Katy Perry makes another historic accomplishment by being the first artist ever to earn three Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Diamond certifications. “Roar” was released as the lead single from her fourth studio album, “Prism,” in 2013.
“Once again, Katy Perry has made history,” said Cary Sherman, chairman and CEO of the RIAA for MSN. “We are thrilled to recognize Katy as the first artist to earn three Diamond Song Awards. Katy has a singular track record of notable Gold and Platinum achievements, and this triple Diamond milestone is now forever etched in our program’s history. Only 14 songs have earned Diamond status to date, and Katy owns three of them — what a remarkable achievement and testament to a groundbreaking artist.”
