Now 96 has sold three times the amount as its nearest rival - which is Now's previously release, Now 95. Overall though, Now 96 has ground to make up as Now 95 has sold over a million copies since its release in November 2016. 

Now's spin-off collections are also selling well; That's What I Call R&B is at 9 and Party Hits is the 15th best-selling comp of the year, while others making a dent in the Top 40 are Now Disney (22), Now Mum (23), Now No.1 Hits (24) and Now Driving Rock (27). Phew!
