All Soundscan stats, right? don't you have more exact numbers? :roll: There's 13 sigles showing 0.5 million and I'm sure that not all of them sold exactly 0.5, the first one may have sold 599k and the last on 501k , understand? :D

I find it incredible that "Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)" by Los Del Rio, was the highest selling record in the USA in 1996, even out selling Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise" the previous year.

Unfortunately no, that's all I've got, they were all rounded #'s. To your point, 0.6 means over 0.6 even 0.59 would conside 0.5, I know that, it seems quite a small discrepancy, but we have no choice...

Neslon, why don't you try to find 5 singles (yes 5)with sales of 250,000 (half of your figures) on 2003 and 2004?

That's is a very HARD work...

Thanks for the information!

Unfortunately I don't have those figures, it's not published in these few years (2001-2004) with singles sales ranking, even I knew the way to find Soundscan sales, but it's cost-consuming.

This is for all I know, if there's error, remind me, Thanks.

no "Tha Crossroads"?
What is "The Crossroad"? Who was the artist? Give me detail, please. BUT, this all rankings were from January to December each year. Some singles might have sold over 500,000, for example, from December, sold 300,000, to March, another 200,000, then, it's not eligible to get into ranking.

Hey Nelson, where did you find these figures? It's great information because usually, you don't get to see single figues...if you can, could you do me a favor and look up how many copies "Bootylicious" by Destiny's Child sold? Thank you!

Sorry, I can't help you with this issues, I just only got the Top selling singles over 500,000, that's all I've got, I don't have any SoundScan figures of particular artist or particular singles and albums, since it's cost-consuming to have those data. AND, to your question, "Bootylicious" was released in 2001, only Mariah Carey's "Loverboy" passed the 500,000 in 2001, and that's all I know. Hope you like my answer.
