IFPI, an organization that represents the recorded music industry worldwide, has announced three additional Global Album Charts, highlighting the biggest releases of 2023 by sales and the top selling vinyl and streaming albums of last year.

Taylor Swift, SEVENTEEN and Morgan Wallen top the IFPI Global Album Charts For 2023.

Korean group SEVENTEEN took the No. 1 spot in the IFPI Global Album Sales Chart, which measures unit sales across all physical formats, as well as full album downloads – a combination sometimes known as “pure sales.” Their album FML sold 6.4 million units globally in 2023, breaking the record for most pre-orders ever for an album in South Korea.

The IFPI Global Album Sales Chart saw an unprecedented 19 of the Top 20 albums come from South Korean acts.

Swift’s 1989 (Taylor’s Version) topped the IFPI Global Vinyl Album Chart. She held each of the top three places, and had an incredible seven albums reach the Top 20 of the chart overall.

Wallen scored his first ever IFPI Global Chart No. 1 on the IFPI Global Streaming Album Chart, which counts global streams from both ad-supported and subscription platform.

Wallen’s 2023 album One Thing at a Time was the biggest streaming album of the year on this basis.

Lewis Morrison, Director of Global Charts & Certifications at IFPI said, “Congratulations to SEVENTEEN and Taylor Swift for their second IFPI Global Charts awards of 2023, and to Morgan Wallen for his first ever global No. 1.”

It has been highlighted in IFPI’s Global Music Report that revenues from both digital and physical music formats continue to see healthy growth.
