Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG * Hey look, it’s my first footnote in DJBooth history. Accurate total sales stats are a harder to to come up with than you might think, but Jay’s sold approximately 50 million albums and Kanye 12 million, which puts their combined 62 million well ahead of any other rap duo. Ironically, the biggest collaborative album by two artists period is Jay and R. Kelly’s Unfinished Business, while the biggest collaborative album by a group belongs to classic-rock quartet The Travelling Wilbury’s, depending on much credit you give George Harrison for The Beatles' sales.

Go back to the review of Watch the Throne.
