Cher's Best-Selling Singles Of The Seventies

One thing that causes heavy debate amongst die-hard Cher fans is the subject of her record sales. As a star who achieved worldwide popularity during the mid-sixties - a time when record sales weren't taken much notice of - it's considered almost-impossible to track Cher's record sales.

From an unbelievably low 30 million to an equally unbelievable high of 200 million, Cher's career-spanning worldwide record sales amount changes from source-to-source - and this got me thinking - "Is it possible to work out Cher's record sales?"

I've been searching through every available source to identify the multi-award winning star's record sales. Taking onboard music certifications, various reliable sources and chart-runs of all her records, from all over the globe, I'm now at a point where I've finally got somewhere, and can share some of that information.
