Per RIAA certified sold units in US matrics, we have got top 30 best selling musicians of all -time.

While The Beatles, a British band group holds the number one crown being the best-selling album artists with 183 million units sold in the US, they also have had the most valuable music catalog of $500 million according to Forbes, Garth Brooks is the best-selling solo singer in the US.

Legends like Elvis and Michael could not make it to the top despite the fact they were rooted in America, and their popularity is worldwide.

Although Jackson has the best-selling album of all time with 52.2 million worldwide sales, the Eagles has the same records in the united states with 38 million domestic units sold.
