Interesting to see Adele not in the top five, presumably only because she's only released three albums, whereas everyone else here has been way more prolific.

Pretty insane for Ed, and very impressive indeed for Little Mix.

This list seems odd to me. I donít get how some of those artists have such high sales.

I think that any list that puts Little Mix ahead of Adele is a bit suspect tbh...

It is correct, Ed has like 15 million sellers and loaaads of Silver certifications. It all adds up.

Includes streams.

also really surprised to see Dua there, 19m sales for songs/singles is massive for how long she's been around (but then again she gets excellent label support) congrats to ha!!

So The Beatles have sold 15.97m tracks since November 16th 2010, and streams since December 24th 2015.
Other acts had the full 21 years of sales.
Not bad in comparison!
