Best Selling Digital Songs (US)

A quick look at the best selling singles of the digital era (pure). Somewhat inaccurate as some songs are not currently charting. Check the dates for when each song was last updated.

Orange – Updated this year
+ – Change from the last update.
NE – New from the previous update.
OFF – No longer in the top 50. As new updates are added, some of these could re-enter.
UP NEXT – Tracks that are active and approaching inclusion (not every track below the top 50 is listed here, just some noteworthy songs. Example: Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” has sold 5.3 million pure but hasn’t been updated in a while and is not actively being updated so it’s not listed in the Up Next section).

*May not include all tracks with over 5.5 million copies as the full list hasn’t been updated in several years. Some numbers from Billboard are rounded to the nearest 100k sales. In ties, the track updated most recently is ranked lower*
