Using oldboke´s numbers.

All top 10 albums in 2015 reach 1 millions copies thanks to Kendrik Lamar To pimp a butterfly.

2016 looks something like this:

1. Beyonce 1,76
2. Drake 1,7
3. Bruno mars 1,05
4. Metallica 1,05
5. Pentatonix 0,94
6. Moana 0,78
7. Trolls 0,74
8. Rihanna 0,68
9. Panic at the disco 0,67
10. Keith urban 0,65

Blake Shelton 0,62
The Weekend 0,61
J. Cole 0,59
Suicide Squad 0,58
Joey+Rory 0,58
Lady Gaga 0,56
Garth Brooks 0,55
....

2017 is easy to view in 2017 YTD

1. Ed Sheeran 0,83
2. Kendrik 0,78
3. Stapleton 0,50
4. Guardians Galaxy 0,44
5. Beaty and the Beast 0,36
6. Drake 0,35
7. Harry Styles 0,33
8. Jay Z 0,32
9. Chainsmokers 0,27
10. Zac Brawn 0,26

I think top 3 are 100% sure in the final top10.

What to expect from the rest of the year?

Taylor Swift, Eminem for sure.

Pink, maybe Justin Timberlake.....Sam Smith?

When this list gets updated next, will it include SEA/TEA?
I'm curious what pre2017 album has enjoyed a surge with this new counting deal.
Oh I won't ask for much this Christmas, I won't even wish for snow
