    you're cool to give me these numbers, but I really want to see links...and not just any links, reliable and official links..

    @ MJ, 450,000 is really high I know, but Carlos Vives, back in the mid 90s sold an excess amount of 1,000,000 copies of his album and to date is the best-selling album in Colombia. Lets not forget that Platinum = 50,000, so receiving a 9x Platinum Award was probable. And Colombia's acts really sell well. Juanes received a Diamond Award = 200,000 for Mi Sangre, that would have been, over 500,000 back in the 90s.

    @ Jim, some of your numbers are outdated and you're only couting by certifications..not real sales

    Local acts in Colombia sell really well, for example La Vida es un Ratico was just certified 4xP (+80.000) and the albums has been out for 6 months. Diomedez Días has sold more than 15M copies only in Colombia. Carlos Vives 4.5M. Los Hermanos Zuleta 7M. La Sonora Matancera 4M. Juanes 2M. Shakira 4M. international acts don't sell that well.

    Remember that big sellers still big sellers regardingless of the period or the market size. Thriller sold 60m being released when the market was on a huge crisis, Laundry Service sold only 12m to be the best selling album of 2001, the biggest year ever for the music market. This shows how irrevelant the market declines/climbs are when we talk about best sellers.

    I still have see none accurate link about those supposed sales for Shakira or Carlos Vives. I don't say those sales are not true, but I haven't got a single evidence of it being true.

    The link quoting the figure of 450k for Pies Descalzos can't be considered as accurate since out of the 3 figures on it that we can verify, 2 are inflated (by 100%+).

    I have also never see an official chart of Colombia.

    The link is from a politics magazine, they focus on Colombia, they don't care about the other countries. I would trust the source for Colombia because is huge and very serious with its sources. Probably Sony Colombia gave the information wrong for the other countries. But several times on TV, news, journal describes the sucess of Shakira here. The web page that shows the singles chart for Colombia used to post the top 200 for albums, the web page hasn't published information about albums since january; but El Tiempo and El Colombiano journal give that information every sunday. The links about the artists (if you speak spanish, you will understand): Diomedes Diaz has sold more than 13M copies in Colombia http://www.estereofonica.com/article.php?sid=911.
    Escalona (from "Escalona" soap opera) is the most sold album in Colombia ever: http://www.colombialink.com/01_INDEX/in ... vives.html

    You should be careful with such links. In France, if you read articles, you will see that Johnny Hallyday sold over 100 million albums. Everybody believes it, they say it on every TV show etc... Then we started to get real informations, and the fact is that he sold at most 35 million.

    In this link about Diaz we read :

    En su carrera artística, Diomedes Díaz ha vendido más de 13 millones de copias, cifra que le ha servido para convertirlo en el artista más vendedor en toda la historia discográfica del país. 29 álbumes inéditos y varias compilaciones de éxitos le ha otorgado, 22 discos de Oro, 24 Discos de Platino, 1 Disco Cuádruplo Platino, 3 Discos Quíntuplo Platino, 1 Disco Séxtuplo Platino y 1 Disco de Diamante por ventas superiores al millón de copias

    First, Diamond is 500k not 1 million (well, Diamond award doesn't even really exist in Colombia). Then adding all certifications counting the highest possible level of awards :
    22 Oro - 22x25 = 550k
    24 Plat - 24x50 = 1200k
    1 4xP = 200k
    3 5xP = 750k
    1 6xP = 300k
    1 D = 500k

    Total : 550 + 1200 + 200 + 750 + 300 + 500 = 3500k. How has Diaz sold 13 million ? Certifications are up to only 3.5 million.

    Those articles are almost never correct, especially when the information is impossible to verify in the concerned country.

    Before 2000: Gold=30.000, Platinum=60.000, and much of his works if from the 80's and 90's. In the 00's he hasn't done that much because he has been sick for the last 7 years. Diamond acording to you doesn't exist, but it really does. It hasn't represent an amount of copies, Syco gives it in some point for not giving more certifications when the album sales still are healthy over the years

    It doesn't change much of the total, still around 4m. Even if it sold almost the next certification each time, that's 8 million at most.
    Also, the sources quoted look more like a fan site that a definitive accurate site.

    When we check real infos from labels, awards are always pretty low for Columbia. Worldwide blockbusters are barely Gold, Platinum when they are lucky. Even Spanish blockbusters have sales relatively week in Colombia ('Mas' only 100k, Miguel Bose or Luis Miguel sales are truly unimpressive as well). The Gold and Platinum status is always reached on more time than in Mexico for example, and albums aren't 9xPlatinum or more in Mexico.

    In this link about Diaz we read :

    En su carrera artística, Diomedes Díaz ha vendido más de 13 millones de copias, cifra que le ha servido para convertirlo en el artista más vendedor en toda la historia discográfica del país. 29 álbumes inéditos y varias compilaciones de éxitos le ha otorgado, 22 discos de Oro, 24 Discos de Platino, 1 Disco Cuádruplo Platino, 3 Discos Quíntuplo Platino, 1 Disco Séxtuplo Platino y 1 Disco de Diamante por ventas superiores al millón de copias

    First, Diamond is 500k not 1 million (well, Diamond award doesn't even really exist in Colombia). Then adding all certifications counting the highest possible level of awards :
    22 Oro - 22x25 = 550k
    24 Plat - 24x50 = 1200k
    1 4xP = 200k
    3 5xP = 750k
    1 6xP = 300k
    1 D = 500k

    Total : 550 + 1200 + 200 + 750 + 300 + 500 = 3500k. How has Diaz sold 13 million ? Certifications are up to only 3.5 million.

    Those articles are almost never correct, especially when the information is impossible to verify in the concerned country.
    Do you have Thriller's Platinum and Gold awards???
