          Anyway the list is a mess. The list should've been units sold based only tbh
          god knows what random formula they used to calculate it to be honest. Normally they explain the methodology, no mention of that this time.

              Are you sure that would help? Billboard would never look at units sold like a fan, digital singles/songs would never be counted equally with full album units.

                Units sold is a much better way to track than chart runs and record sales is records sales. I don't car if it's .99 cent or 12 dollars. Someone invested their money into it.

                  Nothing wrong with charting sales, but you'd have to make conversions for it to mean anything. Selling a million albums is substantially more impressive than selling a million copies of a single song.

                    I am just genuinely interested in the methodology that they used. Like seriously I don't even care that Mariah came out ahead of Madonna. I mean they did a list for top artists of the hot 100 a while back and they had Madonna ahead of Mariah which literally made no sense at all. You would think Mariah would easily come out ahead of Madonna on the hot 100.

                        So 20 years down the line we shouldn't say ariana wasn't one of the biggest female artist of all times because most of her record sales will be streams? Times shift sis.

                            If her career holds up, the album equivalents will still be there. Look at the numbers that Lipa & Eilish pulled from a single record (and we don't even have the Apple Music numbers). Millions of album equivalents from just spotify, if they can keep that pace going there is no reason to lower the bar to prop them up.

                                Can we go over the back story to this song. I didn't even know they were a thing. Just confused that she drag him out of nowhere then he kinda cut her head off with his song.

                                    It's based on points, not sales. Points accumulated on Hot 100 and BB 200 charts. More point if you have more #1 hits or they spend more weeks at the top. Mariah has 18 #1 songs, plus her albums spent 30 weeks at the top, over Madonna's 20 weeks. Mariah ranks #6 while Madonna is #17 on BB 200 All Time Artists chart. That's why Mariah is the Top Female of All Time in US. Very well deserved ranking for the Kween.

                                          They must have given a very low weighting to singles. I mean Babs has hardly any singles in the hot 100 and she still managed to place 6th overall.

                                                    But ofc the 2000-2009 has the better #1
