HELLO FROM THE OTHER SIDE: musicMagpie Announce That British Singing Sensation Adele Is The Most Traded-In Artist Of The Decade

24 December 2019

Adele is the most traded-in music artist of the last decade, according to data from re-commerce specialist musicMagpie.

Despite her worldwide success and enduring popularity, Adele’s albums 21 and 25 were the most traded-in of 2012 and 2016 respectively and in total over 500,000 copies of her albums have been sold to the musicMagpie site over the last 10 years.

Other artists to make the top ten list of traded artists include Ed Sheeran, One Direction and Lady Gaga. The most traded in artist of 2019 is Scottish singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi, despite scooping multiple industry awards and topping the singles and albums charts this year.



Liam Howley, chief marketing officer at musicMagpie, said “With 2020 on the horizon we thought it would be fun to reflect on the UK’s changing tastes in music over the last decade. Adele coming out as most traded-in is probably not that surprising for people given her continued popularity and the huge album sales she’s generated..

And the top 10 most traded of the decade really is a who’s who of music royalty featuring major artists from the last 60 years, who remain as popular now as they were when they first hit the charts.”
