There, the recently-passed Tom Petty sits higher than searches for the McGregor vs. Mayweather fight and fidget spinners. Elsewhere, Taylor Swift‘s Reputation overtook searches for Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar‘s 2017 albums, and standout horror flick It outpaced strong contenders like Baby Driver and Get Out, two of our top films of the year.
