Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” was a dark horse to top Vevo’s Top 10 list of most-viewed music videos of 2014, but it couldn’t beat out Meghan Trainor’s runner-up “All About That Bass” or Iggy Azalea’s first-place “Fancy.”

The Vevo list, released Wednesday, sees Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” making it all the way to No. 4, despite its late start in the calendar year. Nicki Minaj’s racy “Anaconda” video rounded out the Top 5.

To compile the list, Vevo ranked the videos that delivered the most 2014 U.S. views across its apps, and syndication web partners (AOL, Yahoo!, YouTube, etc.) through Nov. 30.

Azalea’s “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, had nearly 140 million qualifying views (and more than 380 million worldwide).

Here is the full Top 10:
1. “Fancy” by Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX
2. “All About That Bass” by Meghan Trainor
3. “Dark Horse” by Katy Perry ft. Juicy J
