What a difference! BuzzAngle reports just 58 percent of that figure. :o

Nielsen Music, for the tracking period Dec. 29, 2017 through Jan. 3, 2019 wrote:HOT WAX: Vinyl album sales continue to be a bright spot among an otherwise bleak album sales picture. For the 13th consecutive year, vinyl album sales have grown to a new yearly high, rising to 16.8 million sold in 2018 (up 14.6 percent).

Vinyl LP sales accounted for 11.9 percent of all album sales in 2018. In 2017, the format comprised 6.5 percent of album sales. Impressively, vinyl album sales were a whopping 19.1 percent of all physical album sales in 2018 — a new Nielsen-era record share for the once-dormant format, up from 14 percent in 2017.

In total, 14 albums sold more than 50,000 copies on vinyl – up from just eight titles in 2017. Further, 79 titles exceeded 20,000 in LP sales in 2018, as compared to 77 in 2017, and 58 in 2016.

From Shireblogger at HAVEN
Top Artist Album sales 2018 (unofficial)

13. BEATLES :: 380,000
The Beatles (White Album) :: 83,000 (#73)
1 :: 71,000 (#87)
Sgt Pepper :: 45,000

Of all the acts in the Top 20, the Beatles were the first to make their LP chart debut, back in April 1963, beating Roy Orbison by 2 months, and Cher (from the Mamma Mia cast) by 2 years. It was the hoo-ha surrounding the 50th anniversary of the over-rated and over-inflated White Album which propelled them into the Top 20 this year. I'm assuming there'll be similar in 2019 connected to the much better Abbey Road album.

U.S. Vinyl Album Sales Grew 15% in 2018, Led by the Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie & Panic! at the Disco
1/12/2019 by Keith Caulfield

Vinyl album sales in the U.S. hit their 13th consecutive year of growth, with 'Guardians' being the top-selling LP and "Yellow Submarine” the biggest vinyl single.

Vinyl album sales continue to be a bright spot among an otherwise bleak album sales picture. 16.8 million vinyl albums were sold in 2018, according to Nielsen Music (up 14.6 percent) — marking the 13th consecutive year of growth for the format. 16.8 million is also a new yearly high for vinyl album sales since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991.

Comparatively, overall album sales (vinyl LP, CD, digital, cassette, etc.) in 2018 fell 17.7 percent to 141 million.

Vinyl LP sales accounted for 11.9 percent of all album sales in 2018 (16.8 million of 141 million). In 2017, the format comprised 6.5 percent of album sales.

Nielsen Music’s 2018 tracking year ran from Dec. 29, 2017 through Jan. 3, 2019. Due to a quirk in the calendar, there were 53 weeks in 2018, instead of the usual 52. So, for 2018 volume comparisons to 2017, a corresponding 53-week period is used by Nielsen Music for 2017: Dec. 30, 2016 through Jan. 4, 2018. Numbers in this story are rounded.

Perhaps not surprisingly, vinyl LPs were 19.1 percent of all physical album sales (CDs, LPs, cassettes, etc.) in 2018. That’s a new Nielsen-era record share for the once-dormant format, up from 14 percent in 2017.

Vinyl’s growing share of the physical album market isn’t shocking, considering CD album sales continue to falter.

In total, physical album sales equaled 88 million in 2018, down 15.8 percent. And of that sum, CD album sales were 70.7 million — down 20.9 percent.

The CD format continues to be the leader for all album purchases, while the digital format is the runner-up with 53.4 million digital albums sold in 2018 (down 20.7 percent).

TOP-SELLING VINYL ARTISTS: The top-selling vinyl albums artist in 2018 was the Beatles, with 321,000 copies sold of their catalog on vinyl. Their biggest seller was Abbey Road, which finishes the year as the No. 4 largest-seller, with 76,000 copies. The Fab Four also have two more titles among the year’s top 15-sellers: their self-titled (White Album) is No. 11 (56,000) and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is No. 13 (50,000).

The top 10-biggest selling vinyl acts of the year are rounded out mostly by classic and veteran rock acts:

1. The Beatles (321,000)
2. Pink Floyd (177,000)
