Rob's Thoughts: The Best Selling Albums of 2012

For the second straight year, Adele’s “21” is the #1 selling album of the year.
Maybe that’s why we’re all “Adeled-out".  A little happy she’s having a baby and taking some time off.  Most of the usual suspects are on this list, but Mumford & Sons’ “Babel” at # 4 is a testament to “non-mainstream” bands having a better chance of cutting through in this digital age.  Lionel Richie’s “Tuskegee” at # 9 is also a big surprise. Honestly, I don’t know of anyone who has downloaded it, or even talked about it.  But someone must be buying it!  Here’s the top ten…how many do you have?

1. 21 Adele - 4.41 million
2. Red Taylor Swift - 3.11 million (since October release)
3. Up All Night One Direction - 1.62 million
4. Babel Mumford & Sons - 1.46 million
5. Take Me Home  One Direction - 1.34 million
6. Believe  Justin Beiber - 1.34 million
7. Blown Away Carrie Underwood - 1.2 million
8. Tailgates & Tanlines Luke Bryan - 1.1 million
9. Tuskegee Lionel Richie - 1.07 million
10.Night Train Jason Aldean - 1.02 million
