From "Call Me Maybe" to "Gangnam Style" and "Somebody That I Used to Know," 2012 was a great year for omnipresent pop music hits of all kinds.

It's also so last year.

Some of the biggest names in music are set to release new material in 2013. Famous industry veterans and youngsters alike will be back in full force.

Let's take a look at 13 of the biggest albums to come in '13:

50 Cent's new music video has been released, and let's just say that "Be My Bitch" does not lack for directness. It's about raw sexual compatibility.

Featuring a couple of full-figured models moving ever-so-slowly - first in an empty bar and later in a four-post bed - it's nothing if not poetry in motion.

You also have to love the hilarious plug for 50 Cent's self-branded headphones ... smack in the middle of a threesome. Give it up for marketing:

The track is on the new album from 50, who made headlines this month for calling Kim Kardashian trash. Look for Street King Immortal November 13.

Jay-Z, Diddy and 50 Cent released "I Get Money (The Forbes 1-2-3 Billionaire Remix)" in '07, a celebration of their inclusion atop Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings list.

Five years later, the same three artists are in a more exclusive group - the Forbes Five, a list of hip-hop's wealthiest moguls - though no longer 1-2-3 in that order.

Which of the three earns the most? And who else made the Top 5?

DIDDY DIRTY MONEY

Diddy is the closest to becoming a billionaire, with a net worth of $550 million. The Bad Boy Records founder has been a mainstream mainstay for 15 years.

Thanks to his knack for self-promotion and outside business deals with Ciroc vodka, Sean John, Enyce, Blue Flame and other tech startups, he gets money.

A lot of it. And he's not even done. Diddy signed a deal with Comcast to launch cable channel Revolt in 2013. He'll own the channel outright. Cha-ching.

Jay-Z is #2 at $460 million. Unlike his fellow Forbes Five members, he still churns out music and goes on tour, most recently with pal Kanye West.

He sold his Rocawear clothing label for $204 million in 2007, signed a 10-year $150M deal with Live Nation in 2008, and co-owns the New Jersey Nets.

There's also his 40/40 Club chain, his ad firm Translation, cosmetics company Carol's Daughter and other businesses too numerous to list. Very rich.

Unhappy with the way Interscope Records has been handling his new album, 50 Cent has canceled the upcoming release, claiming execs "dropped the ball."

"Man I'm not releasing a album," 50 wrote on his Twitter page Wednesday. "I can't believe interscope is this f--ked up right now. I apologize to all my fans."

He proceeded to elaborate on his future, with or without the label.

Mr. Cent

"I will work with other artist on there projects but I will not put out another album," he said. "They dropped the ball with me one time to many."

50 Tweeted that he instead would put out "Psycho," the latest single by longtime collaborator Dr. Dre off the latter's upcoming swan-song, Detox.

"Your gonna love it it's a big song ... I just don't think it deserves a great set up sense they can't seem to get it right when it comes to me."

Fiddy was reportedly irate that he recorded a total of 41 tracks for his album and the one tune he gave Interscope, "I'm On It," leaked online.

"I hate when I can't present my music the way….I feel it should be," he complained, but since it's out there, "f--k it, check out 'I'm ON IT.'"

Rhode Island's most famous DJ and rap's biggest gangsta, together at last.

Pauly D is close to joining forces with G-Unit, 50 Cent's label, as 50 desperately wants to sign the Jersey Shore star and has offered a three-album deal.

In a sign of the apocalypse - but not one you can really get upset about 'cause c'mon, who doesn't love Pauly D - the two sides are nearing a contract.

Paul D

The Jersey Shore pimp/DJ met with Fiddy and his people in NYC last week, where they discussed the lucrative record deal and a Pauly D merchandise line.

Specifically, Pauly D-brand headphones, obviously.

Nothing's signed yet,but according to sources, 50 wants to hammer out the deal ASAP before Pauly jets off to shoot Jersey Shore Season 4 in Italy.

Talks have become so serious, 50 and Pauly have even started to kick around ideas for other artists he and Pauly can collaborate with. Any ideas?
