What, it's like 9 singles per album? MESS :deadbanana2: 

 

Rihanna has like 40 with 8 albums out of which some of those shouldn't even be considered singles, because they were released in certain region only.

Yes (as does the US) but it's worth noting that it's actually harder to get platinum certifications in the UK than in the US.

In the UK, you need 600k for a platinum single. In the US, it's 1M but with a much larger population.

So, adjusting for population, 1x platinum in the UK is roughly equivalent to 3x platinum in the US.

 

I always like to point this out when Rih's UK stats get brought up, because I think a lot of people don't realise just how impressive they are.

He has 4 albums each with at least six singles, the last one greatly inflates the total :rip:

They re including promo singles too plus he has popular album tracks that are plat as well that I don’t think are included :cm:

All songs are included. Ed hasn't released that many singles, but many of his album tracks got enough sales and streams to earn a certification.
