Madonna (USA, b. Madonna Ciccone) is the Best-selling female recording artist, having sold more than 300 million albums in her career since debuting with her self-titled release in 1983.

As of October 2013, Madonna had sold an estimated 305,600,000 albums. Her best-sellers are The Immaculate Collection (1990, 30 million copies sold) and True Blue (1986, 25 million copies sold).

Although precise sales figures are difficult to obtain and are often disputed, it is acknowledged that only The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson have conclusively sold more albums worldwide than Madonna.

In honour of Record Store Day she is releasing Like A Virgin & Other Big Hits! as a 12" Coloured Vinyl.

She is such a renowned popstar that she has even inspired a Guinness World Records attempt for the Largest gathering of people dressed as Madonna. The 2014 Fool's Paradise Drag Party (USA) set the record with an incredible 440 people in Fire Island Pines, New York, USA, in August 2014.


Nothing too new here, apart from a more precise figure for her estimated worldwide sales that I've not seen before. What makes hers more impressive to me is that she's achieved that much without resorting to bucket loads of compilations and cash-ins.
