The following is an independently verified list of best-selling music artists those with claims of 75 million or more record sales from the second half of the 20th century to the present.

The tables are listed with both their claimed sales figure along with their total independently certified units and are ranked in descending order, with the artist with the highest amount of claimed sales at the top. If two or more artists have the same claimed sales, they are then ranked by certified units. The claimed sales figure and the total of certified units for each country within the provided sources include sales of albums, singles, compilation-albums, music videos as well as downloads of singles and full-length albums.
