    • Top Ten's per Decade




    The Tens 2010-2019

    RIAA shipments

    2011 - Adele - 21 - 10m
    2010 - Taylor Swift - Speak Now - 4m
    2012 - Taylor Swift - Red - 4m
    2010 - Eminem - Recovery - 3m
    2010 - Lady Antebellum - Need You Now - 3m
    2010 - Justin Bieber - My World 2.0 - 3m
    2010 - Susan Boyle - The Gift - 3m

    Soundscan

    2011 - Adele - 21 - 10,396,000 feb 2013
    2010 - Eminem - Recovery - 4,401,000 feb 2013
    2010 - Taylor Swift - Speak Now - 4,312,000 feb 2013
    2010 - Lady Antebellum - Need You Now - 3,970,000 feb 2013
    2012 - Taylor Swift - Red - 3,436,000 feb 2013
    2010 - Justin Bieber - My World 2.0 - 3,263,000 feb 2013
    2011 - Michael Buble - Christmas - 3,077,000 feb 2013

    6 of the 7 titles are on both lists. Susan Boyle hasn't reached 3m on soundscan and the Michael Buble album hasn't been certified at all.
    Even at this early stage in the decade it is difficult to see any album beating Adele. First, it is still selling - second, downloads of individuals songs are far greater than complete albums - and third, all the older artists (like The Beatles) are very unlikely to have 10 million selling new compilations.


    The Noughties 2000 - 2009

    RIAA shipments

    2000 - The Beatles - One - 11m
    2000 - N'Sync - No Strings - 11m
    2002 - Norah Jones - Come Away - 10m
    2000 - Eminem - Marshall Mathers - 10m
    2002 - Eminem - Eminem Show - 10m
    2004 - Usher - Confessions - 10m
    2000 - Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory - 10m
    2001 - Britney Spears - Ooops - 10m
    2000 - Nelly - Country Grammar - 9m
    2005 - Nickelback - All the Right Reasons - 8m

    Soundscan

    2000 - The Beatles - One - 12,161,000 feb 2013
    2000 - N'Sync - No Strings - 11,140,000 feb 2013
    2002 - Norah Jones - Come Away - 10,913,000 feb 2013
    2000 - Eminem - Marshall Mathers - 10,678,000 feb 2013
    2002 - Eminem - Eminem Show - 10,156,000 feb 2013
    2004 - Usher - Confessions - 10,075,000 feb 2013
    2000 - Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory - 10,058,000 feb 2013
    2001 - Britney Spears - Ooops - 9,210,000 feb 2013
    2000 - Nelly - Country Grammar - 8,534,000 feb 2013
    2003 - 50 Cent - Get Rich - 8,179,000 feb 2013

    9 titles appear on both lists.

    A very contempary look to the chart except for the Beatles.

    Nothing in this decade so far has sold anything like stuff in previous years - that is 20m plus - and doesn't look likely to.

    Ironically, N'Sync's No Strings had the biggest ever calender sale in US record history in the year 2000 selling 9,936,104 copies. That figure may never be beaten.

    1986 - Metallica - Master Of Puppets - 4,768,000 feb 2013

    Only 4 titles appear on both lists.

    The riaa list reflects the decade - lots of rock music, MTV and no new country.

    The soundscan list reflects what still sells from that decade - lots of rock music. The odd one out is the exceptional performance of Bob Marley. Will Island or whoever own it now, please re-certify this album.

    N.B. - Will Columbia and Polydor stop messing around and get Dark Side of the Moon and the Grease soundtrack properly certified.

    1968 - Frank Sinatra - Greatest Hits - 1,946,000 sep 2007

    8 titles appear on both lists.

    The 2 that don't (Sinatra and Charlie Brown) are both undercertified.

    In the 60's (going backwards) we find the first appearance of Christmas Albums.

    Obviously this is The Beatles decade, but they don't have things all their own way.

    A big surprise is the complete absence of rock music from that time. Led Zeppelin II is there, but was released right at the end of the decade and so almost belongs in the 70's.
    The first albums by Jimi Hendrix and The Doors are candidates. However, the Hendrix catalogue has such byzantine complexity that it would impossible to total the sales of an album on all those different labels. Elektra always claimed that a number of years of The Doors sales were "lost".


