Ranking of American Artists with the Most Record Sold »

Share this link on Facebook
(9 votes)

There are different types of recognitions given to artists whose albums achieve high numbers in sales. In Spanish speaking countries, the most common recognitions are the Gold Record (Disco de Oro) and the Platinum (Platino) Record, while in English speaking countries the most recognized award is the Golden Record. The number of sales required to attain one of these awards varies depending on the population of the country in which the album is sold and the average volume of sales, with the scale within a country fluctuating depending on the changes in record sales. This ranking is a general approximation, since there is no official committee that can authenticate these figures that give us the American singers with the most records sold of all time.
