2015 Bestsellers on iTunes

Now that 2015 is winding down, it’s time for us to do another year-in-review. 2015 has been a big year in music and film. We have Star Wars: The Force Awakens premiering next week, December 17 and we had Adele’s explosive tune Hello become a huge hit. These types of pop culture phenoms reflect back on our purchases, especially on iTunes, a leading media provider. Here were the best sellers in the U.S. on iTunes this year:

Films

  1. Star Wars: The Digital Movie Collection
  2. Big Hero 6
  3. American Sniper
  4. Inside Out (2015)
  5. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  6. Interstellar
  7. Jurassic World
  8. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  9. The Hunger Games: MockingJay Part 1
  10. Fifty Shades of Grey

It’s no surprise that the Star Wars series became a sudden interest again. Thanks to the upcoming movie, everyone is once again obsessed with lightsabers and Darth Vader. Several movies that were released in 2014 are still popular within the iTunes App store. Though American Sniper and Interstellar were released in 2014, they still top the chart. In fact, the only films on this top ten chart that were released this year were Inside Out, Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Fifty Shades of Grey.

  1.  25 – Adele
  2. If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late – Drake
  3. 1989 – Taylor Swift
  4. Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack- Various Artists

  7. To Pimp a Butterfly – Kendrik Lamar
  8. Beauty Behind The Madness – The Weeknd
  9. Compton – Dr Dre
  10. Montebello – Sam Hunt

It’s no secret that Adele has made quiet the re-entrance into the music industry. Even though she just released her album, it tops at #1 for the entire year. Taylor Swift still triumphs at the top as she often does with any list she makes it on (but no one can beat Adele, not even Taylor).

Songs

  1. Uptown Funk – Mark Ronson
  2. Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
  3. See You Again – Wiz Khalifa
  4. Sugar – Maroon 5
  5. Shut Up and Dance – Walk the Moon
  6. Hello – Adele
  7. Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding
  8. Honey I’m Good – Andy Grammer
  9. Earned It – The Weeknd
  10. Trap Queen – Fetty Wap

Apparently it is possible to beat out Adele, right Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars? Uptown Funk was basically the anthem of the year. It topped the iTunes charts in the UK, too. No Taylor Swift on the list, but Adele still made the list.

TV Shows

  1. Game of Thrones
  2. The Walking Dead
  3. Downton Abbey
  4. Scandal
  5. The Blacklist
  6. The Big Bang Theory
  7. Suits
  8. The Americans
  9. Modern Family
  10. Homeland

Game of Thrones topped the 2015 iTunes chart in both the U.S. and the UK. Taking second is a show that still has a major fanbase–The Walking Dead. Game of Thrones, though, has proven to be quite the franchise. It has been critically acclaimed has experiencing a home cinema production similar to Lord of the Rings.
