Well that list is just copied and pasted from Wikipedia. We can all visit there.

Additionally, you didn't put the #1 selling-album by a female artist of all time.

The Bodyguard ~ 42-44 million copies.

And yes it is widely acknowledged as a Whitney Houston album. Seeing as you apparently ignored by attempt to inform you before:
1)http://www.grammy.com/nominees/search?artist=Whitney+Houston&title=&year=1993&genre=All - Whitney alone got the Grammy for the album as Artist;
2)It is sold on Itunes as a Whitney Houston album, has a picture of her and her name printed on the front; and
3) It is acknowledged by Billboard as a Whitney Houston album: http://www.billboard.com/#/charts/billboard-200?chartDate=1992-12-14.

So kindly update your original post for accuracy.

Someone is mad :oh:

No it is NOT the best selling female album because it is NOT her album alone.
There is other artists who recorded half of the album.

That's not a serious question, is it? It came out a week ago....

It is amazing that Shania Twain is at the top considering country has NEVER caught on outside the US. Maybe a little in Canada but it is basically a US centric genre. She really broke free and did something no one had done except maybe Garth Brooks.
