  3. Only two people have sold 100 million albums worldwide as a solo artist AND 100 million as part of a group – Paul McCartney and Phil Collins.  Some sources are add Michael Jackson to this group, but while The Jackson 5 sold over 100 million “records” including singles, they sold less than 50 million full “albums.”
