Best selling artists, albums and singles of all-time

1983 - Thriller

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 is “My Dear Melancholy” by The Weeknd on the 2020 list when it’s a 2018 EP? It has been for a while…

Mikko

A large number of artists have died from drugs or suicide. Only Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan have remained in working order.
Good role models for young artists. For some artists, death has been good commercially. Fans can be happy.

Hi,I was wondering what happened to relapseby eminem, before the new EAS formula it was at 9,248,000 and now it has dissapeared from the list. If I go to Eminem albums and song sales page it says only 8,425,000 but if you add the numbers in the columns up it should either be around 8,982,000 (verified streams) or 9,297,000 (auto update).

MJD, you could do a Olivia Newton-John’s article due her passing. It would be interesting to see.

Alexis

Hello there, when are Nicki Minaj sales going to be updated?

Ver
