Teenage Dream reaches platinum
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - February 3, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream album has been certified platinum in the Philippines.

Handed out by Polyeast Records led by its operations manager Jesmon Chua, the official licensee of EMI Music International in the country, Katy accepted the award after her show last Jan. 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. EMI Music and Polyeast Records are also happy to announce that after three years of Katy chart dominance, Teenage Dream spawned a record-breaking five No. 1 singles on the Hot 100 and earned Katy Perry the title of being the only female artist to achieve that feat as she matched Michael Jackson’s similar historic accomplishment with his Bad album in 1988. The latest single The One That Got Away might also have a chance to the first six Hot 100 chart-toppers and a possibility to break Michael’s record.

Bringing the total hauls to more than 30,000 copies sold in the Philippines, songs that did it for Teenage Dream were Teenage Dream, T.G.I.F. (Last Friday Night), which joined California Gurls, the title track, Firework and E.T. on Katy’s hit parade. Katy first graced Manila in November 2009 with a sold-out concert performing her peppy, irresistible songs from the debut album One of The Boys.

Recently, Teenage Dream was nominated at the 2011 Grammy Awards ceremony for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album. Katy has also been nominated for three American Music Awards, including Artist of the Year.

One of the Boys and Teenage Dream are available in all record bars nationwide released by Polyeast Records.
