Nobody in 2016 matched the album success of Drake's "Views" so it comes as no surprise that the rapper wins the RIAA's Top Certified Album, which went 4x multi-Platinum.
Meanwhile in pop music, Beyoncé ("Lemonade"), Ariana Grande ("Dangerous Woman"), Pentatonix ("A Pentatonix Christmas") and Sia ("This Is Acting") did it best as the four artists receive the Platinum Pop Album Awards for 2016.
The RIAA has also revealed that Beyoncé and Rihanna were the only two artists to earn three Pop Song Awards in 2016, which is an incredible way to close out an equally epic year for both ladies.
Rihanna earned hers with "Work," "Kiss It Better" and "Needed Me" while Beyoncé's "Formation," "Hold Up" and "Sorry" were her biggest pop hits.
