“Midnights” by Taylor Swift is first vinyl album to sell more copies than CDs since 1987

Taylor Swift keeps breaking records with her latest album, Midnights becoming the first vinyl to outsell CDs since 1987. So far, Midnights has reportedly sold roughly 800,000 vinyl copies, according to Hypebae.

“It’s a watershed moment for the entire music industry,” Kim Bayley, the chief executive of the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA), told The Guardian. “After the CD came along and pretty much wiped out the vinyl business, few of us would have believed a renaissance like this was possible.”

Midnights has become one of the biggest albums of Swift’s career for many reasons. Thanks to the record, the “Mastermind” singer became the first artiste in history to occupy the top 10 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
