(KRQE) – Despite the digital age, vinyl records are proving they can stand the test of time. And at the start of a new decade, they are more popular than ever.
For the first time in three decades, vinyl records outsold CDs, generating more than $224 million in revenue in 2019.
According to Billboard, last week was the biggest for vinyl sales in 2019.
A mix of new and old artists make up the top five sellers: Harry Styles’ “Fine Line”, Billie Eilish’s “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”, The Beatles’ “Abbey Road”, Queen’s “Greatest Hits”, and “Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Volume 1.”
For now, it seems vinyl has solidified its place in yet another decade.
