in Live,New Music,News,Noise Pro

2015 was by far the year of Adele but it was also a great year for Australian acts Cold Chisel, Parkway Drive, Tame Impala, 5 Seconds of Summer and Hermitude.

As the year unfolded we had varying degrees of first week successes and while no-one came near Adele’s ‘25’ momentum, 2015 shaped up as a mixed bag of genres from pop, rock, folk and hip-hop all leading various weeks along the way.

Six of the 20 fastest sellers were from Australian acts with one-time teen Wolverine star Troye Sivan transforming to a pop star in 2015.

On iHeartRadio powered by Noise11.com, we see out the year with the Fastest Selling Albums of 2015 end of year special.
