#57 - Janet Jackson - 4,359,645

UK confirmed album sales (retail - excl. music clubs):
1984-2005 - 2,321,000
1990-1999 - 1,610,000 (#90) * full end of decade chart *

UK confirmed singles sales:
1990-1999 - Janet Jackson - 3,210,000 * full end of decade chart *

UK certifications are done automatically by the OCC.

Hmmm...IDK I see her numbers all over the place. But I guess if we have to go off of them, I found something on UK Mix when I googled. And those dont account for everything.

Single sales =/= certifications

A song selling 199,999 wouldn't appear in this list because the silver mark is 200k.

A song selling 399,999 woud appear as 200k because it didn't reach Gold (400k) and so on..

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.

So we adding the bus fare? hahaha what a silly thing to say.

 

Lets just remove all artists pre downloads...

Oh also I just calculated it and you don't have ASIB as Platinum (300,000) either, Gaga should be at 4.56m albums and 8.4m singles for 12.96m total :heart2:

Dangerously In Love - 1,200,000

B Day - 300,000

B Day Deluxe - 100,000

I Am... - 1,500,000

4 - 600,000

4 The Remix - 60,000

Beyonce - 600,000

Beyonce Platinum Edition - 60,000

Lemonade - 300,000

Dreamgirls - 100,000

More Only - 60,000

 

4,880,000? It's not possible for it to end in 50,000 as the certification numbers are 60,000/100,000/300,000.

they're cert totals boo, not album sales total.
If an album sold 1,199,000 it will be counted as 900,000 because it hasn't hit 1.2m officially yet and therefore isn't certified for those sales.

Oh so I was right the first time :rip: 4,880,000 is the right number, the OP is still wrong.

No it’s not wrong, the OP was changed to 4,880,000 when you first posted over 9 hours ago.

Don’t you mean “Flawless Remix”? since that was certified silver by the BPI yesterday.

 

Feeling Myself has been silver for a while now.
