    Well MJ still ended up owning the Beatles catalog and that played a part in boosting sales.

    How? Did it boost the Beatles sales that MJ bought their songs? Why and How? Just currious, never heard that before.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    The Beatles made a lot more albums than MJ, so that probably helped them with album sales.

    Maybe, but for whatever reason is, I'd rather see our boy up there as number one lol I know I know, sounds a bit childish yet can't help but think he should be top 1 in all (good) rankings

    Any of these things that have US sales instead of world sales I don't like.. alters the opinion and thoughts too much..

    Probably I get tired of trying to prove Michael was the largest artist that ever lived..

    If a publication is US based, why would they be talking about worldwide sales? That wouldn't be relevant to a US audience. Does the UK, Brazil, or Korea write a lot about Garth Brooks' sales? Theoretically, a Chinese or Indian artist can have the biggest selling album in history in China or India alone without it selling anywhere else in the world. The US press would not likely write about such an album, and probably not many other countries would either. It's been said that Nana Mouskouri is one of the highest selling singers, but she is little known if at all in the states.

    MJ has actually surpassed Billy Joel in the US. This must be an old video because as of August 2018, MJ moved into 6th place for the best selling act in the US.
