Best-Selling Albums of 2010
2010 has been a good year in music bringing us lots of club bangers and great singles over the radio.
Over the year, many new artists have come out under the hip-hop genre and Pop music has come back full throttle. New artists have garnered fans across the nation, meanwhile only a few veteran artists have proved to critics and fans that they are still going strong in this game.
Now that the year’s over we can take a look back, not at the hottest singles, but at the best-selling albums. Here’s the Top Ten List of 2010.
