NOW That's What I Call Music Is Apparently Still A Thing — And You Won't BELIEVE How Many CDs They're Selling!
Now that's what we call unbelievable!
If you're a fan of pop music who used to buy CDs before the dawn of iTunes and Spotify, then chances are you remember the Now That's What I Call Music franchise.
Well, believe it or not, NOW is still making new sets, and the 93rd installment of the UK-based series just became the fastest selling album of 2016!
Apparently, 247,000 copies were sold in the album's first week — over 100k more than David Bowie's posthumous Blackstar album — meaning the physical CD business is still booming overseas.
For those of you curious which acts still get some love in the mix CD market, the compilation album features 22 tracks, including:

What a shame!
According to the Daily Mirror, Ellie Goulding and her on-and-off boyfriend of two years, Dougie Pointer, have broken up… AGAIN.
Despite the pair being super into each other (Goulding just praised her ex-beau in Red Magazine's March issue), sources say their busy schedules have driven them apart. The twosome's situation is very similar to that of Pretty Little Liars star Torrey DeVitto and her now ex Rick Glassman.
A source said of the disappointing split:
"They are finding it hard to spend time together as Ellie's music career takes her all over the world and she is pulled in different directions. Dougie is trying to make it in America as an actor and they are drifting apart."
What a bummer. It's even more of a disappointment considering the two JUST got back together in December.
