List: Top Ten Bestselling Albums in the USA in 2008

Date: January 2009

Source: Nielsen Soundscan

Base: By unit sales.

Notes: Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter III' album headed the list of top 10 bestselling list in 2008. You can compare these figures with the 2006 top ten best selling albums or the 2005 list and you will see that sales volumes are noticeably heading down, most probably due to the growth in digital downloading which enables more selective choices as the 'long tail' takes effect.
