Updated.

 

Rihanna still remains unbothered - in fact, she extended her lead and is now on over 192 million records sold. AMAZING!

Nicki Minaj and Hailee Steinfeld also got some certifications recently, but that didn't move a spot on the list.

 

Fergie and Camila Cabello move 2 spots - the former BEP singer is now #25 while former 5H singer is #52.

Bebe Rexha moves 1 spot and surpasses Carly Rae Jepsen.

 

I added Julia Michales - she's the last one on the list though.

Kesha‘s whole discography as Ke$ha is actually undercertified because her certifications haven’t been updated since 2011, so the difference is probably even bigger.

We don’t call her Legend X for no reason.

you should consider doing separate lists for singles and albums. Mixing them just doesnt seem right

Selling 5 million albums is clearly not the same as having some cute streaming that got your single to be 5xPlatinum

OP updated.

 

Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez and Bebe Rexha all got one certification for an album (Miley) and for singles (J. Lo and Bebe) but they all remain at the same position as before.

 

Camila Cabello moves 3 spots and cracks Top 50 with her latest certifications for singles.

 

Also, new addition to the list - Becky G.

RIAA really need to make these certifications automatic like their UK counterparts. It's becoming ridiculous in 2018
