The Discogs Top 50 Best-Selling Records of June 2020

Editor’s note: This article originally ran as the Top 50 list for May. Thanks to our eagle-eyed Community members, we realized that data was off. A change in the way that we pull the data gave us the June info instead of May. We’ve since updated this article to reflect the correct month.

Discogs is back with another round of the Top 50 list. Every month, we take a closer look at the records that were purchased the most in our Marketplace.

A few brand-new releases popped up in this edition, including Jason Isbell’s well-received Reunions, the most recent full-length Kanye West (Jesus is King was released in 2019, but the blue vinyl LP didn’t drop until May 1), and a Vinyl Me, Please reissue of The Stooges debut album mixed by John Cale, the legendary producer and Velvet Underground member. You can also spot popular 2020 releases from The Strokes, Four Tet, Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes, Dua Lipa, and more.

As far as repeats go, Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, M.A.A.d City makes another appearance on the best-selling list, as does Peggy Gou’s Moment EP, Buena Vista Social Club’s self-titled, David Bowie, and many more. And once again, Tracy Chapman (who has been hanging out on these rankings for a while) lands at No. 14.

What are we listening to? That aforementioned release from Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes ‎– and we know you are, too, since What Kinda Music ranked No. 2 on the most collected jazz records of 2020 so far. We don’t know what’s more likely to get stuck in your head: the melodies or the drum beats.
