The fame is such a classic. 3 million pure sales in the U.K alone. 
I don’t see Adele’s next album doing well. She waited too long and sales are dead.

I dont know for sure but I suspect A Star Is Born might not be included in Gaga's numbers here. I think it's credited to the cast of ASIB rather than to Gaga herself. Which might mean that Gaga's true numbers are even higher

The success of 25 was mostly from 21 hype. Similar to BTW coming from TFM hype. Her next album will show if she's a fluke or not.

But 25 was very well received though. It spawned big hit like Hello and many songs went on to chart well globallh

I’m so shook at pink’s success, everyone just doesn’t mention her but she’s there, she had consistent success from her debut until beautiful trauma,(except for try this, maybe) probably she won’t comeback to those numbers again but she’s really big

I guess it depends. She's taking too long to release, and that can effect her chart performance. She's obviously not going to do 21/25 numbers. I guess it depends on the lead single and how it's received.

Pink's success is very underrated. Her album sales are much better than her peers. She sold 40 million albums, which is more than Beyonce and Xtina. Beyonce's WW album sales are not impressive. She sold less albums than Gaga in a better climate.

yup.

Chartmasters has Gaga at 36 million, Beyonce at 33.7 million, Xtina at 30 million and P!nk at 37 million. 

The 37 million doesn't even include her last 2 albums. Beautiful Trauma sold 2.8m pure copies ww. H2BH sold around 600k. It'll bring her up to 40 million. Her success is honestly underrated
