Thanks to some insane sales, Perry is now officially the first artist ever to have three songs — "Firework," off 2010's Teenage Dream, and "Roar" and "Dark Horse," the smash singles off her 2014 album, Prism — achieve diamond status. That means they've sold the equivalent of 10,000,000 units each, or gone 10 times platinum, to make Perry one of the best-selling singers in the game.
The Recording Industry Association of America, a.k.a. RIAA, threw out a congratulatory note to Perry after crunching the numbers. She, in turn, flipped out.
You've always been a
plastic bag diamond to us, Katy. Congraaaats.
