Please note: these US sales figures were taken from the sources below. A new source (Billboard provided by C.K. Shortell) gives the sales at end of 2008 as 260,000, suggesting that it is highly unlikely another 120,000 were sold following this date.  Sales figures generally have been an inexact science throughout music history, so everything on the Cherry Lipstick pages reflects estimated sales.

Worldwide est sale = 1 - 1.5million
