"Aside from massively successful collaborations like "Crazy in Love," "Deja Vu" and "03 Bonnie and Clyde," the shining couple of the hip-hop world recently collaborated on a baby girl, Blue Ivy Carter, after marrying in 2008. Hova and Bey released a whopping 15 studio albums combined as solo artists and 10 more collaborative albums (or, in Beyonce's case, Destiny's Child albums), bringing their total sales to 62.3 million copies sold (32.2 million for Jay, 30.1 million for Bey)."

Placed at number one are Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood with combined sales of 78.9 million copies. (Forgive me but I have no idea who those two are.)

Further down the mountain are Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon, selling about 54 million copies together and ranking at number 4 on this list.

Billboard concludes, "The happy couple have moved a combined 54 million copies -- 53.77 million of which were courtesy of Carey."
