Best selling artists, albums and singles of all-time
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.
In the following results table, all categories display figures in equivalent album sales. If different, pure sales are listed between parentheses.
If you are on mobile, be aware that detailed sales by format are displayed on larger devices.

Please create an article on Melanie Martinez! Her album called ‘Crybaby’ sold more than 2 million copies in the US. The album will soon cross 4 BILLION streams. Crybaby has 4,617,000 CSPC without counting the physical sales which is amazing and deserves to be on the list, since Zara Larsson also made it here…
