    Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010), which made her the only female artist (tied with Michael Jackson) to have five No. 1 singles from one album on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (“California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night”). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. With the singles “Roar,” “Firework,” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10-million threshold, including song sales and streams, Katy is the only artist to earn three RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. Katy Perry’s fourth studio album, WITNESS, debuted in June 2017 at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and No. 1 on iTunes in 46 countries. The lead single, “Chained to the Rhythm,” set the record for the biggest first-day Spotify streams by a female artist and is now certified Platinum, with over one billion streams worldwide.
