        Only One Album from the Past Two Years Has Sold Two Million Copies | The Bert Show                                                                                        

Only one album that’s come out in the past two years has sold at least 2 million copies…and it’s “Reputation” by Taylor Swift.  It’s her sixth album to sell at least that many.

In all of 2017, only two albums sold more than a million copies:  Taylor’s album and “Divide” by Ed Sheeran.  That’s a stark contrast to 10 years ago, when 29 albums sold at least 1 million, and eight surpassed 2 million.

Before “Reputation”, the last album to have sold 2 million copies was “25” by Adele, and it did so in just three days, after coming out in November of 2015.  It has sold 9.45 million copies to date.
