YesAsia 2021 Bestsellers - Chinese Music

Written by YumCha! Editorial Team Tell a Friend

Jacky Cheung is back as our top-selling C-pop artist with the strong overall sales of his album and concert releases, from his latest A Classic Tour concert to older records. Like in 2021, WayV reigned over the Chinese album chart with their third mini-album Kick Back, making them the second highest-selling artist. The original soundtrack of hit drama Word of Honor grabbed the second position on the album chart.

Cantopop singers again dominated the bestsellers. Hins Cheung climbed to #5 among male artists with his album and concert releases in 2021. Sammi Cheng appeared in the top ten for both albums and concerts, while Joey Yung's Pretty Crazy was the #1 concert video. A Roman Tam classic and Hana Kuk's 2020 release both secured spots in the top ten albums.

Yang Yu Teng and PANTHEPACK broke into the top ten with their debut albums, and Wu Qing Feng made his first solo appearance on the concert chart. Old concert releases from Leslie Cheung, Jay Chou and Jolin Tsai also charted, while Wan Kwong's concert boxset ranked tenth.

Music legends of the 70s to 90s remained the most popular, with Teresa Teng continuing to be the top-selling female artist. The rest of our best-selling artists include Faye Wong, Alan Tam, Priscilla Chan, Sandy Lam, Adam Cheng, Shirley Kwan, Anita Mui, Gin Lee, Danny Chan, Frances Yip and Eason Chan.
