Every musician wants to be the best-selling artist of all time. And the biggest debate in the music world is who is the best-selling star. The confusion begins when record companies and artists start to claim that they are the ones that have the biggest global figures.
Now the all-time charts are divided between physical record and digital sales. It’s because back in the ‘90s an album price could reach $40 or more, and nowadays, you can buy an album online for a dollar.
