Katy Perry bags two RIAA Digital Diamond Awards

MUMBAI: With hit singles like ‘Firework’ and ‘Dark Horse’ in her kitty, singer Katy Perry is the first female artist to have bagged two Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Digital Diamond Awards.

In addition, Perry was the first artist ever to exceed 70 million cumulative certifications in the RIAA’s Gold and Platinum Digital Single program, and the fifth artist in history to earn Diamond status for a digital song, according to a statement from Universal Music.

As the cherry on top, the 31-year-old's ‘Roar’ has now been certified as 8x Platinum.

‘Prism’, Perry’s latest album, debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, hit the top spot on iTunes in more than 100 countries, and has been certified quadruple Platinum in the US.

The ‘Prismatic World Tour Live’, a concert film shot in Sydney during Perry’s December 2014 visit to Australia, will be released worldwide on Friday via Universal Music Group.