    The 1950's

    RIAA Shipments

    1957 - Elvis Presley - Christmas Album - 3m + 10m re-issue
    1958 - Elvis Presley - Golden Records Vol One - 6m
    1958 - Johnny Mathis - Merry Christmas - 5m
    1959 - Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue - 4m
    1956 - Original Cast - My Fair Lady - 3m
    1958 - Johnny Mathis - Greatest Hits - 3m
    1956 - Soundtrack - Oklahoma - 2m

    Soundscan

    1959 - Miles Davis - Kind Of Blue - 3,307,000 feb 2013
    1958 - Elvis Presley - Golden Records - 1,356,000
    1957 - Elvis Presley - Christmas Album - 1,020,000

    This is the story of the Tortoise and the Hare. The Miles Davis album probably sold as much in 2012 as it did on initial release in 1959. No other 50's title is in the same ballpark. It is also the only Original Studio album to feature - everything else is Christmas/Greatest Hits.

    In 1956, Elvis's first album was the biggest selling album of the year selling 300,000 copies! Compare that to the nearly 10 million copies sold by N'Sync's No Strings in 2000 - over 30 times the amount.

    1950's albums still sell, although at low levels, and both Elvis and Johnny Mathis have 7 gold albums from that period now, with 6 for Frank Sinatra.

    In addition, compilations from that era can sell considerably. The Complete 50's Sessions Box Set by Elvis shipped over 400,000. A recent set of Sinatra's 50's material is platinum as is Hank Williams' Greatest Hits.

    A few of the Christmas albums from the 1950's have also sold consistently well, maybe close to 1m copies. Unfortunately we lack the soundscan data.


    1900 - 1949?

    OK, no riaa or soundscan figures for albums actually released then. Proper albums only appeared from 1947 onwards - before that they were box sets of 78 rpm records.

    However, like the 1950's, material from this time still sells in the form of re-issues.

    The Robert Johnson 2CD box from the 1930's went platinum, and material by artists like Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Bing Crosby, Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Glenn Miller and dozens of others from the mists of time sells fine on CD. Anyone got soundscan information on these!!

    One certain million seller is Bing Crosby's Christmas Album released in 1949, but several of his albums are so titled but with different tracks - so it is impossible to pin down sales of the "original".

    Top Selling Albums - Soundscan Era

    Key
    Year
    Total Sales at End of that Year
    One Year Sales


    1) - Come On Over - Shania Twain (1997)

    1997 - 1.6m - 1,600,000 sold in 1997
    1998 - 6,492,526 - 4,900,000 sold in 1998
    1999 - 12,110,660 - 5,618,134 sold in 1999
    2000 - 13,652,045 - 1,541,385 sold in 2000
    2001 - 14,147,017 - 494,972 sold in 2001
    2002 - 14,490,470 - 343,453 sold in 2002
    2003 - 14,896,911 - 406,441 sold in 2003
    2004 - 15,267,050 - 370,139 sold in 2004
    2005 - 15,355,000 - 87,950 sold in 2005
    2006 - 15,408,533 - 53,533 sold in 2006
    2007 - 15,449,000 - 40,467 sold in 2007
    2008 - 15,473,000 - 24,000 sold in 2008

    Will this still be Top Dog at the end of 2009? Will be neck and neck for sure.


    2) - Metallica - Metallica (1991)

    1991 - 3.4m - 3,400,000 sold in 1991
    1992 - 6.0m - 2,600,000 sold in 1992
    1993 - n/a
    1994 - n/a
    1995 - n/a
    1996 - n/a
    1997 - n/a
    1998 - n/a
    1999 - 11,715,533
    2000 - 12,441,854 - 726,321 sold in 2000
    2001 - 12,981,888 - 540,034 sold in 2001
    2002 - 13,332,320 - 350,432 sold in 2002
    2003 - 13,803,308 - 470,988 sold in 2003
    2004 - 14,213,000 - 409,692 sold in 2004
    2005 - 14,545,000 - 332,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 14,819,905 - 274,905 sold in 2006
    2007 - 15,077,000 - 257,095 sold in 2007
    2008 - 15,319,000 - 242,000 sold in 2008

    Annual sales declining of course but ever so slowly - certainly more slowly than the general drop in album sales. An incredibly resilient performance. Can it reach the top in 12 months time? Very likely. The band will be touring heavily this year. Once it gets to #1 what could possibly challenge it in future?


