Congratulations, Katy Perry!

The ‘Birthday’ singer just accomplished an incredible feat — she just became the most certified digital artist in music history, meaning that she has received more gold and platinum certifications than any other digital artist. Work it, girl!

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) awarded Perry with the impressive honor last night (June 25) in Washington, D.C., and announced that her digital single certifications totaled to 72 million, including the 9x multi-platinum ‘Firework,’ the 7x multi-platinum ‘California Gurls’ and the 6x multi-platinum ‘Dark Horse’ and ‘I Kissed a Girl.’

“Katy Perry is a force to be reckoned with in music,” RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman said in a statement. “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,” he continued. “We congratulate Katy and her team on all her success.”

Talk about making it like your birthday every day!
