I believe Evita is sometimes put at +10 million because its US certification, 5xPlatinum. But many people forget that it was a double disc, so it shipped half of that, 2.5 million. It most certainly didn't sell 8.5 million outside USA, much less I would say actually.
I remember reading somewhere Music shifted about 15 million copies worldwide, but that's certainly too much. I believe Warned once said it sold 11 million and that looks the maximum it could've reached, looking at certifications.
Celebration sold +1,4 million copies according to Mediatraffic, counting weeks in their top 40 chart. The album has now sold that amount in European countries only! The total is growing fast, above 2.5 million without any doubts!
