Drake Surpasses Eminem To Be The Most High-sell Singles Artist In Riaa History

Drake is named the most certified solo artist in RIAA history, surpassing his fellow commercial giant Eminem.

“The 6” God continues his run of records on the 8th day (December 8) by securing 10 certificates from the Recording Industry Association of America and bringing his total to 184 million sold singles.

This number pushes Drake ahead of Eminem who was recognized with the distinction in March, after having racked up the milestone of 166 million units on his catalog of singles.

Drizzy’s historical RIAA record includes two diamond certificates to “Hotline Bling” and “One Dance,” celebrating at the very least 10 million units sold in the U.S.

He’s only the third person in the history of hip-hop to record at minimum five diamonds in a single. “God’s Plan,” “SICKO MODE” with Travis Scott and “Life Is Good” with Future are the remaining three artists to accomplish the feat.

Drake’s new shiny hardware places him in a prestigious group along with Bruno Mars and Post Malone with five and six diamond singles, respectively.

It is believed that the Toronto local is close to achieving records for most certified RIAA song that’s owned by Post Malone and Swae Lee’s “Sunflower” and Lil NasX’s “Old Town Road,” both of which are 17x platinum.

Drake’s 2017 Scorpion smash “God’s Plan” soared to 15x platinum on Thursday, further extending his lead to become the most-sold single from his catalog.

Another fierce competition is brewing in the midst of Drake as well as Jay-Z. In the month of March, the OVO star broke Hov’s record of the his most no. 1 spots in the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in the world of rappers, which was 14, thanks to his most recent chart-topping album, Her Loss.

Drizzy has a perfect 14-for-14 charting back to his debut major label album Thank Me Later which came out in the year 2010. JAY-Z’s streak started with his third album Vol. 2… the hard Knock Life in 1998.
