RIAA 10x Platinum Solo ArtistsDirections
Name the solo artists with at least 10 RIAA album certifications across all albums before time runs out. Solo artists for this quiz means artists typically known to by just their name – occasionally may have their band’s name in the artist title as well, but just answer with the name of artist. Object is most total certifications, not artists. (Gold = 0.5, each platinum = 1). Total certifications and # of gold/platinum albums shown.
Curious as to how the classifications between solo vs otherwise is done? Just found it interesting how Dave Matthews & Sade make the list, for example, whereas the likes of Santana & Bon Jovi don’t. All four are eponymous bands named after the band’s lead, but only two of the four qualify here.
kind of just a judgment call.
Should Katy Perry not be included? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katy_Perry_discography?
I’m completely stunned that neither David Bowie or Cyndi Lauper have sold more than 10 million albums in the USA…
Bowie’s at 9.5, Lauper at 8.5
