Katy Perry Makes History With 3rd RIAA Diamond Song Award

Katy Perry made history this week when “Roar” became her third single to reach Diamond status by moving more than 10 million equivalent song units in the U.S. “We are thrilled to recognize Katy as the first artist to earn three Diamond Song Awards,” RIAA Chairman/CEO Cary Sherman said in a statement announcing the landmark. “…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.“ In addition to “Roar,” Perry’s “Firework” and “Dark Horse” have also been certified Diamond. Eminem and Lady Gaga are the only other artists to lodge two Diamond awards, for “Not Afraid“ and “Love the Way You Lie“ and “Poker Face“ and “Bad Romance,” respectively.
