According to Billboard…
So far this year, 60 digital songs have sold over 1 million units as compared to 83 last year.
And after nine months, not one artist-album has yet to hit the million-unit mark.
Frozen soundtrack is the year’s best-seller so far with a robust 3.12 million units.
In the prior year, five albums each had scanned over a million units, led by Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience, which at the end of 2013’s third quarter had scans of 2.3 million units.
