She may lack their vocal prowess, but if digital domination is what the likes of Lady GaGa and Beyonce are after, Katy Perry now stands as the one to beat.

Recently topping the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ with her Urban bop ‘Dark Horse‘, today saw the star celebrated by the ‘Recording Industry Association of America‘, after she became the ‘Top Certified Digital Artist Ever.’

Good news below..

Snapped alongside Capitol Music Group’s Greg Thompson and the RIAA’s Cary Sherman, Perry celebrated the news on Twitter with…

The ‘RIAA’ explains:

Katy Perry has made Gold & Platinum (G&P) Program history.  The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has recognized the Capitol Records artist as its most awarded digital act in the history of Gold & Platinum awards, the industry’s premier program for celebrating artistic achievement in the marketplace. 
Eighteen Katy Perry songs, from early favorites like “I Kissed a Girl” and “Hot N Cold” to popular new releases like “Dark Horse” and “Birthday” are included in Perry’s 72 million cumulative Digital Single Certifications counting downloads and on-demand streams.  The new batch of certifications vaults Katy to the top of the RIAA’s list of artists with the most G&P Digital Single Certifications, and makes Perry the first artist to surpass the 70 million digital award threshold – 20 million ahead of any other artist.
More than 32 million new cumulative certifications were awarded today including a 9x multi-Platinum for “Firework,” two 7x multi-Platinums for “California Gurls” and “E.T.,” three 6x multi-Platinums for “Dark Horse,” “Hot N Cold” and “Teenage Dream” and more.  Katy’s career RIAA tally now encompasses 18 Gold, 16 Platinum and 56 multi-Platinum Digital Single Awards, in addition to her 2x multi-Platinum album “Teenage Dream” and Platinum album “One Of The Boys.”
Launched in 1958, the ‘Gold & Platinum’ program reached out to the digital world in 2004, as to acknowledge the rise of digital music formats and their impact on the way consumers accessed music.
On Perry’s success, Sherman shared:
Katy Perry is a force to be reckoned with in music. We are honored to recognize Katy as the most successful digital artist in Gold & Platinum Program history.  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.  This award is a reflection of her deep commitment to those qualities and to her music, which has propelled her to this historic milestone.   We congratulate Katy and her team on all her success.

      .
      Katy > Rihanna
      .
      numbers don’t lie

      • Rihboy June 26, 2014

        Its not rihannas fault the masses want more every year lol. No one told katy to only make three albums. Maybe she would have sold more. So your right you cant compare. Rihanna put out more so she has more. I dont understand why they keep trying to throw katy into the mix. Its not like she cares about her music. She just puts out what her managers say. Atleast rih approves of what she releases and shows us that she spends time in the studio. Unlike katy screamy who just llooks clueless on stage. Shall we post the latest four live performances from her. Bye felicia!

      • FAF June 26, 2014

        But sis no one asked rihanna to release every yr either in fact it took until her 3rd era to pick up enough steam to fund more than three videos

  3. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 26, 2014

      Celine: 230 million
      Whitney: 200 million
      Rihanna: 160 million
      Gaga: 100 million
      B: 80 million

    • JOHNVIDAL June 26, 2014

      But only the first 4 are there thanks to big album sales who conquered the world. The rest are there only thanks to singles sales. So basic compared to the big 4: Whitney, Mariah Celine and Madonna. I lived their peaks and I know what I´m talking about. Katy Perry or Rihanna are faaaaaaaarrr from being as big as those 4 were/are, the worldwide respect they had… and other legends doing it at the same time like Bruce, Queen, U2, etc. People loved music and being one of the most successful meant tremendous respect and was a proof of talent. Now people know that even if they hear these people´s last songs on the radio all the time they aren´t as good, they are not as respected, and few people would pay for their albums.

    • truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 26, 2014

      How many did that FAT BIITCH U stan for sales ho? And how many FULL cd did these ppl aales u ho? Altho uo numbers are a lie i just wanna c wat u will say…biitcg

    • Royalkev June 26, 2014

      LOL. Why do people always downplay artists stats (and inflate their favs).

      Whitney is not 175, she’s @200M
      Bey has sold over 100M

    • TABLEUX June 26, 2014

      Honey Britney has sold nearly 200,000,000 if not more. Pop her on that list and don’t disrespect the QUEEN.

    • Lolz June 26, 2014

      Beyoncé has sold over 100 million in singles ALONE. Try again.

