This answer is incorrect. The best selling album by a female artist goes to Shania Twain with "Come on over"

Come on over by artist Shania Twain is the best selling country album of all time and also holds the record for the best selling album by a female artist.

Madonna is the top-selling female recording artist in the U.S, that is if we combine both her albums and singles sales. But if you're going to break it down, in the album category, she is second to Barbra Streisand while for the singles category, she tops among all female artists. She is also the female artist w/ most certified singles (gold and platinum) in the U.S. surpassing The Beatles' record.

Yes, Thriller was the best selling album worldwide since 1983, Thriller is by artist Michael Jackson

Hi.... I think you will find that 'Come on Over' by Shania Twain with 39 million sold is the biggest selling album by a female.... The Bodyguard Soundtrack is not exclusively Whitney....i.e. other artists are included on the album.... so its open to debate! Whitney Houston's 1992 "the Bodyguard Soundtrack" also its the biggest selling soundtrack of all time as well...so a double whammy here and its the 2nd biggest selling album of all time. (behind Micheal Jackson's Thriller Album") Whitney Houston's 1992 "the Bodyguard Soundtrack" also its the biggest selling soundtrack of all time as well...so a double whammy here and its the 2nd biggest selling album of all time.
