Katy Perry has won a vast amount of awards throughout her career and now the star has added to her collection as she was named the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) highest selling digital act in the history of Gold and Platinum awards!
With a huge total of over 72 million sales, this makes her the first artist to go over 70 million. This is incredible seeing as Katy has only released three albums!
She doesn’t have to worry as she is a safe 20 million sales ahead of her closest competition who is Rhianna with 52 million sales closely followed by Taylor Swift with 51 million sales.
The chairman of the RIAA said:
“Katy Perry is a force to be reckoned with in music. She embodies all that makes a true global superstar: the musical talent, the extraordinary drive and genuine charisma, and an intrinsic connection with her fans.”
Katy is currently on the American leg of her Prism World Tour.
