Along with the likes Taylor Swift and Rihanna, Perry is one of the leading artists among the digital sellers. Up to an incredible 135 million digital downloads, the most unbelievable fact is that she did so with mostly three album eras. Her main 12 singles from them add for a whopping 108 million. I Kissed A GirlHot N Cold, California Girls, Firework and Roar sold over 10 million each, making Perry the only female artist ever with 5 songs past 10 million units sold. Teenage Dream, E.T. and Dark Horse are all fairly close too.

The era of Teenage Dream as a whole is up to a stunning 65,85 million copies, the second most prolific era of all-time in this format, only topped by Lady Gaga‘s The Fame.

Witness fails to do well in this format with only one million selling song, Chained To The Rhythm.
