Universal's Top Midyear Sellers: Billie #1, Weeknd #2

Recommended Posts

Vivendi revealed yesterday that UMG’s biggest selling artist projects globally in the first half of 2020 were, in order: (i) Billie Eilish; (ii) The Weeknd; (iii) Justin Bieber; (iv) King & Prince; and (v) Eminem.

 

What unites all of these artists? None of them released a studio album in Q2 2020. (Eminem’s chart-topping Music To Be Murdered By was released in January; The Weeknd’s After Hours arrived in March.)

 

Vivendi says that Universal’s other biggest sellers in H1 2020 were Lil Baby (who released his latest album in February) and Post Malone (whose last album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, was a 2019 release).

Billie selling more than Abel with her 2019 album?  :deadbanana2:

 

Is this based on pure sales or SPS?

"Artist Project" so definitely SPS. Don't forget she had a big boost after the Grammys, Oscars,  and Bond song.
