VINYL SALES Grow For The 17th Straight Year in The US

In 2022, for the second year in a row, vinyl sales outsold CDs in the US,
according to the Luminate Year-End Music Report and Billboard. Likewise,
vinyl sales grew for a 17th consecutive year in the US, with Taylor Swift’s
Midnights
being the top-selling vinyl in 2022 with 945,000 copies sold last
year.

In other words, Midnights was not just the top-selling album of the year,
it had the most vinyl sales in a year since Luminate, formerly SoundScan,
began tracking in 1991. One out of every 25 vinyl albums sold was a Taylor
Swift
album if you count Folklore‘s #7 spot.

01. Taylor Swift, Midnights (945,000)
02. Harry Styles, Harry’s House (480,000)
03. Olivia Rodrigo, Sour (263,000)

Weirdly enough, the report also states that only half of fans buying records actually
own a record player. Oh yes, vinyl albums and its artwork are preety cheap to decorate your house with.
