OP updated!

new certifications for Rihanna, Madonna, Beyoncé, P!nk, Xtina, Destiny's Child, Ariana & Dua Lipa

You still forgot Mariah's My All cert (Silver, 200K)

 

And I think Celine's "Taking Chances World Tour - The Concert" album was recently certified Silver (60K). Dont know if you added that one yet.

I am a RiRi stan but we can't compare singles that were sold for 99 cents on itunes with physical singles that cost $4 ad you had to go to a store to get them.

But it's all relative, I'm sure that at the time it was considered cheap. Just like now 99 cents is thought to be cheap.

Anyway my point is prices change as time goes on it's just how the market works. So the most accurate way to measure sales/popularity would be with units sold. I mean right now some albums cost £4 outright so who would sell songs for that

OP isn’t even comparing Artist A vs Artist B but simply listing everyone’s certifications numbers. 

- Think everyone knows music has been and will continue to be consumed in various mediums as time goes on. 

Exactly
