This gives a decent introduction to King George,... got all his albums on the shelf here in Belgium!

Interesting. However, MJ should be much higher.

Prince should be on this list with all his undercertified albums. He currently have a total of 40 Millions certified albums.
.
NaMely undercertified albums
FOR YOU should be GOLD (+0.5M)
Dirty Mind sb Platinum instead of gold (+0.5M)
Purple Rain sb 16*P instead of 13*P (+3M)
ATWIAD : sb 3*P instead of 2*P (+1M)
Parade sb 2*P (+1 M)
SOTT 2*P (+1M)
Lovesexy 1*P (+0.5M)
Batman 3*P (+1 M)
.
So already a missing 8.5 M in the 80's.
.
Graffiti Bridge 1*P (+0.5M)
Diamonds and Pearls 3*P (+1 M)
The Hits 1 2*P (+1P)
The Hits 2 2*P (+1P)
The Hits 3 3*P (+2P)
.
A missing 5.5 M in the 90's
.
TVBOP 3*P (+2M)
Ultimate should be gold (+0.5)
Lotus Flower 1*P (+0.5M)
.
So a missing 3 M in the 2000's
.
So that makes for a 17 millions worth of certifications missing.
.
Prince should be #20 on this list, with 57 millions.

Well if his albums are still undercertified then why would he be on the list?

What about Guns N' Roses? Or did Use Your Illusion I and II not sell as much as I'm thinking it did?
