Yeah, yeah, yeah!

There can be nothing better than having an album that can still sell,sell,sell after eight years on the market — and Usher can admit to that.

According to Nielsen SoundScan, the Climax singer reached over 10 million in sales this week for his 2004 record, Confessions, making it 19th album to hit this great achievement since the company started tracking in 1991.

Eminem's, The Eminem Show, is the last music collection that sold over 10 million copies, but Metallica's, Metallica, has never been passed up in sales with 15.8 million units!

Dayum!

She's joining some pretty exclusive company!

As of this week, Reba McEntire has just become the second female country artist to surpass the 30 million mark in album sales!

And although Shania Twain holds the #1 spot with 34,175,000, Reba has actaully been topping the charts since 1981 - before the Nielsen SoundScan even started tracking album sales for Billboard in 1991!

So someone had a pretty unfair advantage, if you ask us!

But hey!
