As an artist, Elvis sold over 1 billion records. Yes, I did say 1 billion!
"...no less than 149 songs to appear on Billboard’s Hot 100 Pop Chart in America.In the US, Elvis had had 150 different albums and singles that have been certified gold.
Of these, 114 were in the top forty, 40 were in the top ten, and 18 went to number one.
His number one singles spent a total of 80 weeks at number one.
He has also had over 90 charted albums with ten of them reaching number one.
These figures are only for the pop charts, and only in America.
He was also a leading artist in the American country, R&B, and gospel fields, and his chart success in other countries was substantial."
This is pretty good for a kid born in Mississippi!
