    ^ I think the Metallica number should read 58m - Billboard's typo, not yours

    In May 2014, their total was 54,365,000.

    Since then they released "Hardwired" which has sold 1.27m.

    Their self titled album from 1991 has sold 0.82m since May 2014.

    They've had 3 - 4 of their other albums on the weekly sales top 200 for the last 3 years or so.

    ^

    Absolutely right.

    Their soundscan total was already at 56.4 million in November 2016 (when Hardwired... came out).

    It actually crossed 58 million in July 2017.

    11 & 12 are Elvis (35,555,000 - July 2013) & Michael Jackson (34,723,000 - May 2014), though it's debatable which way round they are currently as they are both really strong catalog sellers.

    Here's my annual update of the Soundscan Era RTD list based on estimated sales to the end of 2018.
    The good news is we got quite a few updated official numbers in 2018 due to a couple of catalog chart and artist history leaks, the bad news that SoundScan appear to have "ditched" their totals from 1991 & 1992.
    Last year's numbers are on the previous page, and the footnotes to that post apply to this year's list as well.

    Taylor Swift's career U.S. album sales stand at 32.7 million.

    She's the 23rd-best-selling album artist since Nielsen Music began tracking sales in 1991

    ...and the fifth-best-selling woman:

    1. Mariah Carey (55.5 million)
    2. Celine Dion (53 million)
    3. Shania Twain (35 million)
    4. Britney Spears (33.6 million)
    5. Taylor Swift (32.7 million)

    Garth Brooks leads all artists with 72.4 million albums sold in that span.

    Most of Madonna’s and Barbra’s best selling albums pre-date Nielsen Soundscan (which started counting sales only since 1991), same goes for Whitney Houston as well.

    the first chart for which Nielsen Soundscan was used was May 25th 1991 yes most of Whitney's early certs for her first 3 albums were done prior to soundscan for example her debut album was certified 9 x platinum in 1988 her 2nd album was certified 6 x platinum in 1988 also and I'm Your Baby Tonight reached 3 x platinum on May 2nd 1991 same goes for Mariah Carey's self titled debut it was certified 5 x platinum April 29th 1991 also Barbara's had 8 Billboard 200 #1 albums from March 1974 to September 17th 2016 or 42 years 6 months