  10. There once was a pimp and his h**…. June 26, 2014

    #Not here for it

  11. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 26, 2014

    SHE NEEDS TO RETIRE! STOP POLLUTING RADIO STATIONS, YOUTUBE/VEVO, AWARD SHOWS, AND OUR ENTIRE WORLD WITH YOUR BASIC REDUNDANT ASS MUSIC! GOODBYE FLOPTY

    • Career Ender June 26, 2014

      Mariah failed this decade, don’t hate on Charty Pery
      .
      she punching ALL females in the game. sales wise. Albums and singles combined
      .
      stay hating

  12. B’rocka Slays June 26, 2014

    honestly to me, I have more respect to an artist who has high physical sales. It shows that people are willing to get off their b*** in this day and age , and go to the store and buy because they really wanted it

  13. Skyfall June 26, 2014

    How did Teenage Dream get 5 #1 singles. And a rerelease But still get outsold by Born this Way, Loud & 21. Not only that but Lana just sold 1million copies of BTD this year in the US and it is about to outsell teenage dream.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 26, 2014

      Do you still like Mariah?

      • Skyfall June 26, 2014

        Yes she’s my 2nd fav after Adele. And Rihanna’s my 3rd

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 26, 2014

        Oh okay. Cause they’ve been calling you fake/flip-flopper the other day. Lol

      • Career Ender June 26, 2014

        this stupid baby elephant is a flipflopper
        .
        it does not stan for Adelephant

    • Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 26, 2014

      B*tch how many times are you going to try this drag? Teenage Dream sold 6 million worldwide, the same as R******. Only difference is Loud was Rih’s 5th album, TD was Katy’s second. Lets compare TD to A Girl Like Me though. BTW sold around the same too.

  14. Stephy Tha Hive/Lambily June 26, 2014

    Katy Perry is coming for Rihanna’s wigs with only 3 albums & NO BIG features DEATH!

  17. Stephy Tha Hive/Lambily June 26, 2014

    KATY PERRY IS SINGLES QUEEN!

  18. Rosie June 26, 2014

    I see Capitol putting all that payola to good use.
    Why can’t they do that with any of their other artists? Coldplay is much more global and can actually SELL ALBUMS and have their singles smash worldwide. The most promo I’ve seen them do for anyone else was with Sam Smith last week.

    • Molly June 26, 2014

      Hey sis you were right pills n potions did exactly what you said it would do freefall the next week lol meanwhile our girl is #1 for a 5th week.

      • Rosie June 26, 2014

        Death. Didn’t they say Rude was gonna be #1 this week? Iggy still #1&2 on both the Billboard charts and radio. Slaying.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

        Lol Exactly i like that rude song tho…

      • Rosie June 26, 2014

        Rude was already a huge hit in my country so I’m sick of it but as long as it blocks Wiggle I’m cool.

      • Molly June 26, 2014

        Oh really? i just heard the song for the first time last week lol and f*** wiggle that song is straight trash smh i heard the gags Stans were looking for you girrrl.

      • Rosie June 26, 2014

        They’re looking for me? Are they trying to drag a ~70K difference in sales with three months of preorder, $25 million in promo, an iTunes discount in its first week of release, all during Q4 and the biggest sales month if the year? They’re so pathetic. And I haven’t seen them around lately, probably MIA since their fave’s “smash ~arena!!!~ tour” isn’t even grossing $1 million per date on average.

  44. Pariah Scarey Flop Hard June 26, 2014

    Around the time of Mariah’s Glitter bomb, Roger Friedman – who would later become part of Mariah’s PR team – came out with this article that explained how Mariah scored number one hits in the 1990s: by releasing them for 49 cents while the regular price of a single was $1.99. At some outlets, singles actually sold for $2.99. At this time, Billboard’s charts were heavily measured by sales, which were more important than airplay at the time.

    This trend seemed to start with the single “Honey,” released in the Summer of 1997. Even though the song didn’t have high call-out research, it zoomed to number one based on sales. Mariah’s 1997 album, Butterfly, was selling far below the amount expected. It was eventually certified five times platinum based on overshipments: this number is far more than the actual amount the album sold.

    Mariah’s chart manipulation continued with the “number one” single, “My All,” released in 1998. Several musical outlets sold the single for 49 cents while the song garnered mediocre call-out research and less than spectacular airplay.

      Girl Bye! That is old news! Elvis Presely’s record companies paid off Disc Jokeys top play his music to score those 18 number 1 hits!.
      .
      Berry Gordy PAID radio stations MILLIONS to play their music & The Surpremes got those 12 number 1 hits! BYE!
      .
      All Mariah did was lowered her prices! So, what she could afford to do it! Its business boo! BYE!

