RIANZ's The Chart Announces 2012 Top Sellers

The Chart has announced their top sellers lists for 2012. 

RIANZ chart manager Phil Matcham says Kiwi success on the charts provides an encouraging boost for local artists. 

"The introduction of the New Zealand Artist Top 20 singles and album charts has given us a chance to highlight the diversity and success of Kiwi music," says Phil. "Even with many acts crossing over to the main Top 40 Charts, the New Zealand Top 20 remains a true celebration of the variety and talent we have in our country."
