Billboard has been publishing a list of the most popular albums every week since March 1956. They include the sales numbers for the albums that make the top ten, but don’t offer a way to view the biggest sales numbers for each year.

For anyone else who is curious, here is a chart that ranks the first week sales of every album of 2019.

NOTE: This only covers first-week album sales in America that debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 chart.
