If you aren't a T-Swift fan, then this news might horrify you. Billboard has reported that the country-pop crooner made more money than anyone else in music in 2013--to the tune of nearly $40 million.

When you first hear the news on Will Smith and Jay Z teaming up with Calvin Harris to produce a new HBO series centered around the EDM culture, it leaves one scratching their head in slight confusion. Not to mention, this new series have been confirmed to be a comedy. There have always been an abundance of documentaries or recap videos trailing the life of DJs and the EDM revolution, but this new series titled, Higher, is a step beyond that.
The premise of this new series is going to be a half-hour comedy show that will undoubtedly have superstar DJ names attached to it.

2. As the popularity of streaming music soars, this could have translated into a $59 million industry in album sales. A huge bummer for record labels.
4. The top streamed song of 2013 was Baauer's now iconic 'Harlem Shake.' With all the hundreds of 'Harlem Shake' renditions and parodies scattered around the internet, you go Baauer!
