Sam Smith has made music history!
The Official Charts Company confirmed he has become the only artist this in the entire world to get a million-selling album in the UK and USA during 2014.
Sams debut album ‘In The Lonely Hour’ (one of our faves) passed the 1 million landmark in the UK in the last 24 hours, making it only the second artist album to reach the landmark this side of the Atlantic, just 24 hours after it became a million-seller in the US!
‘In The Lonely Hour’ became the fastest-selling debut album of the year in the UK and it went straight in at Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart in May this year!
Sam is the second artist to release their album and achieve the incredible milestone, just behind our boy Ed Sheeran! In the US, only Sam Smith, Taylor Swift and the Frozen soundtrack have passed the million-mark this year.
2014 marks the first year since 2011 when more than one album hit the 1 million sales in the UK.
We’re so proud of Sam and what a great early Xmas present!