  46. Pariah Scarey Flop Hard June 26, 2014

    In the Fall of 1999, Mariah released her Rainbow album and “Heartbreaker” single to bad reviews. “Heartbreaker” was stalling in airplay but became a huge example of chart manipulation. The song zoomed to number one as soon as it was discounted to 49 cents and 99 cents at many outlets. The follow-up single, the barely known “Thank God I Found You,” zoomed to number one based on the same manipulation.

  47. Ekusive Chanteuse Is A Dust Collector June 26, 2014

    In 2001, when Mariah released the first single “Loverboy” from the musical abortion known as Glitter, more of the media started to notice Mariah’s strategy. “Loverboy” zoomed to number two based on being discounted for 49 cents and the fact that some record stores were actually giving it away for free. However, the song failed to garner any airplay and soon left Mariah headed to the mental hospital.

  48. Elusive Chanteuse Is A Dust Collector June 26, 2014

    Mariah Carey just rush recorded her new album, Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel, to be released only fourteen months after the failed E=MC2 album. Her singles “Bye Bye,” “I Stay in Love,” and “I’ll Be Lovin’ U Long Time” have bombed on the music charts. Her new single with The Dream, titled “My Love,” sank faster than the Titanic. There is a lot of desperation going on and this can easily be seen by Mariah’s photoshopped “Obsessed” single cover. Whatever happens, let’s hope Mariah doesn’t make a return trip to the mental ward.

    LOL.

    Last time Mediatraffic updated their sales, Confessions on a Dancefloor was at 9 7000 000 copies and The Emancipation of MImi at 9 5000 000 copies. Madonna has sold only 1.7 million in the USA and still managed to outsell Mariah, interesting 😀

    And those 12 million for both are inflated, probably shipments for Pigriah.

    The Twittersphere was up in arms at Pigriah Scarey last year after she falsely tweeted that her latest single, ‘#Beautiful,’ is number one in 30 countries. As of today, the song is struggling in almost every country it has been released and stalls on Billboards Hot 100 at number 20. This isn’t the first time Mariah has desperately tried to inflate her numbers.

    Throughout this year, Team Pigriah has constantly announced that Pigriah is the biggest selling female artist in history with sales of over 200 million albums. The problem — those 200 million albums cannot be verified!!!

    Madonna has sold over 300 million albums and those sales have been verified. Just a couple years back, Team Mariah was claiming she sold over 160 million albums. Given that all her albums have bombed recently, there is no way she sold 40 million albums in just a couple years.

    It has also been noted that Pigriah’s list of number one songs is also manipulated, especially since several of Pigriah’s number one songs weren’t actually hits, they weredeeply discounted to 49 cents when other singles sold for $2.99. PIGriah’s career is shamefully based on inflated numbers and chart manipulation.

    What a shame….

    • Stephy Tha Hive/Lambily June 26, 2014

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 26, 2014

      LIES EVERYWHERE!! #beautiful hit #1 in 30 countries ON ITUNES (which is what she referred to, not the main singles charts). Madonna’s sales ARE NOT verified, especially since a lot of era work came out in the 80s when there was no way of counting actual sales but instead they just went with certifications (shipments). Keep clinging to the discount sales when you have no proof. That was only reported for Loverboy. Explain why Mariah is the best selling female of SoundScan you pressed soul?

    Unfortunately, many people are still under the false impression that Madonna has musical talent and that she writes her own songs.

    Some people don’t realize that Madonna has stolen other people’s work.

    In some cases, people who have written songs that have appeared on Madonna’s albums have not received any (or full) credit for their work.

    Madonna’s most well-known songs, the ones that made her famous, were not written by her (such as Borderline, Like a Virgin, Material Girl, Like A Prayer, Papa Don’t Preach, Crazy For You, Open Your Heart, Into the Groove, and Dress You Up), and she is not even listed as being co-author on many of her hit songs (including most of the ones just listed).

    In some cases, Madonna has received co-writing credit merely for adding one or two words, or only one or two lines, to lyrics that were written by someone else.

    Some want to argue that because Madonna plays musical intstruments this is somehow proof that she has musical ability.

    It is known that one of Madonna’s earliest boyfriends tried to teach her how to play the drums, and she dabbled in it before she became famous, but what we don’t know is if she was any good at playing the drums.

    If Madonna can play the drums adequately, why haven’t we seen her play the drums on any of her tours or music videos?

    Why isn’t she credited for playing drums on any of her own albums (and I wouldn’t count the “cow bells” from the self titled debut album; please, a three year old could play the cow bells.)

    If Madonna was in fact talented at playing the guitar, the drums, or any other instrument, I wonder why she has always relied on studio musicians and others for her albums?

