This is the list of best-selling albums in Taiwan. Seven domestic albums and one international album have shipped over a million copies in Taiwan. Chinese singer Jacky Cheung is the best-selling artist in Taiwan, with three albums sold more than one million copies, while Taiwanese singer A-mei is the best-selling female artist in Taiwan. Taiwan's album sales peaked in 1990s, but it was adversely impacted by the copyright infringement and Internet downloads since the 21st century.[1][2]
