        I don't give a F about who sells more, at the end of the day none of that money enters my pocket so why should i care?

            Why are you mad about SPS units though? Just a few pages ago you were extremely irritated when I used pure album sales receipts for Katy’s “Teenage Dream” instead of the SPS units total.

            However, most people will have the basic ability to realize that it's not the same at all
            .. And since when you’re mad at counting singles for artists’ popularity and stats?

            You’re always pointing out how Katy’s TD had 5 #1 singles and how big the era was thanks to it’s 5 #1 SINGLES

            .. But somehow today the narrative has changed and suddenly singles are overrated and album sales is what matters?

              A few countries in Europe won't make much difference, Taylor's dominance in China and Asian countries will only open the gap more. No one is denying Rihanna's success but to claim she sold more albums than Taylor is BS.

                Now Let’s do France, Germany, Ireland, and more than 20 European countries

                She sold more albums than Taylor in Europe and Latin America. Face it.

                  The only markets that matter would be France and Germany. Her sales in China alone would dwarf Rihanna's sales in Europe.

                  Plus those Grammy Awards that you love so much to mention when it comes to Katy Perry How many AOTY Grammy has Taylor won? Or don't they matter now they don't suit your intentions here?

                    BS. Rih sold more albums outside the US and it's not even close.

                      Lol, receipts?

                      How many times Rihanna topped IFPI's Top Global Artist list or had the best selling album of the year?

                          I used pure sales for both. Not sps units

                          Well Taylor has 10 Grammys and Rihanna has 9 Grammys. Very close.

                          Rihanna is a 9 time Grammy Award winner without even being American or white. A girl from Barbados, Impressive.

                                  • I will say that: Rihanna is as global as it gets, except for Anti. Especially when it compared to Taylor but it makes zero sense to suddenly stick to pure sales, and continue to do so while comparing 2012 Unapologetic to an album released in 2019 just because that's their respective 7th album. Also the 1989 total is much more impressive for an album released late 2014 than Loud's from 2010. If someone said Taylor sold more albums outside of the US they are wrong but when Taylor had her European breakthrough for example pure sales were actually already dying (Red was much bigger but still didn't catch up to Fearless)
