They need to do a list based on SPS too though

 

Since it's based on pure sales only I think ASIB will be the top selling album of 2018 WW.

If it was based on SPS, easily. But I'm not so sure since it looks like it's based on pure sales again.

They've been neglecting Japan and Korea the last 2 years, so if they do the right thing, they should.