  72. Stephy Tha Hive/Lambily June 26, 2014

    In my opinion, one of her worst, most disgraceful and brazen rip offs was the work she outright stole from Prince protégé, Ingrid Chavez. She stole Chavez’s style and lyrics for her song, “Justify My Love” which is featured on her “Erotica” album.

    Chavez said, “Madonna only changed one line of the entire song” and stole writers credit for the song, even though Chavez was the one who wrote it (this has been said of her by other credible writers as well involving other songs. The song did match Chavez’s trademark style, which at the time was once again unlike anything Madonna had done. Much like my style of music is unlike anything Madonna has done. An article excerpt:

  73. Stephy Tha Hive/Lambily June 26, 2014

    The saddest of all these allegations is by a group named Hide The Babies. They published a web site that contained the allegation that they gave Madonna’s manager their demo (cassette) in the 80’s, she liked it and asked if she could keep it. She returned the tape to them 6 months later. They alleged that shortly after one of their lyrics appeared in Madonna’s song as the basis for “Like A Virgin,” but not credited to them. A group member stated they felt she did this because she figured if she got her version out first it would render their version useless.

    Madonna’s lyric for “Like A Virgin” goes: “Like a virgin. Touched for the very first time.”

    Hide The Babies lyric goes: “I’m not a virgin, but you’re the first one…”

    That’s the same lyric, just changed up a bit. It’s also the same concept/pun about not being a virgin, but someone seemingly making you feel like that.

    It appears to be the same thing Madonna did with my song “Contemporary Girl.” She took lyrics, tried to change it up in the same manner, but just enough to retain the idea and concept of the song and some of the lyrics, hopefully without getting caught.

    “Like A Virgin” was Madonna’s first real hit and credited to another writer that her label and management hired. However, this allegation of theft bears a pattern that would later be said of several other songs Madonna allegedly composed. I saw an interview on Bravo recently with producer Nile Rodgers, who said Madonna told him at the time that the concept of the song “Like A Virgin” was such a good idea and kept emphasizing this point to him.

    The article from Hide The Babies web site states, “Then when her tune came out we couldn’t do ours anymore because everybody thought we got it from her.”

    Wow when you think about that statement it is profoundly sad and terrible considering “Like A Virgin” was such a big hit that allegedly came from this band who are saying they did not get credit for it. Hey, I have to write the word “allegedly” in this case for legal purposes, however, their words do strike a chord, pardon the pun, based on what I experienced with my song that was ripped off by her. It bears the same pattern

Loverboy which was released in 2001 which became Mariah’s first lead single to not go #1 peak at #2 and was the best selling single of 2001. 2003 Charmbracelet which was a moderate success was said to be the end of Mariah little did they know she’d be back to slay with “The Emancipation of MiMi. She got her biggest solo hit We Belong Together which was #1 for 14 non consecutive weeks. Also blocking herself from going #1 with Shake it Off. All which happen 15 years after her debut. After all of that Mariah still had 2 more #1s under her belt. To this date @Careerender non of beyonces albums have outsold TEOM WW or in the states.

      • DIGGER BEY June 26, 2014

        Biitch I think u should kiss my ass crack because I clearly don’t give a damn about what u say or think dumb ass delusional h**

    • Royalkev June 26, 2014

      Exactly! I’m not wishing Rihanna fail, but who earns 50mil these days with 1(or even 2) eras! Whit’s at 200 mil, Rih supposedly has 150! I don’t know where that Lamb is getting these numbers from.

      • Teacher June 26, 2014

        Biitch please! You know you want Rihanna to fail! No one these days sale like they did back then! And you’re pressed as f**** still hung up on those record sales mad bcuz Rih has sold 150M records and Beyoncé’s basic ass hasn’t even passed 100m yet!

    • Royalkev June 26, 2014

      @Teacher

      B**** why are you always responding to me? You must track down every Bey stan just to have a stupid Bey/Rih debate. I rarely engage in that! My comment was about Rihanna surpassing Whitney’s sales. That wouldn’t be likely unless she sell 50+ million. Where did I lie dumb f**k? Skyfall predicted that she will with R8! Your foolish ass just agreed with my POV in your last comment (so AGAIN, it’s sensible to conclude that those kind of sales don’t happen in 2014). As for Bey’s sales, I’m more than certain she’s over 100 mil (with 5 eras). Stay bothered.

  94. Slayty Perry (Prismatic World Tour) June 26, 2014

    Kiiii @ Career Ender putting you queens and stans of lessors in place! Who the f*ck cares if you don’t think she’s respected? Who cares about your opinion of her music? It doesn’t change the fact that she just made history. It doesn’t change the fact that the Prismatic World Tour is slaying. It doesn’t change the fact that Prism has sold over 3 million copies worldwide, 1.4 in the US, in just 8 months while your fave takes a year to sell that. Katy Perry is winning and dominating every b*tch in pop music. Find a seat and learn to deal with it.

