    Hello,

    I am compiling the major certification/sales numbers for Shakira, Thalia, Paulina Rubio, & Jennifer Lopez and am missing information for the following five countries:

    Argentina
    Brazil (except for Shakira)
    Colombia
    Mexico
    Venezuela

    If anyone either has this information or could provide me with a website, etc. to find the info., I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    On a side note, in Latin America, which of the three artists (Paulina Rubio, Shakira or Thalia) is most popular as a solo artist? I had always thought Thalia was the most popular singer of the three until I realized how many albums Paulina has sold in U.S. and Europe.

    Paulina Rubio is not very well known in Brasil... I'm 99% sure that none of her albums reached even Gold.

    Thalia is very popular in here, but I only have figures for 2 of her releases:

    En Extasis 500.000 (2x Platinum)
    Thalia 2003 125.000 (Platinum) #1

    Jennifer Lopez isn't that popular as Thalia, and I only know this for her:

    J.Lo 150.000 (Gold) (taken from a Sony advertising in a Music magazine)
    This is me... then 50.000 (Gold)

    And for Shakira, her shipments (she's HUGE in here, specially in the "Pies descalzos" era, when she even re-released the album with Portuguese - the speaking language in Brasil - versions of some songs)...

    Pies descalzos 2.105.000 (8x Platinum)
    The Renixes 102.000 (Gold)
    Donde estan los ladrones 524.000 (2x Platinum)
    MTV Unplugged 135.000 (Gold)
    Laundry service 872.000 (3x Platinum)
    Greatest hits 36.000 (sales of 2003 only - the album was released around september if I'm not mistaken)

    Thanks for the info! Shakira is really popular in Brazil. In the U.S., the Portuguese versions of Estoy Aqui, Pies Descalzos and Un Poco De Amor are on the Remixes CD, instead of Pies Descalzos. As I love all of those Portuguese songs, I would be thrilled if she included another Portuguese version on one of her new albums.

    Thalia has only sold 7 million albums worldwide. She started her career 25 years ago!!!! tha'ts old...she is not very popular around the world.....I have heard some of her music but...they suck!

    Paulina Rubio is not as big as Thalia..she has sold only 5 million copies....Thalia and Paulina Rubio are enemies to death although they were in the same group....they are just marketing..both "singers" release one or two cds per year so it is really hard to tell how many albums they sell in each country...they don't get to gold..not even in USA..which is their biggest market!..they have released over 25 albums! :evil:

    As for Shakira..that's another story. In Latin America she sold over 4 million copies of her first album ( Magia and Peligro don't count since she only relesed them in Colombia)..and she is the only one two have sold in Latin AMerica over 12 million copies with only 3 albums.She sold over 2 million in Brazil, 5x Platinum in USA ( Platinum in the Latin Market is 1,000,000 so she sold over 1,600,000 in USA)...and this is just her fisrt album.

    hum...some of these numbers really seem thought out...e.g. Portugal - Platinum is 40 000, so 4*P is 160 000, not 400 000...in Greece Plat is 20 000, not 75 000?? in Hungary, it's 20 000, not 50 000 for Plat, Austria it's 30 000, so 2*Plat would be 60 000, not 120 000...Poland - Gold is 20 000, not 50 000 and so on and so on...and where did you find certifications for Czech Republic or for Egypt ??

    I can't verify the certifications with links, but when Shakira's concert was announced there was a press release that listed the following certifications for Laundry Service as of 9/25/02 (it had sold 9 million copies as of that time) and had been certified as follows:

    Gold in Brazil, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, Hungary, Japan, Malaysia, Peru, Philipines, South Africa, Uruguay

    I am not perfect..I got this info from a lot of sources including sony....my dear chris, in poland platinum is 100,000 so gold has to be 50,000. and i got all this certification info from people in this forums so lets not argue. Thank you.

    Now, those sales are only when she was in the top 40..so 10,000,000 to 12,000,000 is not a lot of difference since she stayed in the top 100 for almost 2 years. Okay

    Hi hello,

    For the countries where our numbers differed, below are the links to the places I found the certifications for Laundry Service:

    Europe:
    Austria: They just took down the Austria site, but here is the reference I used for the certification level in Austria: http://forums.ukmix.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17241
    Belgium: http://www.scarlet.be/ultratop/en/yearl ... &year=2003
    Denmark: http://www.hit-listen.dk/ (Uge 28-02) for Platinum. This is just a Top-40 chart. It could have gone double-platinum outside the chart.
    France: http://www.disqueenfrance.com/certifica ... 3&annee=20
    Hungary: http://www.mahasz.hu/m/en/aranyplatina.php
    Switzerland: You were right. Should be 5xPlatinum and 200,000.
    Italy: I got this information from this forum: http://forums.ukmix.net/forums/viewtopi ... 8&start=25
    Greece and Portugal: There seems to be some dispute over the certification levels. Here's the link where it's discussed. Your numbers are probably more accurate than mine. http://forums.ukmix.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17241
    UK: http://www.bpi.co.uk/platinum/platinumr ... r_id=30580

    Rest of the World:
    This is the post I used for certification levels in general - http://forums.ukmix.net/forums/viewtopic.php?t=17241

    Uruguay's certification levels are: http://www.cudisco.org/premios.htm

    Canada: http://www.cria.ca/cert_db_search.php
    Brazil: See AutomaticBR's post above.
    Mexico: http://forums.ukmix.net/forums/viewtopi ... &start=275
    Japan: See Japan's Sales in this forum (page 3-5).

