Now That's What I Call Music! and Official Charts have teamed up for a brand new compilation album that's packed with the biggest hits of the 21st Century.
Now That’s What I Call A Million will be released on October 13 and features 63 tracks, including huge singles by Coldplay, The Weeknd, Justin Bieber, Sam Smith and Ariana Grande.
The album is a follow-up to the original Now That’s What I Call A Million released in 2014, which featured 61 songs that have sold over one million physical copies/downloads in the UK. The new edition provides modern twist on the concept that also includes streaming equivalent sales, shining a spotlight on the smash hits occurring in this truly unique period in history, where there have never been so many ways to access our favourite music.
The new Now That's What I Call A Million kicks off with a track which perfectly embodies this new era of modern musical millionaires: The Killers' Mr Brightside. Originally released in 2004 to moderate chart success, the song has seen its popularity soar extraordinarily in the digital age.
Through the explosion of downloading in the mid-noughties and the coming of age of streaming in recent years, Mr Brightside has steadily gone on to become a genuine modern classic that continues to be discovered by subsequent generations of music fans. The popular indie anthem still enjoys a constant presence on the Official Singles Chart more than a decade after its release, so far racking up 182 weeks on chart across its lifetime, 30 of those in 2017 alone.
Martin Talbot, Chief Executive, Official Charts Company said: "For six decades, hitting the million mark has been the landmark achievement for all of the world's greatest artists - reflecting sales of the biggest hits of each respective era. Today, in an era redefined by streaming, it makes sense to redefine this list and create a new set of 'millionaires', spanning the old world and the new.
"We are delighted that Now Music is reflecting this new way of looking at the world through our Now That's What I Call A Million collaboration, featuring many of the greatest tunes of the 21st Century. There is genuinely something for every lover of modern pop music on this fantastic collection."
Alex McCloy, Digital Director at NOW Music, added: “The consumption of music is constantly evolving, the 63 tracks on ‘NOW That’s What I Call a Million’ embrace that, with a grand total of 1.8million physical sales, 40.9 million digital downloads and 4.36 billion audio streams in the UK alone."
