July 10, 2008
Coldplay, Leona Lewis, Amy Winehouse 'Biggest Selling Artists In The World'Four of the five biggest selling albums of 2008 so far have been recorded by British artists, new figures show.

Amy Winehouse tops the list with 'Back To Black', which has sold a total of 3.67million copies in the last six months.

The album, which was originally released at the end of 2006, has sold nearly 10million copies worldwide.

Second in the list are Coldplay with 'Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends', which has already sold 2.67millions copies since it was released last month.

Leona Lewis (2.4million) and Duffy (2.25million) came in at third and fifth respectively on the countdown, with Jack Johnson the only non-British artist at number four.

Other artists in the top-ten include Lil' Wayne, Michael Jackson and Alicia Keys.