    As for the certifications in the other Asian and Latin American Countries, yours are probably more accurate than mine. My information was from the 9/02 press release and may not be the most accurate.

    That is a lie!!!!!Her first album was back in the early 90s which sold less than 100,000. Amor A La Mexicana has only sold 700,000 copies. She has NEVER reached the 3,000,000 million in any of her albums, In Fact, none of her albums has reached 2,000,000

    Well, platinum at 100,000 in Poland?? That must have been a long time ago. At present the situation looks as follows:
    for Polish artists: gold = 35,000; platinum = 70,000
    for international acts: gold = 20,000; platinum = 40,000

    Shakira's "Laundry Service" was certified gold on the 5th June 2002 and received platinum in December that same year. However I'm not sure what were the certification levels back then, supposedly higher than now

    First of all, I thought you said her fisrt album sold more than 200,000...be consistent.

    Second of all, learn how to speak English.

    Third and last you and your Mexican can go to you know where......."a la mierda"...I learned this phrase just now! Mexicanillo!

    These figures are high, Mexico and Brazil together are 90% of the market.

    Thalia's all time total is 7 mi copies sold worldwide. I highly doubt she was able to sell 3 mi of just one album... Before crossing over to the american market, Thalia was only known in latin-america and a few asian countries, so your estimate is certainly inflated...

    BTW, Thalia's english debut just managed to sell 1 mi copies around the world...

    Aight yall hating on my girl Paulina and I cannot let that happen....

    Okay she has sold WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than Thalia, just her last album alone 'Pau-Latina' has sold over a million copies:

    Con una trayectoria de casi dos décadas en el ambiente artístico, Paulina Rubio ha vendido un millón de copias de su último disco, "Paulatina".
    From http://www.terra.com.uy/canales/farandula/7/7852.html

    Now the English album sold 1 and a half million copies, but that was now, in this article it said it sold 1 million with the first two singles alone:

    Después del tremendo éxito de su primer álbum en inglés, Border girl, con el que ha triunfado en medio mundo y ha vendido más de un millón de copias con sólo dos sencillos, se prepara para un nuevo reto: su primera gira mundial.
    From: http://www.cadena40.es/articulo.html?xr ... e=20021220

    Now her album "Paulina" the one before the english one sold over 2 million copies.

    También ha presentado un programa en nuestra tele, “Vive el verano”, y ha triunfado en todas las radios y transistores que están en funcionamiento. De su disco, “Paulina”, ha vendido 2 millones de copias y lo ha traducido al inglés.
    From: http://www.portalmix.com/famosos/paulinarubio/

    Now Thats over 4.5 millions, now I dunno if you add her previous albums wat you can sum up:

    Con una lírica definitivamente juvenil, un año más tarde ve la luz "24 Kilates" que en poco tiempo se convierte en disco de platino. Con más de 300 mil unidades vendidas, su segundo larga duración duplica la venta del anterior.
    Above it states that her album 24 Kilates in the mid 90's sold 300 000.

    From http://paulinarubio.yaia.com/biografia.html

    Now her first album sold 300 000:

    1992. Su primer álbum, La chicha dorada -grabado en España, y producido y dirigido por Miguel Blasco-, fue un gran éxito y temas como Nío, Amor de mujer y Sabor a miel llegaron a los primeros lugares de las listas. De ese trabajo se vendieron 300.000 copias. En la telenovela Baila conmigo, Paulina encarnó a una niña rica y engreída.
    From: http://www.los40.com/artistas/biografia ... p_id=26847

    Her second album sold 150 000

    Presentó su segundo álbum en solitario, 24 kilates, nuevamente grabado en España con Miguel Blasco como productor. Incluía temas como Nieva nieva, Él me engañó o Asunto de dos. A las tres semanas de su lanzamiento ya superaba las 150.000 copias vendidas.
    From: http://www.los40.com/artistas/biografia ... p_id=26847

    I couldn't find more info about her other albums from the 90's but if you add those up that would be: 4.75 Million albums, now I am sure she has sold more than that, if you consider that her last album sold 1 million by last October, and now the promo for that cd is over, and she had another #1 "Dame Otro Tequila" so I dare to say she has sold more than 5 million....

    I am VERY sure Thalia hasn't sold more than 5 million, but well if you can prove me wrong....
