Yearly charts for Billboard run from the first week of December to the final week of November, to allow the year end charts to be determined in time for the last Billboard magazine release of the year. The Hot 100 songs are ranked through a points system that is based on radio airplay, sales data and streaming data for each song. The year end charts are based on a cumulative total of the points each song received during the year.

Pharrell Williams wrote, produced and performed "Happy." Released on November 21, 2013, the song was featured on both the soundtrack to "Despicable Me 2" and Pharrell William's album "Girl." The song and its accompanying video won the Grammy Award for Best Music Video at the 57th Grammy Awards. It also received an Academy Award nomination for best original song and multiple MTV Music Award nominations.

The remaining songs on the top 10 were created by Katy Perry, John Legend, Iggy Azalea, One Republic, Jason Derulo, MAGIC!, Meghan Trainor, Ariana Grande and Sam Smith.
