Shania Twain's "Come on Over" with worldwide sales of over 39 million. (Unless you count "The Bodyguard" soundtrack as a Whitney Houston album, with over 42 million worldwide.)
Whitney Houston, with her 1987 album, Whitney, became the first female artist to have an album debut at number one on the Billboard charts. The album produced six singles.

Michael Jackson's Thriller
Yes, Of course. In the 80's, Michael Jackson was the biggest star on Earth. After his release of Thriller which became the biggest selling album of all time he released Bad, the second biggest selling album of all time. He defined the 80's and in my opinion he defined music. He also received the artist of the decade (80's) award and later was awarded the artist of the century award.
He has, according to The Guinness Book of World Records 2012, sold 32,241,000 albums in the 21st century, making him the best album selling American artist
he album debuted at number one on the U.S., selling 592,304 copies in its first week, the best first-week sales for a female artist in 2008. Fearless became the first album to sell one million copies in 2009. i hope this has helped :)
