Lil Wayne: Almost As Popular As Sex

By: Maura / April 22, 2008

AP07090903011.jpgAt least on YouTube, where searches for his name came in second only to “sex” during last month. Compete.com has released the top 25 search terms on the video-sharing site for last month, and there is some good news for the music business buried within: music-related search terms made up 16 of the 25 top queries, with the number of hunts for Chris Brown and “No Air” even beating out the number of searches for “porn.” (OK, so people looking for that sort of thing are probably over at YouPorn, but never let it be said that searching for sex on the Internet isn’t something of an eternal quest.) Full list after the jump.

1 Sex Sex 0.132%
2 Lil Wayne Music (Artist) 0.109%
3 Low Music (Artist) 0.100%
4 Chris Brown Music (Artist) 0.091%
5 No Air Music (Song Title) 0.081%
6 Porn Sex 0.078%
7 Family Guy TV 0.077%
8 Soulja Boy Music (Artist) 0.065%
9 Naruto Anime 0.065%
10 Funny Comedy 0.063%
11 Jonas Brothers Music (Artist) 0.063%
12 Usher Music (Artist) 0.053%
13 Hannah Montana Music (Artist) 0.050%
14 Jeff Dunham Comedy 0.050%
15 Miley Cyrus Music (Artist) 0.048%
16 Jabbawockeez TV (Dance Group) 0.047%
17 Touch My Body Music (Song Title) 0.047%
18 Love Song Music (Song Title) 0.045%

20 American Idol TV 0.043%

23 With You Music (Song Title) 0.041%
24 Sexy Can I Music (Song Title) 0.039%
25 WWE Sports 0.038%

I’m pretty sure that the “Low” coming in at No. 3 is the unkillable T-Pain assisted Flo Rida track and not the Minnesota indie-rock stalwarts, but man would I love to be wrong.
