Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) May 6, 2005 -- Best-selling recording artist 50 Cent is named Artist of the Month for April, 2005 by MPFree (www.MPFree.com). Artist of the Month is awarded each month to the artist whose music was downloaded most frequently by MPFree members. During April, more MPFree members downloaded 50 Cent’s tracks than any other artist. "50 Cent was the clear winner for April. The second-place finisher was Eminem, March's Artist of the Month," said Phil Nadel, President of MPFree. The third-place finisher for April was Gwen Stefani.

For the second month in a row, the most downloaded single during April was "Candy Shop" by 50 Cent. Green Day's "Holiday" was second. MPFree.com is a web site that provides its members with a legal way of getting totally free music downloads. "We’re giving our members the best of both worlds—a huge selection of music downloads that are both 100% free and 100% legal," said Bill Diamond, Co-Founder of MPFree.

MPFree members vote for Artist of the Month by downloading music from their favorite artists. "There are now more than 600,000 MPFree members," said Nadel, "and they are downloading a lot of songs for free every month. The results are really representative of the public as a whole."
