According to Billboard
's Morning Phase
was the lowest-selling LP of this year's album of the year nominees and the lowest-selling album to win AOTY since 2008.
For comparison, six out of the last 10 LPs to win album of the year have sold more than a million copies before nabbing the honor. And all but three have moved more than half a million copies before winning album of the year (Arcade Fire's The Suburbs was also shy of that milestone).
