  • NEW YORK (AP) — Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke owned 2013 in music.

    Nielsen Entertainment announced late Tuesday that Timberlake’s “The 20/20 Experience” was the top-selling album with 2.4 million units sold. Thicke’s ubiquitous “Blurred Lines” was the best-selling song with 6.4 million tracks sold.

    Albums sales were down. Only 289.4 million albums were sold in 2013, compared with 316 million a year before. Single tracks also saw a decrease, by 6 percent.

Baauer’s “Harlem Shake” topped the year with 489,674,000 streams.

    New releases from Eminem and Luke Bryan rounded out the top three albums. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop” and Imagine Dragons’ “Radioactive” placed second and third on the singles list.
