Best selling artists, albums and singles of all-time

Top albums CSPC

Albums Ranking – CSPC – Overall sales

This list is about the most successful albums of all time (understand “which have generated the most sales”). The figures are given in EAS (equivalent album sales).

Please keep in mind that some artists are missing, because their analysis has not been done yet. The complete list is available here. Sales figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles while streams are updated daily. Albums from unstudied artists which gained significant streams are listed but miss the sales component.

why “red (taylor’s version)” isn’t included

Ultimate

In Page 5, in Digital Singles Sales

The likes of Maroon 5 and Eminem numbers are increasing while Lady Gaga and Adele are still the same. Taking note that they which are supposed to be top 2 in the first place. The update supposed to be all of such lists.
Can the admins answer this question?

Jazz

Adele and Lady Gaga are both increasing. A few years back Adele was at 80 million, Gaga was at 60 million. Now Adele at 102 and Gaga 77. Eminem and Maroon 5 just have better streaming figures.

Paviurso

Why is Adele’s 30 not among the albums with the most pure sales? if they have even given it a Guinness World Record for selling 5M of pure units in 2021
