I read recently the the BPI now automates it's certifications. So I researched how Janet managed to play into it:

not as much as I desired but it's something....

I would be gagging if the RIAA follows suit.

I never really checked her certifications in the UK so I'm posting hem here :). Thanks for posting because otherwise I wouldn't have bothered lol.

U.S. - 352,000 + (double disc over 100 minutes, thus it counts twice; last Soundscan number 175,892 [2011]).

U.K. - 100,000 +

Japan - 20,300 +

Canada - 10,000

= 482,300

Given the dated figures for the compilation, it's safe to estimate that #1s/TB has sold about 500,000 globally.

Back when?

When the album was released in the 80s/early 90s pre Soundscan.

i actually went to find for you SloLove but couldn't find it for Control and Rhythm Nation. I know janet. made her the first female to debut at number one in the Soundscan era.

Where do you get all this info? What were each of her albums opening week sales? Did they do that back then?

I found it all while waiting in the airport for a flight I was 4 hours early for a few years back. The opening sales for albums in the 80s was often low. Albums back then would ascend the chart to #1, rather than just debuting at #1.
