Just ridiculous and definitely meaningless ... now I don't believe that one single person can understand anymore the RIAA certifications (for singles but especially for albums)...

When I tought that the 21xPlatinum certification of "Cracked Rear View" was impossible to understand even with downloads and streamings (especially when the numbers used in the subjective certification "calculations" are not made public...) now we have:

Eagles:

"Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975" = 38 (yes thirty-eight) x Platinum (bye bye "Thriller"...?)

"Hotel California" = 26 x Platinum

PS: not confirmed but apparently the physical sales of the singles taken off an album or belonging to the album (in the case of compilations) now are also being added to an album certification...???

Year after year, the RIAA certications become more and more ridiculous, IMO.
I mean, after multiple counting for double or triple albums (what a joke, already, as if you could choose to buy just one of these two or three or four records sold altogether)..., after counting simple streams as real sales (why not apples and oranges ?), now they would add the physical sales of an album to the total sales of this one ?... Come on...
If it's confirmed, and I wouldn't be surprised by this new change of rules. it would be the ultimate decision I was waiting to bury this irrelevant institution which is became meaningless.
Sorry to be so rude but frankly the last certifications for The Eagles are absurd. And, I precise that, no, I'm not a kind of Jacko stan disappointed after Thriller has lost its crown... lol.

1,500 streams from the album = one album sold
10 individual song downloads from the album = one album sold
Then of course there are the normal digital and physical album format sales.

Given that individual downloads from the album are being counted as sales, its only natural that physical singles from the album sold will also be counted as well. The question is, for physical singles which in the past cost more than digital downloads, will it be the same 10 sales = one album sale, or would it be different.

Another option in all this is just to disregard RIAA certifications after January 2013. At least prior to that time it was based on strict album sales only.

The alternative for the RIAA would be keep the old standard which would mean rarely anything would be getting certified or recertified again. Normal album sales, whether they are digitial or physical are so tiny now that most of these albums would never be recertified again. The top 100 selling albums of all time in 2012 would likely be much the same 50 years later if the old rules were used.

Most music is now consumed through streaming. The RIAA has to find away to reflect that fact and continue to award popular music. I don't like that this has happened, but I don't know if there is a better option.

I think you could say there is the RIAA before 2013 and after 2013 and to remember to distinguish album sale certification before and after that time.

Not sure. The Greatest Hits 1971-1975 and Thriller seem to be neck to neck. Probably around 30,5 million of pure sales for the both of them in the US. Very hard to guess which one got the point.

I'm wondering if they will add the physical singles sales of Thriller to its 33XP (with streaming). If they do it, Thriller could be 40 or 41XP, lol...

It’s not from the physical singles.

The downloads... yes, “Hotel California” is one of the most downloaded songs of that era. I’m sure the streaming in the wake of Glenn Frey’s death has helped that number, but their catalog sales have always been impressive.
