From Billboard:

U.S. vinyl album sales hit another historic high, as 1.842 million LPs were sold in the week ending Dec. 24, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. That’s the largest week for the format since Nielsen Music/MRC Data began electronically tracking music sales in 1991. The previous high was set only a week earlier, when 1.445 million were sold in the frame ending Dec. 17.

Furthermore, vinyl album sales outpaced CD sales for the week: 1.841 million vs. 1.671 million. It’s the fourth time that’s happened since 1991, and all four instances occurred in 2020. […]

The top-selling vinyl album in the week ending Dec. 24 was Paul McCartney’s new studio set McCartney III, which launches atop the Vinyl Albums chart with nearly 32,000 sold – the third-largest sales week for a vinyl album since 1991.
