Yes you read it right it looks like the Now That's What I Call Music! legendary series may be forced to come to an end later this year.
The compilation, which was launched in '83, could be dropped during the takeover of EMI by Universal.
As part of the deal with the European Commission for Universal's £1.2 billion takeover of EMI, the label has agreed to sell EMI's 50% stake of the Now! brand.
The most recent compilation, Now 82, is currently the biggest selling album of the year with sales of over 700,000.
"Everyone has at least one Now album in their record and CD collection – they're a total guilty pleasure and an essential part of growing up," Top of the Pops magazine editor Peter Hart told The Independent.
"But at the same time, these song collections are nearly as an important part of British pop heritage as Top of the Pops itself, and it would be devastating to see them disappear for good."

In the huge shake up, EMI has been forced to drop some of its biggest stars including Coldplay, Pink Floyd, Kylie Minogue and Lily Allen in Universal Music's takeover deal.
The European Commission has approved Universal Music's takeover of EMI music but only on the condition that Universal agreed to offload dozens of artists.
In the £1.2 billion takeover Universal will sell EMI's Parlophone, which is home to Lily Allen, Blur and Pink Floyd under the conditions.

Among others who must leave are David Guetta, Tinie Tempah, Gorillaz, Cliff Richard, David Bowie, Tina Turner and Duran Duran, who are all signed to Parlophone.
Other key EMI labels that will have to be sold include Mute, home to the Ramones and Jethro Tull, and Chrysalis.

These precautions are being taken in order to minimise income for Universal music and ensure that it doesn't become too powerful within the music industy.
