TOP 50 ALBUMS YTD


The top three albums of the first third of 2019 are from female artists: Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish and Lady Gaga (sorry for ignoring you, Bradley). Ari’s thank you, next is the only release to hit seven figures YTD. Republic’s Monte Lipman and Interscope’s John Janick are flexing their muscles with three albums apiece in the Top 10. Interscope lands eight in the Top 50, and so does Republic.

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack (Hollywood) puts classic rock on the leaderboard at #7, while Luke CombsThis One’s for You (River House/Columbia Nashville) is the top country album at #15. Remarkably, Chris Stapleton’s Traveller (Mercury Nashville), released four years ago this month, is still in the Top 50, moving 211k units since January.

UMG owns a commanding 54% marketshare on the chart, while WMG takes 26%, Sony has 19% and the rest 1%.
