Ke$ha sells more than the Beatles…

So I was reading a fellow musician’s blog tonight. He posted some startling stats about record sales. I found them interesting and thought you might too.

1. Creed has sold more records in the US than Jimi Hendrix.

2. Led Zeppelin, REM, and Depeche Mode have never had a number one single, Rihanna has 10.

3. Ke$ha’sTik-Tok” sold more copies than ANY Beatles single.

4. Flo Rida’s “Low” has sold 8 million copies – the same as The Beatles’ “Hey Jude.”

5. The Black Eyed Peas‘ “I Gotta Feeling” is more popular than any Elvis or Simon & Garfunkel song.

6. Celine Dion’s “Falling Into You” sold more copies than any Queen, Nirvana, or Bruce Springsteen record.

7. Same with Shania Twain’s “Come On Over.”

8. Katy Perry holds the same record as Michael Jackson for most number one singles from an album.

9. Barbra Streisand has sold more records (140 million) than Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash, and Tom Petty combined.

10. People actually bought Billy Ray Cyrus‘ album “Some Gave All…” 20 million people. More than any Bob Marley album.

11. The cast of “Glee” has had more songs chart than The Beatles.
