Drake, Adele, and Taylor Swift Lead RIAA’s Top 10 Albums Of The Decade

Rap superstar Drake and pop superstars Adele and Taylor Swift have been crowned the artists of the decade after dominating the RIAA’s album sales chart for the last 10 years.

Drake scored double honors – Views takes fifth place on the RIAA countdown, and Scorpion rounds out the top 10 at 10.

British soul sensation Adele leads the pack in first and second place with her respective releases 21 and 25. Swift comes in at number three with 1989, while Red lands her another mention at four, and Speak Now places sixth.

The soundtrack for hit Broadway musical Hamilton and Doo-Wops & Hooligans by Bruno Mars are the only other two albums to crack the 2010s countdown at seven, and nine, respectively.

Specific figures for the combined sales and streaming rankings have yet to be published, but RIAA bosses had previously certified Adele’s 21 as shifting 14 million equivalent U.S. units in September, 2016.