    3) - Jagged Little Pill - Alanis Morissette (1995)

    1995 - 4.2m - 4,200,000 sold in 1995
    1996 - 11.6m - 7,380,000 sold in 1996
    1997 - 12.7m - 1,100,000 sold in 1997
    1998 - 13.2m - 500,000 sold in 1998
    1999 - 13,542,393 - 342,393 sold in 1999
    2000 - 13,729,828 - 187,435 sold in 2000
    2001 - 13,890,054 - 160,226 sold in 2001
    2002 - 14,094,425 - 204,371 sold in 2002
    2003 - 14,200,822 - 106,397 sold in 2003
    2004 - 14,343,000 - 142,178 sold in 2004
    2005 - 14,453,000 - 110,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 14,513,313 - 60,313 sold in 2006
    2007 - 14,557,000 - 43,687 sold in 2007
    2008 - 14,607,000 - 50,000 sold in 2008

    Not a bad performance here - sales are up! Lack of a Greatest Hits helps. Will never move up the list - but may never move down either. Nothing on any horizon to catch it.


    4) - Millenium - Back Street Boys (1999)

    1999 - 9,445,732 - 9,445,732 sold in 1999
    2000 - 11,705,375 - 2,259,643 sold in 2000
    2001 - 11,971,132 - 265,757 sold in 2001
    2002 - 12,030,804 - 59,672 sold in 2002
    2003 - 12,056,675 - 25,871 sold in 2003
    2004 - 12,069,000 - 12,325 sold in 2004
    2005 - 12,083,000 - 14,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 12,091,491 - 8,491 sold in 2006
    2007 - 12,099,000 - 7,509 sold in 2007
    2008 - 12,104,000 - 5,000 sold in 2008

    This album is so over.


    5) - Whitney Houston - The Bodyguard (1992)

    1992 - 3.3m - 3,300,000 sold in 1992
    1993 - 8.8m - 5,500,000 sold in 1993
    1994 - n/a
    1995 - n/a
    1996 - n/a
    1997 - n/a
    1998 - n/a
    1999 - 11,605,690
    2000 - 11,655,923 - 50,233sold in 2000
    2001 - 11,689,093 - 33,170sold in 2001
    2002 - 11,714,440 - 25,347sold in 2002
    2003 - 11,741,779 - 27,339sold in 2003
    2004 - 11,761,999 - 20,220sold in 2004
    2005 - 11,778,000 - 16,001sold in 2005
    2006 - 11,789,552 - 11,552 sold in 2006
    2007 - 11,798,000 - 8,448 sold in 2007
    2008 - 11,805,000 - 7,000 sold in 2008

    Once an album drops below 10,000 a year it has to be officially declared dead.


    6) - The Supernatural - Santana (1999)

    1999 - 4,732,589 - 4,732,589 sold in 1999
    2000 - 10,590,413 - 5,857,824 sold in 2000
    2001 - 10,961,112 - 370,699 sold in 2001
    2002 - 11,165,842 - 204,370 sold in 2002
    2003 - 11,333,627 - 167,785 sold in 2003
    2004 - 11,437,000 - 103,373 sold in 2004
    2005 - 11,530,000 - 93,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 11,588,453 - 58,453 sold in 2006
    2007 - 11,643,000 - 54,547 sold in 2007
    2008 - 11,673,000 - 30,000 sold in 2008

    Seemed set to reach the 12 million mark at one point, but no longer.


    7) - Human Clay - Creed (1999)

    1999 - 2.1m - 2,100,000 sold in 1999
    2000 - 8.7m - 6,600,000 sold in 2000
    2001 - 10,490,972 - 1,850,000 sold in 2001
    2002 - 11,078,203 - 587,231 sold in 2002
    2003 - 11,291,067 - 212,864 sold in 2003
    2004 - 11,422,000 - 130,933 sold in 2004
    2005 - 11,463,000 - 41,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 11,483,557 - 20,557 sold in 2006
    2007 - 11,504,000 - 20,443 sold in 2007
    2008 - 11,525,000 - 21,000 sold in 2008

    Can you spot when they released a Greatest Hits? Mind you, what a consistent (if low level) performance in the past 3 years. However it is the weakest sales of all the rock albums in the Top 10.

