But that was just a preview. According to stats just published by the Official Charts Company, the best-selling album in the country sold just 9,578 units. It was Rihanna’s Talk That Talk, and it’s the lowest total since the company started tracking in 1994. There are no other records to show a slower-selling album release. The UK has a population of roughly 60 million.
I wonder if the CD sales stats are similar in Australia?
