Prince Sold More Albums Than Any Other Artist Last Year

Album sales generally spike when an artist passes away.

When it’s an artist like Prince, sales skyrocket.

According to Billboard, Prince sold the most albums in 2016 with a total of 2.23 million sales. He narrowly beat out Adele who finished with 2.21 million.

Incredibly, a bulk of Prince’s album & songs sales occurred in the month following his death. From April 21 to May 19, 2016, a total of 5.65 million album & song sales were registered out of the 7.7 million Prince had in 2016.
