iTunes released its year-end list of the highest selling songs and albums of 2014. Would it really surprise you if we said Pharrell’s “Happy” was the highest selling song of the year? Well, that turned out to be true and John Legend’s “All of Me” and Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” followed in the top three, according to Billboard.

Meanwhile, the Frozen soundtrack took the cake at number one on the albums side with Taylor Swift’s 1989 coming in second place and Coldplay’s Ghost Stories making its mark at third.

Oh, and of course, there’s a “Best-Of” list. Beyonce’s self-titled album helped her win the “Best Artist” category with Taylor Swift earning the “Best Album” nod with 1989. So, who won the “Best Song” placement? That would be Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX with “Fancy.”

2. “All of Me,” John Legend
3. “Dark Horse,” Katy Perry
4. “Talk Dirty,” Jason Derulo
