160 Coldplay & Rihanna Princess of China 2012 4 530,000
didn't expect stay to be that low compared to the others.
still, more than 9 million records sold with just 11 songs! only the Queen.
It is the most recent single in this list but also it was the only thing selling the album here for months so I'd say the balance between sales for Stay and Unapologetic are fair

Sales for divas managed by LA Reid

Reid, a true music man with impeccable ears, has served as Svengali to a long list of sirens during his stints at LaFace, Arista and IDJ, including Rihanna, Mariah Carey (whose career he revived with The Emancipation of Mimi), P!nk, Avril Lavigne, Toni Braxton and TLC.

Trainor’s moved more than 6m singles in addition to her 200k first-week albums (that’d be 800k TEA). P!nk’s sold 16m; Rihanna moved 10.2m; Carey’s Mimi sold 6m (and had her biggest first week up to that point); Lavigne sold 12m+; Braxton’s seen more than 15m in sales; and TLC moved in excess of 16m. All of these artists have been huge international sellers as well.

Don't you find the digital sales a little bit low? Do these include collabos? I thought she would be by 100M digial sales by now?

Aren't the digital sales too low? Thought she would be above 90m by now? Why did they include Jay Z collabos but not Rihanna's?

She has sold around 35 Million albums, the other 19 Million are probably shipments, a sold:shipped ratio of 2:3 is quite normal. Or it includes TEAs, who knows?

200M+ singles sound believable too since she passed 100 Million in the US alone a while ago.

For the singles i don't know, it's possible. For the albums even your 35M is totally over the edge. she is around 28-30M.
