Hello All, I know how much this forum loves its female acts so what better way to celebrate the success of the ladies of pop than with the ultimate rundown of the best selling female acts of 1980-2013? I've chosen to end the tally in 2013 as this is before "Streaming" comes into the chart equation and makes estimating much harder in terms of "pure sales". This list is based on singles sales only. As with all my rundowns here an act will be credited with the total sales of a track if they are individually credited on a track even as a named feature act. To accompany each post I'll try to find a video which shows most, if not all, of their discography along with my personal fave from that act. Finally the top positions will probably be well known but please no spoilers- the fun is in the rundown as they say. My tallies may differ from the OCC as I use the Gallup figures for 1983-1994 and the figures of the time for the 1994-1996 period which occasionally differ from the OCC tallies used. Thanks as always go to OCC, Gallup, MW, MFR, Haven, and youtube. As always the success of a thread depends on you so participation is encouraged!
