30 biggest-selling CDs in the U.K. - Come On Over #7

Shania Twain and Michael Bublé make NME’s list of ’30 biggest-selling CDs of the past 30 years’ in the U.K.

With the assistance of the Official Charts Company, NME has narrowed down the "30 biggest-selling CDs of the past 30 years" in the U.K., and two Canucks have earned spots on the list: Shania Twain and Michael Bublé.

With 2.7 million albums sold across the pond, Bublé's 2009 record "Crazy Love" came in at No. 16 on the U.K. list and, as NME points out, earned him a Grammy Award for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album.

In comparison, "Crazy Love" has been certified triple platinum in Canada and has achieved a double platinum status in the U.S.

The record, produced by David Foster, Bob Rock and Humberto Gatica, also went to No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart and won the 37-year-old crooner multiple Juno Awards in the categories of Pop Album of the Year, Album of the Year, and Single of the Year for the track "Haven't Met You Yet."

Cracking the Top 10 and coming in at No. 7 on NME's list is country/pop singer Twain, whose 1997 effort "Come On Over" has sold three million copies in the U.K. to date. The album features singles like "From This Moment On" and "Man! I Feel Like a Woman."

According to Billboard, "Come On Over" also holds the record for best-selling female album of all time, with 15.52 million copies sold in the United State. It comes second only to the most popular album of all time in the U.S., Metallica's self-titled 1991 disc also known as "The Black Album," which has sold 15.79 million copies.

Although 47-year-old Twain's record peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's 200 album chart, it went on to top the Country Albums and Canadian Albums charts, taking up residency on each for 151 and 117 weeks, respectively.

Rounding out the Top 3 on NME's list are Oasis' 1995 album "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" (selling 3.4 million copies), Adele's 2011 hit record "21" (with 3.6 million in sales), and ABBA's 1992 effort "Gold," (which has sold four million copies).
