Well we can't say we're surprised...

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 show!
Now that the BRIT Awards are over and we've seen some pretty great performances, it's time for a rundown of everyone that won!
Ch-ch-check out the complete list of winner and let us know if U agree with who took home the hardware (below)!!!
What a special send off.
For one thing, Lorde made a surprise appearance singing Life on Mars with David's band in honor of the late singer, but that was hardly the only impressive aspect of the tribute.
The Kiwi teen was joined by Annie Lennox, Gary Oldman, and more stars as they said goodbye to the Thin White Duke!
We bet he would have absolutely loved this.
Ch-ch-check out Lorde's extra British Life on Mars in remembrance of David (above)!!!
Their magic sure worked on us!
Luckily, they cast a spell on the audience with the most unique rendition of Black Magic we've heard yet!
It felt like a voodoo version of their bubblegum pop hit, but all we know for sure is that Perrie Edwards sounded simply fantastic.
We also wouldn't mind owning one of those green fur coats! LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out Little Mix's extra British Black Magic (above)!!!
He sure isn't holding back!
The 2016 BRIT Awards only just started and James Bay has already been on stage three freakin' times.
First he won the award for British Male Solo Artist, then he joined Justin Bieber for a special rendition of his song Love Yourself, and now he's getting to do his own music live!
The 25-year-old sounded effortless as ever, and we're sure we'll see him again before the night ends.
Ch-ch-check out James' extra British Hold Back the River (above)!!
There's a reason why she has five No. 1 songs in the UK!
That's because she sang not one, not two, but three songs while she was up on that stage!!!
Keep doin' what you're doin', girl!
Ch-ch-check out Jess' extra British Ain't Got Far to Go, Don't Be So Hard on Yourself, and Hold My Hand (above)!
And she certainly shows it in her festive music video for the upbeat jam Ain't Got Far To Go!
The British singer filmed the video in Cuba — where the vibrant setting, bright colors, and spritely choreography really enhance the song's celebratory message!
Glynne is currently in the states on her North American I Cry When I Laugh tour, with select concerts supported by Conrad Sewell!
Ch-ch-check out the singer's fun video (below) and see her tour dates to find out when she is coming to a city near you!
