Ah, music. Thank you a million times over for providing a beat to soothe ones soul, for making us shake our groove thangs, for getting us through heartbreak, for being the champion we need at any time. We love that there are so many genres, classic, pop, rap, jazz, heavy metal, R&B, and the list carries on. Without you, we would forever be broken. That’s why we took it upon ourselves to compile a list of the TOP best-selling music artists of all time. ~Get ready.~
The Beatles – 265 Million
That’s right, we’re kicking off this list with THE greatest band out there. EVER. Maybe that seems a bit cuckoo but come on, they’re The Beatles. They basically hold every single music record that is out there and we are not exaggerating in ANY way. The Beatles have the most number one albums on the US charts with 19 and the most number one singles in the US with 20. In the UK, they have the most number one albums and have sold more singles there than any other act. According to the RIAA, the Beatles are the best-selling music act in America, with over 178 million certified units sold and they even have the same honor in the UK, Germany, and the rest of Europe as well. No one has come close to topping their records.
Celine Dion – 125 Million
Slay, girl, slay. Celine Dion is the ONLY female artist to have two singles to sell more than a million copies in the UK and also her 1995 album ‘D’eux’ is the best-selling French-language album of all time so far. All this success follows her starts at a music career at a Eurovision Song Contest. I know, right? Back in 2004, she was presented with the Chopard Diamond Award at the World Music Awards for becoming the best-selling female artist of all time.
