As Easter weekend arrives, it's time to look back on the BIGGEST selling records of the year so far and which stars are ruling the roost when it comes to the pop world.
The 'Best Song Ever' stars launched their THIRD album in late 2013 and the record is still a huge seller this year. And guess what... they're already working on album four.
The 'White Noise' duo have been a mainstay on the charts with their debut album and incredibly successful string of singles over the past year. And it doesn't look like fans are tiring of 'Settle' anytime soon.
The eighth most popular album of 2014 so far goes to breakthrough New Zealand artist Lorde, who's critical and commercial success speaks for itself. Lorde's the one to watch this year.
The 'Love Me Again' star's debut record has proved a critical success thanks to his incredible production and songwriting talents, as well as his soulful voice that is sure to rank him among the greats one day.
The 'Waiting All Night' four-piece exploded in a huge way last year and thanks to a constant stream of hits from debut album 'Home', the record is still lamong the most popular albums around right now.
He's been a mainstay on the Vodafone Big Top 40 chart for some time now, so it's not surprising fans couldn't wait to get their hands on his debut record.
The 'Happy' star has never been bigger than he is now, and it seems EVERYONE wants to work with him. It doesn't hurt either that his latest solo album has been a HUGE success.
BRIT Awards winners Bastille scored one of the biggest hits of the year in 2013 with 'Pompeii', and their track 'Of The Night' is still a Capital favourite.
The 'XO' star surprised EVERYONE in late 2013 when she dropped her latest album out of nowhere, alongside a music video for each and every track from the record. And the sales speak for themselves, she JUST missed out on the top spot.
The 'Anything Could Happen' star has rarely been out of the charts for the past year or so, and her incredible album re-issue 'Halcyon Days' hasn't hurt this.
