The Top 20 Best Selling Artists Of The 21st Century


A dream of just about every musician is to become a best-selling artist. Whether for fame, fortune, or both, this dream is always in the backs of their minds, just waiting to break out onto the dance music scene. That dream, however, is realised by very few talented artists and, for them, turning out hit after hit seems almost easy.

Creating Vinyl Music For The Fans

And while it might seem easy, fans don’t always see the long hours musicians put in behind the scenes. From practice and writing, to actual studio time laying down tracks and creating vinyl music, being a musician can be hard work. The reward, however, is great as you hear your songs being played by fans everywhere, or you see the crowd come to life with that first arpeggio or when the beat drops. These are the moments that make it all worthwhile and that help to keep that dream alive for thousands of musicians and DJ’s all over the world.

With that being said, we are going to take a look at 20 of the best-selling music artists of all time by vinyl album sales. You can see who has realised their dreams and hopefully it will inspire you to keep working towards your own. Let’s get started:
