Billboard's Top 25 Songs of 2008

After scoring the first million-plus sales debut in three years, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III easily cruised to the top of the 2008 album chart, selling nearly 2.9 million copies, per Nielsen SoundScan.

With a mean grille, wobbly lyrics and smash hits like "Lollipop" and "A Milli," the mixtape king certainly helped the music biz from tanking even worse, but Tha Carter III is still the first year-end best-seller in the SoundScan era to move fewer than 3 million copies. SoundScan began tracking albums in '91.

"Lollipop," the rapper's first-ever Hot 100 chart-topper, also ruled the most cell phones last year with nearly 2.4 million ringtones sold.
Taylor Swift, Coldplay, TI and Beyonce also topped the list.
