    Default Best Selling Music Artists 1969 - 2019

    Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, but haven't seen it?

    Timeline history of most popular music artists from 1969 to 2019 ranked by yearly certified record sales. Numbers are worldwide and adjusted to twelve months trailing average.
    Prepared by a first year PhD student and self confessed data geek who loves visualizations. He did good methinks

    Totally fascinating and it really makes me think about how much 'I think' I know about music, when I don't even know the names let alone their music!

    Might be more interesting if it was measured by actual Physical copies of each artist owned by real people

    I think they should include the second hand market which has never gone away - it may have dipped for a while and unfortunately its ever more popular and prices are going off the scale !!!
