Shakira sold 80 million records worldwide

John
Could you do the Shakira update, due to her split with Pique, her streams have increased massively, and could you tell me who between Shakira and Gloria Estefan has sold more, who is the most successful Latin female artist of all time?
Dan

Hi

Can you please update Shakira? It’s been a while and I think she probably crossed 80M

it’s soo biased. She after the superbowl 2020 sold 80 in total.
You should study every artist being a favorite or not .
“Those two Spanish records have as many 10+ million songs than Madonna‘s first 9 albums combined” you can’t even comparte with madonna , no! just a big no! even when the spanish sales are no accurate.
This is a big joke.

Hello, I discovered your page recently and I am curious what your criteria are or the characteristics for an artist to be in league A or B. With examples it would be fantastic. Thanks in advance. Sorry for my English.

Hello chartmasters, this article is amazing but i dont get why waka waka streams were counted towards sale el sol sales but not its physical and digital singles sales? can you pls answer

Hey MJD! I have a question regarding Laundry Service: Washed and dried (expanded edition). It’s just a collection of old songs with some new/live versions…Why is it included as a new album in her tally? Thx

John

hello, excellent job, could you study Gloria Estefan, between Gloria and Shakira, who is the best-selling Latin artist of all time.

Al

None, Julio Iglesias outsold both

Al

Between them though it’s likely a close call, but I think I’m betting on Gloria as of now

Her spanish catalogue is waaaaay bigger.

Her first album has an unique certified on her country. And billboard itself said she sold 1,2 milion copies in brazil on her debut album.

I believe in you and in your data, but try a little to look better at south american market. Shakira is a power of nature here
