The Top-Selling CD This Year Is By ... Mozart

The year is not quite over, but we know the top selling CD of 2016.

It's not by Beyonce ... but by Mozart.

Billboard reports that 1.25 million CDs in a Mozart box set have been sold.

One clarification: Only a few thousand people bought the Mozart box set.

Billboard counts the different CDs in a box set as separate sales.

So when you put 225 CDs in a box set, the math almost guarantees a smash hit.
