370b0002cdb2228cc9530e600e28e8b6 Official Charts Company Release Highest Selling Releases Of 2012 List

Let’s be honest, save for contributions from Rita Ora, Labrinth (pictured above) and Emeli Sande, 2012 had very little to say when it came to UK albums.

You have a f****** big problem, c***. Take that s*** elsewhere. I can say whatever the f*** I want to say and it had nothing to do with shading, I already said congrats to everyone, if that;s not enough for you then sue me b****, f****** SUE ME.

    Is that why stay is in the top 5 with no video? in the uk is that why she has sold 20 million and counting in the uk alone. is that why her peerfume is slaying the competition and her armani clothing lines both sold out. is that why her clothing line for river island is slaying with only pre orders. is that why she soldout the uk O2 arena 10 nights in a row beeing the first female do so.

    So what, she hasn’t charted, but it’s quality over quantity. This year was Emelie’s in the UK. Bey’s had her time being the Number 1.. She’s gotta let the new kids play too. She’s still the undisputed winner and she’s coming back to prove people like you wrong!!! She be bringing them ‘radio friendly’ ‘chart friendly’ hits!! 4 was an intimate coming of age album. SHE DID THAT!! Now it’s on the next. It’s called development

    You must be a rihanna fan. My fav. didn’t put an album out this year so of course she’s not doing to be on the 2012 list dumbas*. But stay tuned NEW music is coming this year & so is her SUPERBOWL performance oh did i mention her HUGE Pepsi deal? BEWP. Stay mad. ;)

    4 has sold nearly 400k this year in the uk, 4 hasnt even sold that much all together that is not even counting what ttt sold last year.

    It’s a shame Bey didn’t chart well this year giving that 4 was a solid album. None of my jams are on that list apart from Emelie, Gotye, Sia and Labrinth.

All I care about, and everyone with an IQ above 2!!, is the music. And she gives me that each time. Plus my ‘faves’ from last year are all top. Lana & Emelie. And even if my ‘fave’ was a massive flop, if their music speaks to me, that’s enough. Their sales contribute NOTHING to my life

    Is Katy working on a new CD? She should make more songs like “Thinking Of You”. TOY, the acoustic version was everything! She needs to get back to that style IMO!

    So here we have it, folks… regardless as to “selling out” or whatever the f*** the haters have to say, the queen makes top ten in UK and US top singles of the yr. SMH ! Poor losers ! They’ll never accomplish this level of solo success ! Their fans are clinging to 10yr old collaborations with 4 other ppl to go to #1, their ONLY top ten !!!! Nicki already has 2 SOLO top tens!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Carlly Rae Jepsen only had one hit and her album didn’t do well. She didn’t dominate anything.

    who is the supid editor of this post?

    ‘Let’s be honest, save for contributions from Rita Ora, Labrinth and Emeli Sande, 2012 had very little to say when it came to UK albums’ ??????!!!!!!

    R u serious?
    yeah if u call the fact that 7 out of the top 10 best selling albums are from UK based acts, how is that little to say from the UK albums? If anything, the UK acts have dominated worldwide not just in the UK.

    stop following stupid acts like ncki minaj. She may have had a hit with starships but her album was in 37th place with only 242,000 copies. Emeli Sande has almost 1.4 million! Your posts and opinions are pathetic, concentrate on posting things which are facts and no stupid posts lke nicki minaj has a number 1 song on the rnb chart …who cares! this site is a joke!

    I was wondering how in the hell Rita made it on that list, but then again I had to remember who’s behind her failing career….Jay Z will do anything to not look like a failure including buying up as many of Rita’s whack singles as he can….2013 will weed em out and I can’t wait…

    Congrats to all who made the list. It really is cool to have two albums on a year end chart so that’s great for Rihanna. With the amount of promo Rita has and the way this website speaks of her you would expect a little more… Whelp I guess the same could be said for Rihanna in the US but its not really promo making Rihanna its that she really is a major celebrity so you would expect her to excell and not just do ok/good. But she never was a mega seller just a consistent one that will be just under the competition state side and out do them WW. I don’t get how Nicki Minaj fans can shade Mariah sales. She has sold over 200 million albums Albums ALBUMS!!! 200 freakin million. Nicki Minajs career will be over in the next 5 years she’s already almost 30. You really think her appeal will last once she’s older? She should’ve lied about her age like Beyonce. The industry now knows its a market for sexed up flamboyant urban rapper/singers! She really did perfect what lil Kim started and made a “pink print” for the industry. A younger girl around 18-21 can now debut doing the same thing and have a much longer career. I can’t wait to see the young whores who will follow Nickis Path. I bet she will be a white girl or maybe even Asian. But the print is there Thanks to Nicki, she’s just gonna be to old to be doing it for more then the next 5 years.

    Oh and Ciara will flop, why the f*** would she name her album something so pretentious like she’s really gonna do something? She been tasting humble pie for going on 5 years now. Now after flopping twice in a row you a” One Woman Army” she’s so delusional it’s pathetic.

    [...] Well, with 864,000 units sold in the country, ‘Starships’ is the now best selling song to not peak at #1, after enjoying a peak position of #2- selling enough units to land her spot in the nation’s Highest Selling Singles Of The Year tally, as seen here. [...]

    I just want to take this time to post the global year end charts,

    http://www.mediatraffic.de/year-end-albums.htm

    ok so only 3 artist sold over 3 million this year, and people keep trashing album after album because their sales are low, well everyones sales are low except for adele, taylor swift and one direction. so will people stop hating and get the idea that sales are not going to be any good, with a few exceptions.

    beyonces album has sold more than alot of the top 10 albums So beys album is not flop

    neither is rihannas whose album has sold more than many of the top 10s also
