"Abbey Road" Top Selling Beatles Album

First week sales figures for the Beatles digitally remastered catalog are in and Abbey Road tops the list. The list really isn't all that surprising as it follows the Beatles' top selling albums of all time. Technically, The Beatles (White Album) is their top seller and has been certified platinum 19 times over, but that's because the RIAA certification system counts double albums twice. So, buy one White Album and it counts as two because of the double discs. Cut the White Album's sales in half and it falls to third behind Abbey Road and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In total, the Beatles sold 626,000 albums last week. Jay-Z's Blueprint 3 sold 476,000 copies.

Abbey Road (89,000)
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (74,000)
The White Album (60,000)
Rubber Soul (58,000)
Revolver (46,000)