    • Yours Truly June 26, 2014

      Ignore them sis. They’re haters. I am going to the prismatic tour my mom bought the ticket she didn’t tell me it was a suprised now I’m so excited

Who I like? I’mma be honest, you know what I’m sayin’? Somebody that’s really attractive is Beyoncé.” – Chris Brown … “[Janet on the up & coming divas] Beyoncé.” – Janet Jackson… “Actually, I really wanted to ‘do Beyoncé.’ Because this really was kind of an era in her career. I think that females tend to compete with each other & it’s kind of stupid & ridiculous. I wanted to tribute her. ” – Lady Gaga .. “I love Beyoncé. Beyoncé is fabulous. I think she’s a great writer, great singer. She’s a very sweet person as well. Very sweet.” – Mariah Carey … “The B girl. She is just like old school, new school, everything wrapped up. She can put on a show like NOBODY else. She knows what to do when she gets the microphone. She knows how to be kind to people. She knows how to be just that s*** thing that she is. And she knows how to LOVE her audience. And she does. And she’s not phony.” – Patti Labelle… “Beyoncé. Definitely. The first thing I saw was her beauty & how beautiful she was. Then I listened to her music & I loved her music. She’s incredibly talented. I think she’s what every female artist should strive to be, strive to be like. You know, despite all her success she still remains humble.” – Rihanna… Too many artists look up to this woman her impact and power alone >>>

      KING B has crossed 32 million with BEYONCE

      • Yours Truly June 26, 2014

        Why are these haters lowering her Records when she has sold over 140 Million Records solo & 70 Million Records with Destinys Child?

  99. Yours Truly June 26, 2014

    Ok I’ll stop so many pressed souls. Ugh .. Congratulations to the female MJ katy Perry keep proving haters wrong. I bought Prism & I love katy so much 🙂

    • Proud-Arianator June 26, 2014

      Uhm think you’re taking it a bit too far by calling her the female MJ but I still got love for you sis

  100. Skyfall June 26, 2014

    The fact that I can still purchase tickets to Prismatic tour for her show on the 27th (which is tomorrow) through July 18 on the first page alone on ticketmaster indicates she struggling to sellout. Why is Born To Die about to outsell Teenage Dream?

    • GaGa’s Tampon June 26, 2014

      Death at Katy not selling out her uk dates

  101. Yours Truly June 26, 2014

  102. Teacher June 26, 2014

    Lol….Ch….BYE!

  103. IStanForYourFav June 26, 2014

    Well, from what I have seen and Sales as of 2014:
    Madonna: 320 mil
    Mariah: 250 mil
    Celine: 230 mil
    Whitney: 200 mil
    Janet: 150 mil (underestimated the most)
    Rihanna: 150 mil
    Barbra: 145 mil
    Britney: 120 mil
    Taylor: 101 mil
    Cher: 100 mil
    Lady Gaga: 100 mil
    Beyoncé: 80 mil (solo) 65 mil (DC)
    These sales are phenomenal and etc., but they don’t make you a legend. Your impact and etc create your legacy. Aretha, Diana, Tina, Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, and Janet are the most influential women in music history so even if the newbies and etc catch up, their impact will need to match the sales to be considered a legend. No shade to anyone.

    • Teacher June 26, 2014

      Lol Beyoncé’s basic ass sales!

  104. XO June 27, 2014

    Mariah’s new album…..a dust collector. 😀

  105. Stephy Tha Moron/Cowry June 27, 2014

    Moooriah Carey apology after she screeched her way through Michael Jackson’s memorial seemed more about her than Michael Jackson. Her voice has become a shadow if its former self. She has replaced singing with screeching and whispering.

  106. Yours Truly June 27, 2014

    Very Wrong! provide receipts, link them? Beyoncé’s sales can’t be 80M records when she has sold over 100M singles WW. That’s wrong its 134M solo and 70M DC. Those sales are inflated wikipedia s***. Even if you count all Beyoncé’s eras and albums they don’t equal 80M can I break it down for you??? . Beyoncé surpassed Britney Records sales btw

    • IStanForYourFav June 27, 2014

      Think about what you’re saying! IF you add B album sales including all 5 eras she does come up to 80 mil. DIL 12 B’Day 8 IASF 9 4 3 & Beyoncé 3.3 equals near 35 million albums alone. Britney’s first record sold 32 million so how exactly does she beat out Britney?

  107. Queen_Adele July 2, 2014
