Best-Selling Album by Year, 1992-2016

Top-Selling Albums

This chart shows the best-selling album by year from 1992 to 2016. Only albums sold within each year are counted.  Since it’s the best-selling album within a year, it often helps for an album to be released earlier in the year, since it then gets the more months of sales. Some albums which were the best-selling in a certain year were actually released the previous year, such as Jagged Little Pill by Alanis Morissette, which was released in 1995 but was the best-selling album of 1996. Another example is 21 by Adele, which was released in 2011 but was the best-selling album in both 2011 and 2012.
