Morning start: Did you know Mozart sold more albums than Beyoncé in 2016?

Your morning start: Fun fact, weather, and video of the day

Another holiday season has come and gone and so begins the next decade.

Fun Fact of the day:

In 2016, Mozart sold more albums than Beyoncé.

In fact, Mozart sold the most CDs in 2016, beating out Adele, Drake, and Beyoncé, even though all of those artists had Grammy-winning hits that year.

So, how’d an 18th-century composer sell more than pop music’s greatest names? Well, in October 2016, the Universal Music Group released a box set commemorating the 225th anniversary of Mozart’s death. Each disc included in the box set counted as one CD sold, and each set contained 200 discs. Throw in the proliferation of streaming—which has significantly dampened CD sales—and voila. Plus, the box set itself flew off shelves: As of this writing, there are only four remaining on Amazon ($686).
