                      Turkey- Donde Estan Los Ladrones 3x Platinum
                      Laundry Service 1x Platinum

                      This award is from March 2002. Laundry Service was the best-selling international album in 2002 and got certified 3x Platinum by the end of 2002.

                      Donde Estan Los Ladrones 7x Platinum


                      This award is when Ojos Asi was just hitting the radios, so the certification may have gone up, however, since there is no official link or picture depicting it, 7x Platinum it is. :(




                      Scandinavia - Laundry Service 1x Platinum for Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

                      This award was given when she still was in the charts. Back in Late 2002.


                      Germany Fijacion Oral gets a Platinum Award for over 200,000 copies sold in November

                      Derweil hat "Fijacion Oral Vol. 1" in Deutschland die 200.000er-Marke όberschritten und damit Platinstatus inne. Die Award-Verleihung fand im Rahmen des mittlerweile vierten (!) "Wetten Dass..?"-Auftritts der Sδngerin Anfang November in Mannheim statt.

                                Back then the market of Colombia was around 8 million units sold per year. To sell 1m there is like to sell 15 million in France :-?

                                You need to point out sources for such claims.

                                BTW, great thread Hello.

                                    Thanks. Can you point out your sources for Cyndi's figures as well ?

                                    BTW, can we really rely on this link, since the Argentinian database shows it at only 150k and since the album received an in-house award for sales of 350k in Mexico ? Both figures are more than doubled on this article, how can we be sure that the figure of Colombia is correct ? 450k in Colombia is like 45m in the US.

                                      The Cyndi figures is from Syco, i already sent the link, i have figures for many artists as well. The link I sent you is very confiable because Semana is the biggest politics magazine in Colombia, is part of El Tiempo journal, the biggest in Colombia, so you can trust the source. If you want to check it yourself go to the main page and you'll see is a serious publication.

                                        Ans sorry, I forgot, 450.000 for Pies Descalzos in Colombia is razonable, I am from Colombia and you don't know how was the fever for Shakira by the time of Pies Descalzos, it was huge and it is the 2nd biggest album in Colombia ever. And 450.000 in Colombia is not 45m in US. Foreign acts (non spanish speaking acts) don't sell well in Colombia, that you should know from your sourced, local acts sell a lot when they're popular, for example: La Vida es un Ratico was just certified 4xP (+80.000)

                                              you're cool to give me these numbers, but I really want to see links...and not just any links, reliable and official links..

                                              @ MJ, 450,000 is really high I know, but Carlos Vives, back in the mid 90s sold an excess amount of 1,000,000 copies of his album and to date is the best-selling album in Colombia. Lets not forget that Platinum = 50,000, so receiving a 9x Platinum Award was probable. And Colombia's acts really sell well. Juanes received a Diamond Award = 200,000 for Mi Sangre, that would have been, over 500,000 back in the 90s.

                                              @ Jim, some of your numbers are outdated and you're only couting by certifications..not real sales

                                                            Remember that big sellers still big sellers regardingless of the period or the market size. Thriller sold 60m being released when the market was on a huge crisis, Laundry Service sold only 12m to be the best selling album of 2001, the biggest year ever for the music market. This shows how irrevelant the market declines/climbs are when we talk about best sellers.

                                                            I still have see none accurate link about those supposed sales for Shakira or Carlos Vives. I don't say those sales are not true, but I haven't got a single evidence of it being true.

                                                            The link quoting the figure of 450k for Pies Descalzos can't be considered as accurate since out of the 3 figures on it that we can verify, 2 are inflated (by 100%+).

                                                            I have also never see an official chart of Colombia.

Lets not forget that Platinum = 50,000, so receiving a 9x Platinum Award was probable. And Colombia's acts really sell well. Juanes received a Diamond Award = 200,000 for Mi Sangre, that would have been, over 500,000 back in the 90s.
                                                              Remember that big sellers still big sellers regardingless of the period or the market size. Thriller sold 60m being released when the market was on a huge crisis, Laundry Service sold only 12m to be the best selling album of 2001, the biggest year ever for the music market. This shows how irrevelant the market declines/climbs are when we talk about best sellers.

                                                              I still have see none accurate link about those supposed sales for Shakira or Carlos Vives. I don't say those sales are not true, but I haven't got a single evidence of it being true.

                                                              The link is from a politics magazine, they focus on Colombia, they don't care about the other countries. I would trust the source for Colombia because is huge and very serious with its sources. Probably Sony Colombia gave the information wrong for the other countries. But several times on TV, news, journal describes the sucess of Shakira here. The web page that shows the singles chart for Colombia used to post the top 200 for albums, the web page hasn't published information about albums since january; but El Tiempo and El Colombiano journal give that information every sunday. The links about the artists (if you speak spanish, you will understand): Diomedes Diaz has sold more than 13M copies in Colombia http://www.estereofonica.com/article.php?sid=911.
                                                              Escalona (from "Escalona" soap opera) is the most sold album in Colombia ever: http://www.colombialink.com/01_INDEX/in ... vives.html
