RIAA methodology should be authomatic as UK's BPI

America is the peak of hypercapitalism. Theyre obv going to profit off of eveything incl certifications.

How is Taylor still not above Rih when she released 4 or 5 albums since Rih's last? She must be massively undercertified.

OP updated. Ariana enters Top 10.

She isn't. She has received 31 RIAA certification plaques since March, 2018. 4 of them were for albums and 27 of them were for singles across her entire discography so I'd say her certifications are pretty up-to-date. 

 

Rihanna has also received 27 RIAA certification plaques since February 2018, so I wouldn't say she's that much undercertified either.

Is Mariah under certified anywhere? 

i'm sure a lot of her singles are (though AIWFCIY was update this past Dec to 8x Platinum)

Because the list on the OP includes features (which RIAA doesn't count, they only go by lead credits) and double counts single certifications, as they are already included in an albums' certification.

The RIAA may not count certifications for featured artists but features count in the "records sold" tally for every artist and that's what this list is about.

A pointless tally when it double counts singles.

It doesn't and you're only saying that because of how the streaming era accounts for SEA+TEA. "Records sold" has always been singles + albums + videos and that's how it still works till today.

How does it not when album certifications now already include the sales and streams of singles? A single that's certified 10x platinum will make its parent album platinum eligible. Combining both those certifications for a total tally of 11M is counting the single units again.
Taylor Swift for example did not sell 46M album units in addition to 142M single units; those single units (at least the ones from her albums) are already included in the 46M tally.

 

Records sold made sense when singles and albums were certified based on how well they sold on their own. But that's not the case now, as the single consumption is now part of an album certification.

I will never understand why you have singles and albums together with the same ratio.

I wish XL and Columbia updated Adele's certifications. She would be at #6 :WAP:
