    Hi Maneza F8 and welcome to the site! Stack Exchange is a little different from other websites --we're not really a forum for discussions, so open ended questions aren't a good fit here. We're really looking primarily for questions that potentially have one, well-defined answer, not list questions. For instance: "Which non-US rappers have appeared on the US Billboard music charts?" – Chris Sunami supports Monica Jun 13 '19 at 19:00
  • Top all time selling artists include The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, AC/DC, Pink Floyd... probably more Rest Of The World than US. – Bebs Jun 14 '19 at 7:07
  • Elton john was on my mind when I was asking this question and artists like Adele, Ed Sheeran and the likes of Bob Marley. – Maneza F8 Jun 14 '19 at 8:19
