    CR must not be selling enough to chart since the article states albums that are selling enough to chart are the ones they have listed.

    yay for Carrie!

    can't wait for next year's update 4th album will bomb the charts.

    side note: hmm, kind of surprised that SWSRN debut sold up to 5 mil. since when was it certified 5x?! her numbers seem pretty consistent for all 3 albums.

    wow, BOTH of Tim's "greatest hits" album also did pretty well! usually wouldn't expect sales to be that good for TWO rereleases of previous works.

    Her debut album started out slow, but really gained momentum during the Fearless era. I think both albums charted high during that era.

    Well didn't she also re-release her first album a couple of times and she re-released Fearless once right?