    8) - One - The Beatles (2000)

    2000 - 5,068,300 - 5,068,000 sold in 2000
    2001 - 7,978,300 - 2,910,000 sold in 2001
    2002 - 8.67m - 686,832 sold in 2002
    2003 - 9.23m - 564,868 sold in 2003
    2004 - 9.83m - 657,000 sold in 2004
    2005 - 10.37m - 540,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 10,821,222 - 451,222 sold in 2006
    2007 - 11,097,000 - 275,778 sold in 2007
    2008 - 11,345,000 - 248,000 sold in 2008

    Moves up one place to #8 and is the best performer in the Top 10, just edging Metallica. It is a much more recent release, of course. Might overtake Creed this year and (in time) Santana, Whitney and BSB. But looks like it will never disturb the Top 3


    9) - No Strings Attached - N'Sync (2000)

    2000 - 9,936,104 - 9,936,104 sold in 2000
    2001 - 10,891,514 - 955,410 sold in 2001
    2002 - 11,023,057 - 131,543 sold in 2002
    2003 - 11,069,789 - 46,732 sold in 2003
    2004 - 11,085,000 - 15,211 sold in 2004
    2005 - 11,093,000 - 8,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 11,099,051 - 6,051 sold in 2006
    2007 - 11,104,000 - 4,949 sold in 2007
    2008 - 11,109,000 - 5,000 sold in 2008

    Seems 5,000 sales is the rock bottom for this and the BSB's one.


    10) - Falling Into You - Celine Dion (1996)

    1996 - 6m - 6,000,000 sold in 1996
    1997 - 9m - 3,000,000 sold in 1997
    1998 - 9,640,000 - 640,000 sold in 1998
    1999 - 10,224,282 - 584,282 sold in 1999
    2000 - 10,357,969 - 133,687 sold in 2000
    2001 - 10,438,190 - 80,221 sold in 2001
    2002 - 10,525,873 - 87,683 sold in 2002
    2003 - 10,614,005 - 88,132 sold in 2003
    2004 - 10,683,000 - 68,995 sold in 2004
    2005 - 10,728,000 - 45,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 10,752,658 - 24,658 sold in 2006
    2007 - 10,768,000 - 15,342 sold in 2007
    2008 - 10,777,000 - 9,000 sold in 2008

    Sales not holding up at all for this title. Her Top 10 place could be vulnerable to Norah Jones eventually.


    11) - Baby One More Time - Britney Spears (1999)

    1999 - 8,358,619 - 8,358,619 sold in 1999
    2000 - 9,981,434 - 1,622,815 sold in 2000
    2001 - 10,269,049 - 287,615 sold in 2001
    2002 - 10,416,070 - 147,021 sold in 2002
    2003 - 10,472,878 - 56,808 sold in 2003
    2004 - 10,507,000 - 34,122 sold in 2004
    2005 - 10,519,000 - 12,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 10,525,000 - 6,000 sold in 2006
    2007 - tbc

    Virtually stopped selling and overtaken by The Beatles in 2006 losing it's place in the Top 10.

    12) - Norah Jones - Come Away With Me

    10,296,000 jan 2008

    A new entry. Will add historical figures when I have them. Still selling strongly so should overtake Britney within 12-18 months.


    13) - Cracked Rear View Mirror - Hootie/Blowfish (1995)

    1995 - 7m - 7,000,000 sold in 1995
    1996 - 8.7m - 1,700,000 sold in 1996
    1997 - n/a
    1998 - 9.7m

    2001 - n/a
    2002 - n/a
    2003 - n/a
    2004 - 10,058,000
    2005 - 10,103,000 - sold 45,000 in 2005
    2006 - 10,123,000 - sold 20,000 in 2006
    2007 - tbc


    14) - Titanic - Soundtrack (1998)

    1998 - 9,330,000 - 9,330,000 sold in 1998
    1999 - 9,806,175 - 476,175 sold in 1999
    2000 - 9,897,900 - 91,725 sold in 2000
    2001 - 9,960,000 - 62,100 sold in 2001
    2002 - n/a
    2003 - n/a
    2004 - 10,057,000
    2005 - 10,076,000 - 19,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 10,096,000 - 20,000 sold in 2006
    2007 - tbc

    Sold only 20k in 2006, but enough to move up one place. Pushed back down to 14th in 2007 by Norah Jones.


    15) - Back Street Boys - Back Street Boys (1997)

    1997 - 1.3m - 1,300,000 sold in 1997
    1998 - 7m - 5,700,000 sold in 1998
    1999 - 9,258,265 - 2,300,000 sold in 1999
    2000 - n/a
    2001 - n/a
    2002 - n/a
    2003 - n/a
    2004 - 10,074,000
    2005 - 10,084,000 - 10,000 sold in 2005
    2006 - 10,091,000 - 7,000 sold in 2006
    2007 - tbc

    Sales were so poor that is was overtaken by Titanic in 2006 and Norah Jones in 2007.


