As they have been doing since 2001, the IFPI published this week the top selling albums of the year. Unlike the previous edition, when they got the #1 wrong, this time they properly reported the global domination of Korean superstars BTS.
At the start, the list had some issues mainly due to missing albums. As years pass, its accuracy is getting worse and worse. We will review their 2020 top 10 to see that none of the albums has both its ranking and its sales figure correct.
Starting her career so strongly, the popularity of Lady Gaga inevitably began to diminish album by album. As the years passed by, that’s exactly how her career was being painted but then out of the blue, the singer decide to change her landscape and ended up proving a lot of people wrong.
On a downward trajectory for many years, her career was reinvigorated when she starred and sang in the Box Office smash, A Star Is Born OST.
But has she managed to solidify this revival in fortune, with her lastest pop effort, Chromatica?
So, are you ready to see a countdown of the best selling artists of the 2010s?
A decade ago, the music industry was completely different. We still had record players at home, downloads was the big thing, Adele and Drake were promising newcomers at best and nobody had heard about streaming platforms.
For artists, that’s the tricky part. A decade is long enough to see a completely new generation of music consumers replace the former one.
That’s why it takes you a lot of appeal to remain on top and why this list is made of the truly biggest artists in the World…
[UPDATE] The most streamed artists list is now updated automatically at this link.
If you visit us, you surely saw a lot of news in recent years stating streaming records. What’s unlikely is that you ever saw a comprehensive list of Spotify most streamed artists, with numbers for all those who belong to the all-time top 200.

Every year China seems to be climbing several positions on IFPI’s top music market’s ranking and the growth doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
In just a few years we could see this country overtake markets like the UK, France and Germany and seriously challenging Japan! So who is benefiting the most from this? Just like we did with Gaana earlier this year we’re now looking at the most followed international artists on QQ Music, China’s biggest streaming service.
