2018 TOP 50 ALBUMS

Albums still matter, but the business definition of the term is far different in 2018 than it has been during the format's six decades of supremacy.

With that in mind, consider that Republic landed an industry-high 11 albums—including 1# and #2—in the 2018 Top 50, one more than Atlantic, while IGA has seven in the Top 25, more than any of its rivals. Feel free to compare and contrast…
