That's with the RIAA. They been certifying albums since 1950s.

SoundScan only started in 1991.

I see. Cos I've been looking for Barbra's name on the first post.

Now I understand.

Thanks a lot. :)

^Doubt it.

Album sales have fallen.

Plus, he's not exactly releasing albums today. Where is his new studio album?? This would had been a perfect time for a new album.

Do you have a link to the source of that number?

The last confirmed number from June 2014:

https://www.yahoo.com/music/bp/chart-wa ... 25382.html

1. Eminem (45,160,000)

So Eminem has passed George Strait to be the 6th Best Selling Artist of the SoundScan Era.

All Time Country Artists

1. Garth Brooks 71M
2. George Strait 47M
3. Tim McGraw 44M
4, Alan Jackson 42M
5. Shania Tawin 35M
6. Toby Keith 31M
7. Reba McEntire 31M
8. Kenny Chesney 30M
9. Taylor Swift 30M
10. Dixie Chicks 28M

Heavily rounded numbers!
So we know Strait sold at least 46.5m. I don't think he sold much more than that, so both him and Eminem are probably very close.

^Thanks for the reminder.

That 47 million is probably a rounded figure. Strait could be at 46.7, 46.8 million, 46.9 million...

Is this a rounded number?

Metallica has also sold more than 56 million albums, a number bested by only Garth Brooks and The Beatles.

Billboard 200 Chart Moves: 'Hamilton' Cast Album Surpasses 1 Million in U.S. Sales
1/13/2017 by Keith Caulfield

Now, let’s take a closer look at some of the action on the latest Billboard 200 chart:

Further, Hamilton is only the ninth cast recording to sell a million since Nielsen began electronically tracking music sales in 1991. The top selling cast album in Nielsen’s history is the highlights edition of the original London cast recording of The Phantom of the Opera, with 4.97 million sold. (The complete recording of The Phantom of the Opera — which is tracked and charts separately — has sold 503,000 since 1991.)

Aside from The Phantom of the Opera (Highlights) and Hamilton, here are the other million-selling cast albums of the Nielsen era: the original Broadway cast recordings of Wicked (2.67 million), Les Miserables (1.65 million), Jersey Boys (1.44 million), Rent (1.28 million) and The Lion King (1.04 million), along with the original cast recording of Mamma Mia! (1.71 million) and the highlights edition of the complete symphonic recording of Les Miserables (1.03 million).

— Taylor Swift, 1989 - No. 88 — In the week ending Dec. 29, Taylor Swift’s 1989 album broke the 6 million threshold, and its sales (as of the week ending Jan. 5) now stand at 6.005 million. 1989 remains Swift’s second-biggest selling album, behind only Fearless, with 7.08 million. In total, Swift’s catalog of albums have sold 29.92 million.

Yes! Whitney almost top 5 with "Bodyguard".

Hopefully this year, Norah can hit top 10 again.

^ Whitney will never be top 5, and I'm pretty sure Norah's 2002 album won't sell 600k this year...

As for Madonna's career U.S. album sales since Nielsen Music began tracking retail in 1991 (through the week ending Dec. 8, 2016), here are her 10 best sellers:

5,992,000, The Immaculate Collection (1990)
3,891,000, Ray of Light (1998)
2,934,000, Music (2000)
2,336,000, Bedtime Stories (1994)
2,102,000, Something to Remember (1995)
2,025,000, Evita (soundtrack) (1996)
1,905,000, Erotica (1992)
1,734,000, Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005)
1,397,000, GHV2: Greatest Hits Volume 2 (2001)
751,000, Hard Candy (2008)

Meanwhile, Madonna's most recent LP, 2015's Rebel Heart, has sold 238,000.

Her career album sales in the Nielsen era stand at 28.5 million, making her the 34th-best-selling album artist in that 25-year-plus span.

She ranks at No. 7 among women in the stretch;

1. Mariah Carey (55 million)
2. Celine Dion (52.6 million)
3. Shania Twain (34.7 million)
4. Britney Spears (33.5 million)
5. Reba McEntire (30.5 million)
6. Taylor Swift (29.8 million)
7. Madonna (28.5 million)
8. Enya, (27.3 million)
I just want to be certain. Those figures are number of albums sold right? combined total of digital and physical albums?
