Madonna is definitely the queen of pop music, and it seems the music industry is too. The official Guinness World Records page has officially announced that 65-year-old Madonna is the best-selling female artist of all time.

Madonna is currently on her comeback tour called Celebration World Tour after a complicated health situation where she was between life and death.

In a statement, Guinness World Records recognized the American artist as the holder of the title, but noted that it is a record she has held since 2009 and one that no artist has been able to break in the past few years.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Madonna has sold more than 400 million records in her 40-year music career.

Although the queen of pop has held the title for over 14 years, other famous artists are following on her heels. The top five includes celebrities such as Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift and Beyonce.
