I agree with his estimation.

USA: 5.000.000
Canada: 400.000
Europe: about 1.000.000 copies
Japan: 500.000
Australia: 70.000
other certifications exist in other countries (Brazil, Mexico, S. Afrca etc.)

total : about 7.000.000-7.500.000
'Never Say Never' was certified 2x Platinum in Japan when Platinum was 200,000. 400,000 in Japan.

'Never Say Never' did at least 5.5 million in the US with record club sales. It scanned 4.5 million and sold 665,000 through BMG (as of 2003). I put her at 16.5 million worldwide, she's certainly sold no more than 17 million albums worldwide, regardless of whatever trumping up her label does to her figures.
So she is approximately at 17 million albums worldwide. All those crazy claims of 30 million albums don't make sense at all!

Why the hell would Brandy lie, when asked about her album sales. In an interview, she herself confirmed the numbers. She sais she has sold 25 million records. No estimations can do sh*t about it. If she says 25 million it is 25 million albums. So let's say she has sold 25 million albums plus approximately 10 million singles sold (which nobody will have a doubt about) and we have a total of almost 35 million. And even if it was for 15 million albums only, combined with the singles she'd still be at more than 25 million records. In comperison Aaliyah has sold 24 million albums. There is no way that Brandy who is still alive has sold less. Impossible.

Your reasoning is awful. Alliyah hasn't sold 24m albums either. And Brandy probably has sold 25m records, but she simply has NOT sold 25m albums

Brandy's certainly sold 25 million 'records' (albums + singles), but I don't believe she's sold 25 million albums alone.

These claims made by artist about their sales are moslty completely fake.Same for claims made by labels and official sites.
It's normal in the music business :wink:

Well I don't know about all those lable lies. Maybe I'm a little naive. But I still do believe her albums must at least have sold 20 million copies. Say she actually sold just 15mil albums: How can you lie about 10 additional million records? So I'm sure 20million albums plus 10million singles are a authentic number of records solds.

Which makes a total of about 30 million records sold worldwide.

PS: AyuM said Aaliyah sold 17 million and Brandy 15 million. That is in no way possible. Never ever.

I think Brandy sold 25 million records (albums and singles) total.

While Aaliyah sold over 20 million records total. Both 17 million albums separately.

It's possible her label could've shipped more to the store. I'm just basing the 1 million shipped to the one million sold.