    16) - Marshall Mathers - Eminem (2000)

    2000 - 7,922,000 - 7,922,000 sold in 2000
    2001 - n/a
    2002 - n/a
    2003 - n/a
    2004 - n/a
    2005 - 9,919,000
    2006 - 10,010,000 - sold 91,000 in 2006
    2007 - tbc

    A new entry in 2006.


    So 16 albums have scanned more than 10,000,000 in US stores.


    None of the albums over 9m soundscan look likely to reach the 10m mark in 2008.

    Sure, I've had a look at her catalogue and I'll take that figure. Will add to list.

    Many thanks Zuzu.

    Many thanks whyme. Because all this information is in fragments and from many different sources, it really does take a long time to put together.

    I've nothing ready on yearly sales immediately, but will continue to work on it until there is more to present.

    I don't have No Doubt yearly sales to hand, but if I find any I'll post them for you.

    Thanks for your appreciation Fedepeti. I've Part Three to post as soon as figures are ready.

    By the way, well done with your help on the Rolling Stones thread by scalcioffa. Do you have any information from South America for that thread? The Stones sold plenty of tickets for River Plate, do they sell many albums there?

    By the way, well done with your help on the Rolling Stones thread by scalcioffa. Do you have any information from South America for that thread? The Stones sold plenty of tickets for River Plate, do they sell many albums there?
    They are very big here, and the most famous artist among the young people: 15-25 years old boys and girls with Stones t-shirts, gangs of Stones fans hanging around in the streets and hundreds of local bands "a la Rolling Stones".
    With that amazing fan base, every album since Flashpoint made the Top 4 here.
    We don't have Rap here, that music is trash for the 90% of the country. The same goes for country and 80% of the Billboard Hot 100.
    The taste of music here is like the 70's.

    Look the current Top 10 Airplay in Argentina:
    tw / lw / wks on chart / artist-song
    1 2 9 DIEGO TORRES Y VICENTICO - Usted (LATIN)
    2 6 7 CHAYANNE - Contra vientos y mareas (LATIN)
    3 1 24 ARBOL - Pequeños sueños (Stones clone)
    4 7 11 GREEN DAY - Boulevard of broken dreams
    5 12 7 U2 - Sometimes you can't make it on your own
    6 3 13 BAHIANO - Oyelo (Stones clone)
    7 5 15 JUANES - Volverte a ver (LATIN)
    8 4 24 CATUPECU MACHU - Magia veneno (Stones' clone)
    9 8 15 ATTAQUE 77 - Arrancacorazones (Stones' clone)
    10 9 17 ROBBIE WILLIAMS - Misunderstood

    I wish I did have the Bee Gees figures juan. If I find them they'll get posted here.

    Ask Hanboo on his US chart thread - I think he has figures on their last 3 releases.

    SNF has probably sold 3.5 to 4.5m but I have no definite figure.

    However, if you look at their releases since 1991 and their back catalogue before that, it is unlikely that their total soundscan figure would be more than 10 million. I'll keep looking for the figures, though.

    Thanks scalcioffa - you've highlighted the most important factor in any figures and statistics - the detail! Trouble is, that's what takes the time.

    A small table of figures may take days to complete as you research every figure and date. It's worth it, because the foundations are then always very strong and you can build on them with confidence.

    Will post Part Three soon.

    This is a companion to my thread that deals with All Time USA sales. A mix of the latest riaa awards, soundscan figures per album and record club sales it covers all Top Selling Albums exceeding 5 million sales and all the Best Selling Double Albums exceeding 250,000 sales and can be found at

    https://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.p ... 47&start=0

    In this case, we are dealing with albums scanned in US stores from 25th March 1991. This uses all the figures I amassed that were not appropriate to the other thread.

    NOTE - a drop in some figures between sep 2005 and dec 2005 is due to a change in compilation methods.

    Historical Totals - Top Selling Artists - Soundscan Era

    Top Five Bands

    1 - The Beatles

    42.2m dec 2001
    42.6m mar 2002
    44.2m end 2002
    47.2m end 2003
    49.7m jun 2004
    51.2m sep 2005
    50.8m dec 2005
    51.3m apr 2006
    53.7m dec 2006
    55.7m dec 2007

    Though SS didn't start until 20 after their break-up, they are easily the top band and just continue to sell going further and further ahead.

