Billboard have gone out of their way to enlighten the masses on just who the true Queen of Disney is. Hilary Duff, duh.
In the weekly Ask Billboard column on their website, a reader asked who the biggest seller out of the new generation of Disney artists is. Billboard, who only named acts signed to Disney’s Hollywood Records label, put Hilary Duff at No.1 with US album sales of 8.3 million.
Hilary’s US total almost doubled her nearest competition The Jonas Brothers, who boasted numbers of 4.4 million. Miley Cyrus was third with 3.3 million, followed by Selena Gomez & the Scene with 1.35 million.
Demi Lovato, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Tisdale were all next, with under a million records sold each.
Overall, it would actually be Miley Cyrus with the most sales as she’s shifted just over 13 million albums in the US alone, but the bulk of those sales came from Hannah Montana soundtracks, which were credited to Hannah Montana, making Hilary the top seller.
Hilary has also sold the most records worldwide out of all the aforementioned, with her total coming in at 14 million.
These days Hilegend is working on making it as a ‘serious’ actress, but for the past year or so she’s been pondering a music comeback, and currently has plans to return to the studio after she finishes writing the next book in her best-selling Elixir trilogy.
And after a string of straight-to-DVD flops, Hilary’s latest movie Bloodworth looks like it’s about to turn things around for her movie career. The flick co-stars Val Kilmer and Kris Kristofferson, and has already been receiving unanimous praise from critics. It’s due out in theaters next month.
