Hi, is it official? You got them from PARI?

And do you have the list of best selling international albums?


I hope you drop to my email

Please correct your list.

Donna Cruz is the only female artist from VIVA Records to place in the top 20 best-selling OPM albums of all time. Sarah Geronimo, Regine Velasquez and Jaya are not even part of the Top 20. The official list issued by PARI can be found in this article.

CORRECTION! Regine Velasquez is the BEST-SELLING FEMALE ARTIST OF ALL TIME in the Philippines. Her R2K album is 10x Platinum(actually it's 12x). Plus, Velasquez is the FIRST ever female Filipino artist who received a Diamond record award selling more records than any other female wannabes out there.

Regine Velasquez should be the first female artist who got the Diamond Record Award and not NINA!!!

99.2% of you people in here are stupid as fuck it takes 1,000,000 to go platinum and 10,000,000 to go diamond so that selling 300,000 is something to wipe your ass with .. i hate when people speak on what they dont understand - semaj vs james
