Coldplay Breaks Record in Digital Album Sales


Coldplay is making history in the digital age: the band has just become the first act to sell over one million full digital albums in the US., and they have also sold approximately two million digital albums worldwide. I don't know why, exactly, but it surprises me a little that out of all the bands and musicians out there, Coldplay is the one to sell the most digital albums.

MusicRadar notes: "And for Coldplay, the stats keep getting better and better: their 2008 release Viva La Vida, is now ranked as the top-selling digital album in SoundScan history. (Although we suspect a certain king of pop might stand a chance at besting that figure within a matter of weeks.)" So Coldplay's achievement here may be surpassed by Michael Jackson pretty soon, which would make sense.

Does this surprise you at all? Or does it seem natural that Coldplay would be the first band to sell over a million digital albums?
