Katy Perry just made history. The “Save As Draft” singer now has three songs among the only 14 that have ever passed 10 million sales/streams. As such, she is the only person to hold three Diamond Song Awards from the Recording Industry Association of America.

“Roar” is the most recently awarded song to put Perry over the top. Before “Roar” made super strides, Perry had been tied with Lady Gaga and Eminem for most number of Diamond Song Awards.

Chairman and CEO of the RIAA Cary Sherman released a statement about Perry’s win.

“Once again, Katy Perry has made history,” Sherman said. “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 & 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.”

There may be mixed reviews about Perry’s Witness songs, but the singer herself is making huge strides in the music industry and in the social media game. Just one week ago, she became the first Twitter user to net 100 million followers.
