Do you know which title are under-certified or over-certified?
It's based on a report of total shipment numbers from a sale date from member companies and certificates it.
A member company does not import Imports. Therefore, Imports are not included in the number that a member company reports it to.I know only latest TOP3.AutomaticBR wrote:mario, can u please post the latest list u got for the best-selling international artists EVER in Japan? for albums
12,430k Mariah Carey
8,940k The Beatles
also, i always tought that RIAJ's certifications included imports. if they don't, i don't see why Madonna's TIC would be certified Million and COAD 2x Platinum (500k), since it's sales (including imports) are around 390k to-date
