if CB2 is successful she’ll end up third or even second highest certified ever :rip: what if she ends up being #1. Barbz will not survive this 

She’s not surpassing Rihanna or Taylor Swift. :rip:

I doubt her next era will come close to the numbers of “IOP”.

 

Rihanna never came close to “GGGB” #’s, even with “LOUD”, and Taylor Swift has never come close “Red/1989” #’s since.

 

Overall, I can see Cardi B climbing to the top five with features and only as long as those above her remain under-certified ie. Beyoncé (who is severely under-certified) Madonna, Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga etc. Even with Rihanna at #1, she’s still under-certified by over 60M units. :toofunny2:

Britney's peeps can release a new vinyl every other week but can't certify her catalog. We know now after Alicia's discography got updated that RCA can make it happen.

But Alicia's were done at the start of a new era.

Britney's probably won't be done until the rollout of B10. She has over 65M single and album sales units that need to be included. Possible video sales too.

It appears Cardi would have 42M certified singles +59.5M lead certified singles +5M albums (IOP shipped 500k units in the US alone in 2019 and 2020 when the album was already approaching 4M eligibility) could put her at 106.5M (this includes WAP) at #6. #4 and current #6 seems to have done a huge cert update over the years.

 

#1-3 likely have tons of uncertified numbers

#5 had an upgrade over the past year or so so she relies on xmas upgrades.

 

If Beyonce, Britney and Adele along with #1-#3 ever decided to do an overhaul update then I could see the numbers ranking:

1. Rihanna

2. Taylor

3. Adele 

4. Nicki 

5. Beyonce

6. Cardi

7. Katy

8. Mariah

9. Britney

10. Gaga possibly taking #9 with newer material in the 2020s

Whitney, DC, TLC, Shania have all had their certs updated while not being in a new era. B10 ain’t happening anytime soon (if ever) so there’s no point in waiting around.

And her records are still very undercertified. She should be close to or over 50 million if she gets complete updated.

It only is registered for Christina Aguilera so I guess Pink won't get an update
