Written by YumCha! Editorial Team Tell a Friend

Emerging once again as the highest-selling C-pop artist, EXO also reclaimed the throne in our Chinese music album bestsellers chart in 2016 with their third album. Former member Lu Han, who ranked seventh in total sales, came in second in the album chart with his solo debut release, while member Lay is in fifth place with his first solo album.

Jay Chou, who made a fantasy-themed comeback in 2016, continued his reign in both the album and DVD charts. Other singer-songwriters including Mayday, JJ Lin and Gin Lee also took spots in the top ten. Late superstar Leslie Cheung was the second highest-selling artist, followed by fellow pop legends Sandy Lam, Jacky Cheung, Alan Tam, Priscilla Chan and the late Teresa Teng and Anita Mui.
