The Beatles Sell More than 1 Million Albums in 1st Half of 2020

More than 50 years after they broke up, the Beatles are still the country’s most popular band.

That’s according to the Nielsen Music Midyear Report, which reveals the Liverpool quartet sold more than a million albums during the first half of 2020!

That puts the Beatles 326,000 units ahead of the second-place finisher, Queen.

Only one other group has topped one million in sales this year: Korean pop act BTS, according to Nielsen.

The Beatles have also turned up on the vinyl album chart, landing in fifth place by moving 54,000 copies of 1969’s “Abbey Road.”
