Music artists have influenced people for a long time. Some of them are part of a current trend, and that is only why they are famous and people listen to them. However, some will forever stand the test of time. These are not just music artists, but they are people who shape the era they live in, and influence a vast number of people from different generations. It is hard to imagine any new artists emerging if they didn’t have the great artists to be influenced by. These great artists are exactly the ones who we are going to mention, and who managed to earn their spot in the list of the top 12 best selling music artists of all time.
#12 – Queen
A British rock band from London, Queen, holds the place as the 12th best selling music act of all time. The band consisted of Freddie Mercury, Roger Taylor, John Deacon, and Brian May. They started off playing a mix of progressive and hard rock. However, over time, they started to make more radio-friendly songs, resulting in huge record sales. Since their formation, they have released 18 number one albums, as well as the same number of number one singles. The total certified number of Queen albums sold is 102.8 million, though claimed sales suggest that they’ve sold anywhere from 150 to 200 million.
