But - If we thought the old-new vinyl trend belongs only to the people that we’re brought up with vinyl records in their childhood - We we’re mistaken. Adele’s ’25’ stands in first with 116,000 copies sold, and Taylor Swift comes in second with 74,000 copies of her latest album, ‘1989’. Younger or older, looks like vinyl is here to stay.

1. Adele – 25 (116,000)
