Hey @Skizza306 , That's bull-sh!t...

Ok, I was on this thread and @Skizza306 got into a debate about albums that have more saturation that Get Rich or Die Trying. You can see it in the link.

I just wanted to get out of RyKo’s thread before I get into this.

Speakerboxxx/Love Below is a double-album though, so the number of people who actually have it is half of it’s total sales since each one counts as two.

What?? If I buy the album Speakerboxxx/The Love Below at Target, and take it to the register it is bought as 1 UNIT and that is how the album sales are counted.

It doesn’t count as 2 albums sold. It’s not sold as 2 albums. It’s sold as a 2-disc album like you said Skizza. When you buy the Life After Death Biggie doesn’t get twice the amount of money.

As a result of the methodology that the American and Canadian certification-awarding bodies, the RIAA and Music Canada, use, each disc in a multi-disc set is counted as one unit toward certification, leading to many double albums on the list—such as Pink Floyd’s The Wall and the Beatles’s The Beatles—being certified with a number double the number of copies sold there. Such albums have the certifications for the number of copies, not discs, shipped indicated.

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below has been certified diamond and 11 times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipping more than 11 million units (in this case, 5.5 million double album sets, which are double-counted by the RIAA
