" that the most popular song of the year is from two of the most outspoken straight allies in pop music.
