Raymond Lam & Joey Yung IFPI's Best Selling Singers
Oriental Daily received news that this year's "IFPI's Best Selling Male and Female Singer" went to Raymond Lam and Joey Yung respectively. Both of them also won "Top Ten Best Selling Singer" along with Janice Vidal, G.E.M, Denise Ho, Ivana Wong, Wong Cho Lam, Stephanie Cheng, Charlene Choi and etc. As for "Top Selling Cantonese Album" went to Janice Vidal. Everyone is most surprised about Miriam Yeung not making into the Top Ten.
"The Most Popular Male and Female Newcomer" went to Bosco Wong, Aarif Lee, Jonathan Wong and Kate Tsui.
As HKRIA is not part of the Hong Kong District member, so the singers under Universal, Warner, Sony Music and EMI album sales were not counted. Eason Chan, Kay Tse, Hins Cheung, Khalil Fong and many more all got no awards. Coincidentally, the IFPI award ceremony is broadcast by TVB, so they don't have to worry about spending time cutting the sections that contain the singers from the Big 4. As for Leo Ku who just recently switched over to a new company, his old record company Gold Label did not help him count the number of album sales. His first album after entering EEG released at the end of the year where the number of sales were not counted in time, so like the Big 4 singers, he received no award.
