Katy Perry is basking in the sun of her latest record Prism, as the album boasts over one million copies sold in 11 weeks on the market.

The album moved roughly 51,000 copies last week, lifting the total to 1.02 million. and making Prism her third million-selling album of her career, as reported by Nielsen SoundScan.

Previously, One of the Boys (2008) and Teenage Dream (2010) boasted more than one million albums sold. The latter record has since gone double platinum, according to the RIAA.

The sales of Prism has been bolstered by the multi-week No. 1 lead single "Roar," which borrows textures and beats from Sara Bareilles' equally-anthemic "Brave;" the ballad "Unconditionally" (which peaked at No. 14 on the Hot 100); and the latest entry "Dark Horse," featuring Juicy J.

"Dark Horse" charged from No. 11 to No. 6 this week on the charts, becoming the singer's 13th Top 10 Hot 100 smash.
