La La Land Soundtrack #1 Selling Vinyl of 2017 So Far

According to new statistics released by Nielsen Music, the La La Land soundtrack is currently the best-selling vinyl record of the year in the US.

This comes as no surprise after the acclaimed musical’s very memorable involvement in what is being referred to as “the great Oscars mix-up of 2017” back in February. The remarkable soundtrack features music written by composer Justin Hurwitz, a song featuring John Legend, and the film’s stars, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, offering vocal contributions to all 15 songs on the soundtrack. It’s easy to see why the album has done so well.

Nielsen Music has reported that the soundtrack was the best-performing vinyl release in the US during the first quarter of 2017, selling 25,000 units, La La Land has surpassed its closest competitor – Bob Marley’s Legend – by 9,000 units so far this year.
