It is estimated that both Artists have sold between 100 and 200 Million Records. Shirley Bassey's actual count is a little harder to approximate because she has held recording contracts with quite a few different companies, including major worldwide companies like Columbia, United Artists and now Universal/Decca, and also several minor labels.

With this said, both artists have been major players in the music industry for many, many decades.