    2 - Metallica

    33.2m feb 1999
    35.9m may 2000
    40.2m mar 2002
    44.4m jan 2004
    47.6m sep 2005
    47.0m dec 2005
    47.2m apr 2006
    47.9m dec 2006
    48.7m dec 2007

    They've slowed recently with no new album, but one is finally due in 2008.

    3 - Pink Floyd

    26.6m dec 2001
    31.5m sep 2005
    32.0m dec 2005
    33.4m dec 2006
    34.5m dec 2007

    The kings of catalogue sales, it is their studio albums that make the running with the last being in 1994!

    4 - U2

    25.8m sep 2004
    29.6m sep 2005
    30.0m dec 2005
    31.4m dec 2006
    32.1m dec 2007

    Decent catalogue sales and new release due in 2008.


    5 - Backstreet Boys

    29.1m mar 2002
    29.5m mar 2005
    30.2m sep 2005
    30.3m dec 2005
    30.4m dec 2006
    30.6m dec 2007

    Hang on to 5th place despite minimal catalogue sales and new album barely selling. Most likely threat to 5th place is The Eagles perhaps in 2009.

    Top Five Male Artists

    1 - Garth Brooks

    59.8m feb 1999
    63.9m dec 2001
    64.4m mar 2002
    66.1m sep 2005
    65.9m dec 2005
    66.0m apr 2006
    66.0m dec 2006
    67.4m dec 2007

    At least 95% of his sales are in the Soundscan Era. Huge sales in the 1990's, his sales have really dropped off this decade - even before the Walmart deal effectively froze his soundscan total.

    However, he is now back in the game - though with no new release due, his catalogue sales likely to fall in 2008.

    2 - George Strait

    31.9m jul 2004
    35.5m sep 2005
    36.0m dec 2005
    37.9m dec 2006
    39.2m dec 2007

    He'll never catch Garth, but another cracking year keeps him comfortably in 2nd.

    3 - Tim McGraw

    26.3m jul 2004
    30.5m may 2005
    30.9m sep 2005
    31.4m dec 2005
    34.0m dec 2006
    36.4m dec 2007

    Moved to 4th in 2006 and then surged past Alan Jackson. Hot property right now.


    4 - Alan Jackson

    29.9m jul 2004
    31.6m jun 2005
    31.7m sep 2005
    32.0m dec 2005
    34.4m dec 2006
    35.3m dec 2007

    Climbed into 3rd place during 2006, but has been smoked by Tim McGraw back to 4th. His recent studio albums have not been the usual huge sellers.


    5 - Kenny G

    27.0m nov 2000
    31.7m sep 2005
    32.1m dec 2005
    32.7m dec 2006
    33.1m dec 2007

    Plunged from 3rd to 5th in 2006. Looked to lose out to Eminem imminently but that didn't happen as the latter's sales just collapsed.


    None of these guys seem to sell much outside the United States

    Top Five Female Artists

    1 - Mariah Carey

    37.7m feb 1999
    40.4m dec 2001
    40.5m mar 2002
    43.0m mar 2005
    46.3m sep 2005
    48.3m dec 2005
    49.1m apr 2006
    49.6m dec 2006
    49.9m dec 2007

    Rose to the top in 2005. Will need decent sales of her new album in 2008 to stay ahead.

    2 - Celine Dion

    39.2m mar 2002
    45.6m jul 2004
    46.9m sep 2005
    47.8m dec 2005
    48.0m apr 2006
    48.4m dec 2006
    49.7m dec 2007

    With the Las Vegas run now over, has made a promising return. Whether or not she can regain the #1 spot depends a lot on release schedules in 2008/9.

    3 - Shania Twain

    29.1m jul 2004
    32.7m sep 2005
    32.9m dec 2005
    33.3m dec 2006
    33.5m dec 2007

    Her 3rd place is under no threat, but unlikely to ever catch the Top 2. New album due in 2008.

    4 - Britney Spears

    28.2m sep 2005
    28.3m dec 2005
    28.5m dec 2006
    29.2m dec 2007

    Sales of the new album were disappointing so her 4th place is now looking a bit shakey.

    5 - Reba McEntire

    25.2m sep 2005
    25.9m dec 2005
    26.4m dec 2006
    28.0m dec 2007

    Surprising return to form in 2007 suddenly closes the gap with Britney. However, will need strong new album in 2008 to move up.
