The chart, compiled using sales figures from the Billboard album and singles charts, was topped by Eminem, with Usher and Nelly also making the top three.
Beyonce was placed fourth and Yamaha piano-playing singer-songwriter Alicia Keys completed the top five.
'N Sync's No Strings Attached beat Usher's Confessions to the number one spot, with The Eminem Show rounding out the top three.
