For the first time this decade sellers, two soundtracks cracked the Top 5 sellers of the year. In the main, soundtrack sales have been tanking for the last several years, but the fervent fan based that both the “Twilight” and “Hannah Montana” franchises have created have led to followers needing every affiliated piece of merchandise they can get their hands on.
