Kygo shares his 2016 highlight reel

“2016 has been the best year so far! This video is the recap of my Cloud Nine festival in August, which was one of many highlights of the year. I want to thank each and every one of you for all your support, and I cant wait to play more shows and release new music in 2017!”

Drake, Prince and Adele Top Nielsen Most Consumed Of 2016

Drake’s “Views” was the most “consumed” album of 2016. Adele’s “25,” released in late 2015, rang up the biggest numbers at physical and virtual cash registers. Neither musician, however, finished as the year’s top-selling artist. Nielsen Music reported a slight gain in overall music consumption in 2016 compared with the prior year. Prince’s overall catalog sold more records than anyone else in 2016.

Overall album consumption, which combines physical and digital sales, as well as track equivalent album and streaming equivalent album numbers from on-demand services, increased 3.1% for a total of 560.7 million last year.

Subtracting the physical sales component, which declined year-to-year, the increase in overall consumption was even stronger, up 8.9% over 2015 results.

Digital album sales dropped more than 20% in 2016 compared to 2015.

Prince’s albums sold more than 2.2 million units, and Nielsen’s report notes that he was the only artist to sell more than 1 million digital and physical albums during the year. When taken together with digital sales of 5.4 million songs, the ultimately combined albums and track equivalent sales pushed him ahead of Drake and Adele.

Still, Adele’s “25” was the top-selling individual album, with 1.7 million copies, while Drake’s “Views” easily topped overall album consumption thanks to billions of song streams, giving him a total volume figure of 4.1 million albums.

The most streamed song — combining audio and video streams — was Desiigner’s “Panda,” with 791 million streams, followed by Rihanna’s “Work” featuring Drake with 708 million streams, Chainsmokers’ “Closer” featuring Halsey (611 million), Drake featuring WizKid & Kyla’s “One Dance” (558 million) and Rihanna’s “Needed Me” (516 million).

The resurgence in vinyl LPs also represented a positive note in the overall sales picture, up 10% over 2015 and constituting 11% of total physical sales.

The top-selling vinyl titles were Twenty One Pilots’ “Blurryface” (68,000 copies), David Bowie’s “Blackstar” (66,000), Adele’s “25” (58,000), Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” (58,000) and Radiohead’s “A Moon Shaped Pool (56,000).

The top-selling digital songs were Justin Timberlake’s “Can’t Stop the Feeling” (2.5 million), Chainsmokers’ “Closer” featuring Halsey (2.3 million), Flo Rida’s “My House” (2.2 millino), Lukas Graham’s “7 Years” (2.1 million) and Drake featuring WizKid & Kyla’s “One Dance” (2 million)
