Vinyl Outsells CDs For The First Time Since The 1980’s

For the first time since the 1980s, vinyl records have outsold CDs.

According to CNN, in the first half of the year, vinyl accounted for $232.1 million of music sales. CDs only brought in $129.9 million. Vinyl grew by 4% in the first half of 2020, while CD sales were down 48%.

Overall, physical sales are down 23%.

Personally, I couldn’t tell you the last time I bought a CD. However, I have been building a small vinyl collection! What about you?
