Celine Dion, Madonna and Whitney Houston all got the France Album Sales treatment during the last few months. Among the historical Divas big five only Mariah Carey and Barbra Streisand are missing. Let’s fix half of this concern by studying the career of the former vocalist
Can we have Barbra’s France Album Sales article😂, please


Hi, MJD according to this page Daydream has sold 730,400 in France. Is it true information?

John Will

Great work!Now, among the historical Divas big five only Barbra Streisand are missing. I can’t wait to read your fixing this concern by studying the career of Barbra! It’s must be a big project。


!!!4 years past, maybe MJD forget this╮(╯_╰)╭


Finally! 4.8 million is a handsome number… quite similar to her total in South Korea.


Not to mention her France total is higher than her German total, which is amazing, considering that Germany is a stronger music market than France Mariah’s sales in Germany are at around 4 million, so almost 1 million less than France.

I believe Mariah’s top music markets (sales wise) are:
1. USA (70m+)
2. Japan (~20m)
3. UK (7,5m+)
4. Canada/South Korea/France (4,8-5m)

Also, Is it true Mariah is one of the top 5 american artists in France, and just 2nd to Madonna? If true, then WOW!


I believe she would’ve been 3rd/4th in France. She would definitely has less total than Celine Dion and I believe Whitney would beat her sales too, mainly due to crazy success of The Bodyguard.

Actually, she has more than Whitney
