What exactly do we mean by that? We mean sales are higher than the previous year. That hasn't happened in seven years!
The industry has Adele and Em to thank for the extra push.
Adele's 21 has sold 3.8 million units! Astounding! And Eminem pulled his weight too with an impressive 2.7 million.
Congrats, music industry! You're soundtracking the world's emotions, and your accountants can shut up now!
