^oldbloke would have updated figures for 2010-2013 in his "Decade Chart" in the 2015 YTD thread.

First post is updated.

I just realized that 25 sold 10 times more than the #10 album (One Direction's Made In The AM) :lol: which btw should be out of the top 10 in a few weeks, replaced by Twenty One Pilots.

I see no album sales update for Beyoncé's Dangerously in love

Beyoncé's Dangerously in love album has crossed the 5M mark according to billboard Soundscan, some months ago

^ The pre-2006 lists are mostly based on certifications, I only added "(x million)" when there was a big difference between the certification and actual sales, or to justify the rankings. I can see why it would be confusing though :P

I get that, and I see you've got some with their updated album sales in brackets. I just didn't see one for Dangerously in love, since billboard posted updated sales. There's definitely a difference in scanned album sales of 5M compared to an outdated 4x certification.

A difference is still a difference, no matter how big or small.

A million is still a difference. 5X >>>>>4X

But adding "(5 million)" to a 4xp album would be ridiculous since I might as well replace certifications with actual sales, which obviously would be a lot of work. Again I see why it'd be confusing, maybe I should add some sort of disclaimer to the first post...

I've updated the first post of this thread, so I figured I'd also post this :

Top 10 releases of 2015.
As of 15/12/2016 :

01 ADELE - 25 16,000 9,124,000
02 JUSTIN BIEBER - Purpose 4,000 1,812,000

^ Not for long though :lol: I'll try to update it in the next couple of weeks, after that things should get pretty static...

About the first post, I've noticed that, including Destiny's Child, Beyoncé now has 7 albums listed, I believe the only artists to have more are :

The Beatles - 18
Elvis Presley - 15
Frank Sinatra - 11 (+ at least 3 pre-1956 albums)
Garth Brooks - 8
Don Henley - 8 (including 7 Eagles albums)
The Rolling Stones - 8
Paul Simon - 8 (including 7 Simon & Garfunkel albums)

The Beach Boys, Eminem and Led Zeppelin also have 7.

The Top-Selling Albums of 2016

Yahoo Music Paul Grein Yahoo MusicDecember 19, 2016

3. Beyoncé, ‘Lemonade’
The critically acclaimed surprise album has sold 1,527,000 copies since its release in April. This is the eighth time Beyoncé has had an album in the year’s top 10 (counting two albums she recorded with Destiny’s Child). She’s the only artist in the Nielsen Music era who can make that claim. This is Beyoncé’s highest ranking to date. Her former personal best was shared by 'Dangerously in Love' (No. 6 for 2003) and 'Beyoncé' (No. 6 for 2014). 'Lemonade' was nominated for a Grammy for Album of the Year. TEA rank: No. 3.

^ I'm not sure what your point is, but in case you're not aware, "Beyoncé" (2013) was the 8th best selling album of 2013 and the 6th best selling album of 2014, hence the "eight times" Paul Grein is talking about.
