Thriller by Michael Jackson
MICHAEL JACKSON Michael Jackson is the most successful entertainer of all time. I like Madonna too but the facts are the facts. Madonna is the top selling female recordi…ng artist of all time. Since her debut in 1982, Madonna has released many chart-topping albums and singles, and has sold more than 200 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide (estimations). Madonna is the top-selling female recording artist in the U.S. , that is if we combine both her albums and singles sales. But if you're going to break it down, in the album category, she is second to Barbra Streisand with 63.5 x certified platinum by RIAA while for the singles category, she tops among all female artists. Madonna holds a record artist with (gold and platinum) in the U.S. surpassing The Beatles' record. Madonna has surpassed The Beatles for the most gold certified singles in the US (25) with the release of Hung Up. . According to RIAA, she has 12 multi-platinum albums (second only to Barbra Streisand). . Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)..Top Selling Female Rock Singer of the Century 1999. .

On the United World Chart, Madonna is the "Most Successful Singles Artist of All Time" and has a record of 13 Number One singles. . World Music Awards Best Selling American Artist with Hard Candy 3.2 million copies sold. . Japan's Top Digital 08 song 500,000 unit for Miles Away. The Beatles and Elvis have sold 1 billion THIS IS BECAUSE THEIR YEARS OF ELLING HAS BEEN FOR 50 YEARS PLUS. They carried on selling after they stopped performing. Michael Jackson is the most successful recording artist EVER This answer is what is wrong with the internet. Elvis Presley and the Beatles have both sold more than Michael Jackson and Madonna. Therefore, someone biased toward Michael Jackson has posted a flatly incorrect answer, as indicated by the RIAA, the certifying organization. The correct answer is the Beatles for a group and Elvis Presley for an individual singer.
White Christmas, Bing Crosbie.
Elvis and the Beatles both have plus a billion sales and Michael Jackson is in third with 750 million with the closest artist having less then 250000 below Michael. However Mi…chael is expected to dwarf both the beatles and Elvis now that he is passed away and is selling more.
