iTunes lists '25,' 'Uptown Funk' as year's top sellers
NEW YORK — To no surprise, Adele's "25" is the best-selling album on iTunes for 2015.
Apple announced Wednesday that Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" was the year's biggest single, while Adele's "Hello" is sixth on the songs list.
Ed Sheeran's "Thinking out Loud," Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth's "See You Again," Maroon 5's "Sugar" and "Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon ranked second through fifth, respectively.
Coincidently, "Uptown Funk" and "Thinking out Loud" earned Grammy nominations for record of the year on Monday, while "Thinking out Loud" and "See You Again" will compete for song of the year.
Drake's "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" was second behind "25" on the albums list. Drake's album with fellow rapper-singer Future, "What a Time to Be Alive," ranked sixth.
Taylor Swift's "1989," the "Fifth Shades of Grey" soundtrack and Justin Bieber's "Purpose" rounded out the Top 5.
The Weeknd earned three songs in the Top 20 with "Earned It" (No. 9), "Can't Feel My Face" (No. 11) and "The Hills" (No. 15). Swift's "Blank Space" and "Style" came in at Nos. 18 and 20, respectively.
