Forbes' Top 10 Pop Imports

Forbes Names America's Top Pop Imports

While the actor categories at this year's Oscars were swept by international talent spanning three countries, all of the artists who made Forbes' Top 10 Pop Imports come from either Canada or Britain. And while the Top 10 doesn't showcase a variety of nationalities, it certainly covers several musical genres. The artists who made the list had the most album sales and single-track download sales music in the U.S. last year. It's surely gives the bank accounts of foreign artists a boost when they can crack the U.S. market — check out the millions they brought in last year from U.S. sales alone.

  1. Michael Buble (Canada) — $33 million
  2. Nickelback (Canada) — $32.5 million
  3. Amy Winehouse (England) — $20.5 million
  4. Celine Dion (Canada) — $17.5 million
  5. Nelly Furtado (Canada) — $14.6 million
  6. Corinne Bailey Rae (England) — $13.3 million
  7. Three Days Grace (Canada) — $10.5 million
  8. Paul McCartney (England) — $9.5 million
  9. Joss Stone (England) — $9 million
  10. Feist (Canada) — $8.2 million
