This is a list of the world's best-selling albums of all time. The criteria are that the figure must have been published by a reliable source and the album must have sold at least 20 million copies worldwide. In this list the highest sales figure reported for an album is added to the list. This list can contain any types of albums, including studio albums , greatest hits , compilations , various artists, soundtracks and remixes . All albums included on this list have their available claimed figure(s) supported by at least 20% in certified copies. The percentage amount of certified sales needed increases the newer the album is, so albums released before 1975 are only expected to have their claimed figures supported by at least 20% in certified copies.
