Before Swift released her album, Ed Sheeran’s Divide was the year’s best-selling album, with 919,000 units sold. Kendrick Lamar’s Damn has sold 8,42,000 units.

Since Billboard changed how it views albums sales — incorporating single track sales (10 song sales = 1 album sale) and streaming (1,500 streams = 1 album sale) — Sheeran’s album has sold 2.3 million units overall. Lamar’s has moved 2.5 million units.
