The digital receipts have been counted, the numbers are in, and the big winners so far in 2012 are…
Gotye and the Black Eyed Peas!!
In less than six months, Euro-Aussie Wouter "Wally" De Backer — a.k.a. Gotye — has sold over five million copies of Somebody That I Used to Know!!
That's like 4,975,000 more albums than all the albums K-Fed sold COMBINED!!
Also, Gotye didn't shoot himself with a 9MM handgun so, really, this year couldn't get any better!!
The Black Eyed Peas, meanwhile, are racking up impressive career achievements!
I Gotta Feeling went platinum eight times over, giving the group a whopping 22 certified singles under their collective belt!
Fans of the late, great legendary Whitney Houston can hold their heads high, too. Her Greatest Hits album just went five times platinum!
Hooray for money!!
