1. Aloe Blacc
Of course, Aloe Blacc receives the crown for 2013. Coming in at No. 19 on the Billboard year-end charts, his song “Wake Me Up” with Avicii, also charted No. 1 on 42 charts. While his massive collaboration continues to stay on Top 40 radio stations, Blacc plans to release his third studio album, Lift Your Spirit, stateside. You can also hear his current single “The Man” in multiple Beats Studio TV spots, which has managed to stay in iTunes’s Top 20 for the past month.
