Who is the Most records sold by female?
The female that has sold the most records worldwide is Madonna. She has sold over 300 million records. In the United States, Madonna is the second-best selling female artist behind Barbara Streisand.
Loretta Lynn has sold over 48 million records worldwide; at least that is what I read. She was the first female country artist to have a record declared gold according to RIAA, Recording Industry Association of America. Her sister, Crystal Gayle, was the first female artist to have a recording declared platinum according to RIAA, which means that it sold over one million units.
The Spice Girls have sold over 60million records worldwide and are therefore the best selling female group of all time. However, as the Spice Girls do not play their own instruments they cannot techinically be considered a "band" so the best selling female "band" of all time would be The Dixie Chicks who have sold in the region of 30million records worldwide.
