The IFPI Global Recording Artist of the Year Award and top 10 chart is the only ranking to accurately measure consumption across all formats (including streaming channels, digital and physical album and singles sales) and all countries. It is weighted based on the relative value of each method of consumption.

"The ‘top ten’ showcases some of the brightest and most talented artists from around the world, from newer stars, such as Billie Eilish and BTS, to legacy acts like The Beatles and Queen. This range demonstrates how people’s love of music can be continually ignited by new and diverse artists and yet endures across decades."

Yeah but the tenth best selling artist worldwide?!

EDIT: Just spotted Queen at No. 5, didn't even notice that earlier! I'm genuinely shocked at how many people are buying Queen and The Beatles in 2019 compared to newer artists. I guess it just shows how enduring those bands are.
