    I actially think Carrie has much more then this. She won a plaque from the label at last year's CRS seminar (2010) for 20 million digital units.

    Unless they counted her ringtones and such in that number?

    Either way-- I think Carrie has more then 10.5 million.

    Based on the charts in Cary's PDF, Carrie's singles and tracks have sold approx. 15,875,969. And that's not including ringtones or anything like that. (This is from IYH all the way to MS.)

    So there's definitely some #s missing in this calculation. They're not including songs that may have had a large number of sales, but didn't go at least Gold.

    I think the chart is only for certified stuff. If something is 1.5 mil it is counted at platinum.

    ^ I thought platinum was 1 million? Gold is 500k and platinum is 1 million.

    So it's not counting IYH (because most of IYH's sales were physical sales, not digital sales), DFTRM (because it sold only 290k), I'll Stand By You (sold about 352,300), Home Sweet Home (299,704), HGTA (181,000), MS (375,000), plus all the smaller-selling songs like TAPFU, PFT, etc. It's only counting songs that sold at least 500k.

    "Inside Your Heaven" was certified Gold digitally actually, but at that time it was 100k copies for Gold for digital singles.

    So she's sold ITH (100k), "Jesus Take The Wheel" (1 million), "Before He Cheats" (3 million), "Wasted" (0.5 million), "So Small" (0.5 million), "All-American Girl" (1 million), "Last Name" (1 million), "Just A Dream" (0.5 million), "I Told You So" (0.5 million), "Cowboy Casanova" (1 million), "Temporary Home" (0.5 million), "Undo It" (1 million). So that's 10.6 million.

    But not too long ago there was an article saying Lady GaGa is the highest certified digital single artist so this is a little confusing.


    And the 20-million plague given to Carrie was digital sales globally. So it counts sales outside of the States, counts sales that are not certified for R.I.A.A., counts sales of digital albums.

    Good question. Unfortunately the link/article sheds no light on that subject.
