Album Sales


When discussing rivals, musicians always pull out the album sales card to win the argument. Perry has sold 11 million albums, which ranks her among the top 10 best selling musicians in history. Her 2010 “Teenage Dream” album spawned five number one singles, which was the first time a female singer has ever achieved that feat, and ranks second only to Michael Jackson’s “Bad” for most number one singles of all time from a single album. Perry sets a high bar, one that may be impossible to surpass, but lo and behold, Gaga blows right past those lofty numbers. Gaga has sold more than 27 million albums, and her last three releases have each topped the charts.   Advantage:  Lady Gaga
