Eminem certified as the second highest-selling musician of all time

Eminem is now the Recording Industry Association of America’s second-highest selling singles artist of all time, thanks to a recent set of digital single certifications issued by the organization.

Slim Shady — who is closing in on the 20-year anniversary of his 1999 major label debut — has moved 107.5 million certified units (in sales and sales equivalent units from streams), overtaking pop heavyweights Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, who now occupy the third and fourth positions respectively.

Congratulations to @Eminem ! 107.5 million song awards. Three Diamond Songs.

Rihanna is still the highest-selling artist in RIAA history, with a total of 121 million certified units sold to date.

The RIAA issued Eminem with over 40 new digital single certifications on Wednesday (February 28), including fresh nods for his two highest RIAA-selling songs: 

“Love the Way You Lie,” which went 12x platinum, and “Lose Yourself,” which went 10x platinum (aka diamond certified).

Em’s recent additions mean he is by the far the RIAA’s highest selling rapper of all time, with Drake (55 million), Kanye West (51.5 million) and Lil Wayne (32 million) far behind.
