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.

OP isn’t even comparing Artist A vs Artist B but simply listing everyone’s certifications numbers. 

- Think everyone knows music has been and will continue to be consumed in various mediums as time goes on.

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

Asia has huge album sales, wyd? Mariah is extremely global even if Europe is lacking.

 

OT: Britney below Little Mix? Sure streams and the peak of digital sales have made it easier than ever to get certifications, but this just highlights that the U.K. is up there with Germany for worst market ever.

Mariah Carey is the 10th biggest albums act in UK music history... she is under certified. 

 

+ she has sold over 15 million records in the UK. 

 

This local argument is therefore rebuked:

 

also: (among female acts)

 

78,835,000 albums sold - #3 alltime - North America

30,385,000 albums sold - #1* alltime - Asia

29,795,000 albums sold - #5 alltime - Europe

3,645,000 albums sold - #14 alltime - South / Latin America

3,415,000 albums sold - #6 alltime - Oceania

1,500,000 albums sold - #5 alltime - Africa

 

*among all western acts (incl. male solo acts, group acts)

How's that possible ? UK certifications are automatically updated by BPI (unlike the US where the label has to request them)
