You don’t know the difference between the two. I’m laughing at you. Not at the shade ??????

the number could've easily been the position on the itunes charts so no I didn't know. I don't know how he writes his stuff so that's why I asked.

I know Itunes doesn't show sales but the actual sales could be found out and Austin is capable of finding out itunes sales.

Yesterday, a list of the Biggest Digital Single Sellers has been published. We saw that Rihanna easily dominates this ranking but there is no suspense, she does not appear among Best Physical Single Sellers. It is becausethe physical single market was dead a long time before she has released her first record. So, who leads this category? Are there well ranked artists in the two formats? You will find the answer in the list below!

Please keep in mind some artists with strong results in this format haven’t been studied so far, e.g. Elton John, Elvis Presley or Diana Ross. All figures reflect the value as collected at the time of the artist’s respective articles.

A lot of lists like this one are available in the Data Collector, so feel free to read them to gauge how your favorite artist ranked in it.

Reminder of the formula:

Equivalent Albums Sales (EAS) = 0.3 * Physical Single Sales

ARTISTS RANKING – PHYSICAL SINGLES SALES
13. Janet Jackson  40,640,000 units (12,191,000 EAS)

To be fair though the 20 million probably is inflated a bit. 

IFPI listed it at 16 million back in 2004 which probably is more align with the fact it had sold 10 million in 1995. I highly doubt it’s sold another 10 million since then.

actually the album was at 10 million 7 months after it's release according to Billboard's 1994 issue. If it sold 10 million barely past half a year then how much you think it sold after all this time? Receipt "A" right here https://books.google.com/books?id=UAgEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA5&dq=janet+ten+million+copies&hl=pt-BR&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjKjfjMuuPQAhUFipAKHQh0Bt4Q6AEIOTAD#v=onepage&q=janet ten million copies&f=false

Receipt "B" from the label owner Richard Branson and it's on Virgin's website. Read the last sentence. It can't be more confirmed than this. It's most likely past 20 million :) janetalbum_zpsaff6xedl.jpg
