    I thought Thiefyonce is the QUEEN? Can’t find her album on that list tho. #NoShade

  2. Superpower December 27, 2013

    Lmao! Sam! The Lady Gags sub! She’s the only who sold an album for 99c!

  3. JOHNVIDAL December 27, 2013

    Well, there is some good stuff there. But I have to say it seems people buying on Amazon are mostly white. Some of the artists here don´t even appear high on lists that show total sales by all the retailers.

  4. Amanda Bynes December 27, 2013

    Oh I see T***** Caca’s name.

  5. QUEEN Mariah > U December 27, 2013

  8. Amanda Bynes December 27, 2013

    @Micks Amanda doesn’t even have an album to be on that list. She isn’t a singer. Duh?

  9. Beyhivenazeem December 27, 2013

  10. Applause December 27, 2013

  13. Micks December 27, 2013

    Of course Born This Gay is #1 on M** Albums, hello 99¢ deal and the fact that no one buys MP3s on Amazon.

  25. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 27, 2013

    I don’t see any rappers there. Do you?

  26. Oh Yeah!!! December 27, 2013

    Rihanna the Best Singles artist of ALL time didn’t make the list? LOL. Someone is Lying and Exaggerating all these Supposed Millions her Label says she is selling! Hmmmmm!

  27. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 27, 2013

    @Trust Issues she didn’t need them either. She hit platinum in 10 days. That iconic shade shits on any type of shade amazon tries to throw dear

  28. Rosie December 27, 2013

  29. Ty Ty (ghetto gothic dance queen) December 27, 2013

    Zero black people on the list not surprised tho you people rather diss & criticize your own people then support and find the good in them.

  30. FUC ALL YA’LL//// December 27, 2013


  31. Trust Issues December 27, 2013

    @Beyhive, in the long run she will, after the hype die down she will, Don’t you wanna see Beyonce doing Adele numbers, Micheal Jackson numbers, or you used to her and Rihanna competing against each other.

  32. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 27, 2013

    But I don’t see any other black person other than taio Cruz. What an idiot @Fuc All Y’all

  33. the real xoxo December 27, 2013

    I still listen to the ‘Back to Black’ album – one of my favourite albums of the 21st century

  34. Bjork Stan December 27, 2013

    Mumford and Sons, Arcade Fire and The Lumineers may not be black. But their talent and artistry is still immense. More so than Ciara, Rihanna or Speak-like-a-four-year-oldyonce.

  35. h2o December 27, 2013

    Adele 19 >>

  36. Queen Brit Brit December 27, 2013

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL @ Flop This Way being #1 M** downloads!! That 99 cent deal reign just wont let up! LOL!

  37. Mark111 December 27, 2013

    Amazon always has sales on albums, that’s why I shop there Vs iTunes. I find albums on there for $2, $6.99 and i even bought BTW for 99 cents (i wouldn’t pay anymore than that and i liked Judus.) So best price amazon > iTunes.

    When it comes to sales and the go to retailer iTunes > Amazon.

  38. Slayty (Selling out the O2 Arena 5 times on the same tour) December 27, 2013

    Lmao @ Gags being #1 for those 99 cent copies she sold! Im surprised she didn’t try it with Artflop. That $5.99 deal on GooglePlay didn’t help at all

  39. Lily Fenty December 27, 2013

    Sorry Floppy Cierror Is Rihanna and Beyonce get it. If you want call any female a h** you should start with your Mama. Teach your pregnant floppy Cierror to try harder cus Beyonce finish her off with that self title Album.

  40. chloe December 27, 2013

    why are the haters worried about beyonce not being on the list when THEIR fav isnt on the list. You get mad when sam spams this site with beyonce stories everyday yet you bring her up on posts that arent even about her. just admit it. Shes the QUEEN

  41. Stephy Tha Lambily December 27, 2013

    1.) Thiller: 1982 (70,000,000+) Michael Jackson is black & has the best selling album of all time so f*** these list.

    Adele’s 21 is overrated. All she did was cry abouther fat small penis boyfriend. BORING!! UGh white people and thier overrated artist can have seaveral
