#4 CELINE DION – 192,088,000

If we look at a 4-years span, Celine Dion will emerge as the biggest artist ever with her 1996-1999 period generating an absolutely insane number of records sold. That would still leave out D’Eux which is quite simply the best selling French album ever. Such feats can only testify an outstanding popularity which is confirmed by the overall total of 192 million album sales equivalent managed by the Canadian superstar.

Biggest English Album – Let’s Talk About Love – 45,849,000

Even if she is currently enjoying a hugely successful era with her French album Encore Un Soir, struggles of Celine Dion in digital figures will start hurting her results when less and less people will be owning CD players. In the meantime, her studio album sales of more than 136 million units and her other full length records plus physical singles around 40 million each are superb.

  1. Hi dear MJD !!!

    Congratulations again for your website and also for all the twenty-five artists analyzed and studied.
    What singers or groups will you analyze in the next week ?
    I hope that you will answer me soon !!!

      1. Hi dear MJD !!!

        If we speak of a famous very flashy group from the 70s, I think they are the Queen.
        Did I guessed ? I believe are Queen because The Rolling Stones,The Beatles and Pink Floyd came out a decade earlier then the sixties.
        Then after this flashy group, I hope you finally will analyze The Fab Four (The Beatles) !!!

          1. Hi both!

            Mat got it right 😉

            Anthony, I’m working on the Beatles at the same time as other artists. I would say I have 30% complete by now. Giving their importance, I’m really getting very, very deeply into every information which obviously takes time, but I don’t want to rush an article about them!

    1. Hello Patrick!

      I edited Led Zeppelin article after the Bob Dylan one. Recently, we discussed with Hernan the case of box sets containing original albums a case which wasn’t stated in CSPC introduction. As for boxes eat catalog sales of stand alone albums, in a CSPC logic we felt logical to attribute 100% of such box sets sales into each individual album part of the package. Thus, rather than spreading the 500,000 units sold by Led Zeppelin set The Complete Studio Recordings, those sales were fully awarded to each of its 9 albums, which created a 4 million increase of their CSPC total.

      1. so the boxed sets had the whole albums and each one unit sale was a whole sale for each album that was in the box set? if that is the case then yeah it only makes sense to do so.

  2. Hi dear MJD !!!

    Certainly I understand dear,but how long do you think you can analyze The Beatles ? for example a week or a month.
    Ah congratulations, as I understand, he guessed Mat, the famous flashy group are ABBA !!!

    1. Hello Lucy!

      Mariah has not been studied yet, that is why she does not appear in this article.
      But do not worry, she will also be studied soon, like all big sellers.
