When you add it all up, Drake is the RIAA king.

Chart Data has calculated that Drizzy has 226 million RIAA certifications, topping Elvis Presley's 191 million. Certifications can come from singles, features, and albums.

Elvis didn't get the benefit of features, and they didn't have streaming when he was on top. (Instead, you would listen on the radio, which doesn't lead to certifications.) On the other hand, Elvis's music career began in 1954 and has existed since, whereas Drake launched around 2007.

Here are the top ten, which includes Eminem at number 3, Kanye at 6 and Lil Wayne at 10.
