RIAA posts mid years update, Olivia Rodrigo Drivers license is top digital single, Justin bieber and Olivia Rodrigo are top albums*

Recommended Posts

The 2021 Mid year report is upon us. 


Disclaimer It's well noted Morgan wallen with over 3 Million units sold actually will be Billboard's top album of the year when the top of 2021 is revealed in December.


Top digital single is Drivers license with a triple platinum certification 


Top albums by certification is Justice by Justin bieber and Sour by Olivia Rodrigo as both are certified by RIAA as Platinum (But MRC Data actually states it's Morgan wallen, but due to being dropped by his label, the label hasn't sent his Music to be audited by the RIAA, which is a separate organization from the MRC data, both cancel each other out).

Top latin album is Karol G (RIAA has separate sales thresholds for latin music, it doesn't require a latin track or album to sell the same amount as an English track, the numbers are extremely less, but can change given latin Music's extremely popular in the US, it's noted it makes people dance, and unlike mainstream pop it rarely goes political and causes a divide which is a common theme in English pop Music in the US)


However thanks to the controversial Music video, the satan shoes, etc..Montero (call me by your name) can and probably will actually dethrone Drivers license by Olivia Rodrigo as the top single, given how Olivia's first non Disney single was released way back in January of this year, so Lil Nas X might deliver the night blow to Olivia Rodrigo and might top the triple platinum single of Olivia..


Does any of the music The RIAA certified for 2021 in music reflect your personal taste, I have noticed once again, hits are rarely made, and probably due to the pandemic people prefer the Music of the past cos it's a comfort thing as @Jordan Miller once put it.
