If Bad or Dangerous albums came out today, all the tracks on those albums would occupy the entire top 10 and top 20.
Let’s try to be fair play.

I don’t like Taylor at all, but I have to give it to her. The last album that sold this much was also hers.

She has a marketable look and she does release over a dozen versions of her albums and songs. She also has a dedicated fanbase that will buy anything.

I saw this earlier!! In the comments on Twitter they also compared how many albums MJ has versus these other artists. Pretty insane when you consider he's only working with 10 (realistically, more like 6) albums to achieve these numbers!

Very very surprised to see Mariah Carey and Elvis this high on the list. Why not a top 10 or more, i’m intrigued.

My guess is Mariah is here because of "All I Want for Christmas" which at least in the US is the most overplayed song in the history of recorded music lol

Mariah is here because of her Christmas song. Elvis is here because he has had hundreds of albums, greatest hits. He was also the biggest star of his era.
