XXXTentacion surpasses J. Cole to be among the top 20 best-selling artists of all time in terms of digital singles sales.
With billions of views on her music, XXXTentacion has officially entered a very exclusive list, becoming one of the top 20 best-selling artists of all time.
The news comes as it has surpassed J. Cole in sales of digital singles, with 49 million units certified according to the RIAA. J. Cole previously was one spot ahead of him at $ 48.5 million.
This is a great achievement for the late legend, who has been widely criticized for his status as one of the greatest artists of his generation. With songs like “SAD!” and “Moonlight” still racking in millions, it is likely that it could eventually move up this list.
He’s currently right behind Future, which has moved 50 million individual digital units, also closing in on Flo Rida and Ariana Grande.
At the top of the list is Drake, who has sold 163.5 million certified units. The only people who seem to have a chance to top it are Taylor Swift and Rihanna, but at the rate Drake moves on, he’s likely to lock in first place for a long time.
