Rihanna[edit]

Hi, Good Girl Gone Bad is 2 times platinum by RIAA what means that the album has shipped more than 2 million copies, but sales is not the same as copies shipped in stores. It has been distributed 2 million copies in stores but it has sold around 1,6 million copies: http://www.chcmedia.com/forums/index.php?s=a97a3c1f079e3e14b21726bd4c7b9509&showtopic=21444 Here you can see the criteria for RIAA certification, http://www.riaa.com/goldandplatinum.php?content_selector=criteria . As you can see they count copies in stores too, not only physical sales, for example, American Life from Madonna has sold around 670,000 copies and has been certificated platinum by RIAA because in stores has shipped around 1 million copies. Here you have another forum where you can see how many copies has sold GGGB in US: www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=44466&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=1600 To check worldwide sales you just have to count how many copies the album have sold every week in http://www.mediatraffic.de/albums.htm and that make 5.512.000 copies.
