YesAsia 2020 Bestsellers - Chinese Music

Written by YumCha! Editorial Team Tell a Friend

The soundtrack of the popular drama The Untamed emerged as 2020's Chinese music bestseller. Another hit drama OST, Someday or One Day, also almost made it into the top ten. Proving their growing international popularity, WayV leaped forward as our best-selling male artist of the year, with all four of their albums since debut charting in the top ten. G.E.M. claimed high positions on both the album and artist charts.

Sammi Cheng, the second highest-selling female singer, continued to top our concert chart with her latest #FOLLOWMi, while last year's #1 Sammi By My Side Birthday Gig Live still ranked seventh. Juno Mak and Kay Tse maintained their spot in the album bestsellers, and AGA re-entered the chart again after two years. Eason Chan, Jay Chou and Crowd Lu obtained top spots in concerts, and Hua Chenyu entered the yearly bestsellers for the first time.

Late legend Leslie Cheung secured the #2 spot among artists, and took sixth place in albums for the remastered record Revisit. Teresa Teng, whose discography gets many reissue and audiophile releases, ranked first among female singers. The best-selling artist charts are again dominated by perennial veteran Hong Kong singers, including Jacky Cheung, Alan Tam, Faye Wong, Shirley Kwan, Andy Lau, Danny Chan and Sandy Lam.

The below rankings are based on Chinese music sales on YesAsia.com from January 1 to December 31, 2020.
