hey! how can i find a certain album’s sales, they arent available anywhere (including this list) and i wanted to ask if theres any way i could find it. thank you!


Hi elora93838!

Are you looking at sales of one specific album that isn’t present or how to access to album sales of the artists listed on page 18?


I can’t search any artists. Chartmasters should sent an email to each subscriber that their website will be down or something like that


Hi jam001!

With nearly 12,000 subscribers, time for all emails to be sent the issue would be solved more often than not! Also, while I’ve set the needful to be notified when the website is down, it’s trickier when the site is up and running and only the tool is offline. I’ve no notification in this case. The best would be to mail us at so that we are aware of it and restart the tool fast.

As mentioned to L145, I’ve increased Silver’s limit to 10 for today for the inconvenience caused!


What happened to your website?

Justin bieber is at 82m eas


Justin bieberstotal seems to glitch between 82 and 85 million.
Which is the correct total?


The other image I saw


it’s 82m


Hi Fanofpop!

Weirdly enough, from time to time Spotify credits the song Bad Guy to Justin, the solo song. This ends up with this glitch, the correct value is the lowest one.


Thank you so much


it’s still showing 85m


hey can you please update ed sheeran album sales?
