I'm guessing Gaga is under-certified? Poker Face + Just Dance + Bad Romance + Born This Way sales already add up to 22.8m. :shrug:

Can someone explain me how is it possible that Gaga's digital singles sales were certified 20 Million by RIAA on March, 17 in 2011

And now it's only 22,5. I mean do they mean that The Edge of Glory and You and I sold 2,5 M together when they are around 4,5?

Also how possible that this info is so different from the year-end 2011 info from Billboard:

THE 10 BEST-SELLING DIGITAL ARTISTS TO DATE

1. Rihanna (47,571,000)

2. Black Eyed Peas (42,405,000)

3. Eminem (42,290,000)

4. Lady Gaga (42,078,000)

5. Taylor Swift (41,821,000)

6. Katy Perry (37,620,00)

7. Lil Wayne (36,788,000)

8. Beyonce (30,439,000)

9. Kanye West (30,242,000)

10. Britney Spears (28,665,000)

Thank you for explanation to anyone who replies :worship:

That mean songs that didn't certified is not counted

Thank you !

Clear now, a song needs to pass the procedure of certification to get counted.

'Cause from the confirmed sales numbers we have by now:

6 720 005 Just Dance

6 865 535 Poker Face

2 500 000 Lovegame

3 331 597 Paparazzi

5 305 757 Bad Romance

3 203 951 Telephone

2 400 000 Alejandro

3 832 683 Born This Way

822 000 Judas

2 600 000 The Edge of Glory

2 000 000 YoË and I

501 034 Marry The Night

The Fame 4,496,175

The Fame Monster EP 1,510,000

Born This Way 2,238,000

she is already over 40,000,000 with single sales and over 8,244,175 with album sales in the USA alone!
