Like a friend said --
- Who else could have sold over 700m copies (total album/singles sales)?
- Who else could have their album spend over 80 weeks in theUS Top 10?
- Who else could sell 500,000 concert seats in just 4 hrs?
- Who else could have an album sell 5million copies & be said to have flopped?
