I am a RiRi stan but we can't compare singles that were sold for 99 cents on itunes with physical singles that cost $4 ad you had to go to a store to get them.

Uhm, isn’t Mariah the biggest pop girl of all time in Asia, aka the most populous continent in the entire world?

yeah Madonna's single sales are impressive since the majority of her hits were pre-digital era

however Rih's definitely the 2nd most successful female act of all time there and it doesn't look like she'll slow down anytime soon

Gurl, album sales in Asia are non existent. Except in Japan. She was big in Japan in the 90s. Not the entire continent.
