Here’s the Billboard top 10 list:

  7. Daft Punk (Random Access Memories)
  8. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (The Heist)
  9. Bruno Mars (Unorthodox Jukebox)
  10. Blake Shelton (Based On A True Story)

Here’s a comparison, courtesy of PageData, of important Facebook page statistics among these artists (Kanye West does not have an official verified Facebook page, oddly enough):
