Katy Perry On Track For Her Biggest Sales Week Ever
New single Roar predicted to sell 525,000 plus downloads in first week…
Katy Perry looks set to bag her biggest week of sales ever for her new single Roar!
According to Billboard, industry insiders predict Perry's track will have sold between 525,000 and 550,000 downloads by the end of the tracking week, which commenced in the US on Monday August 12 and wrapped on Sunday August 18.
The official figures will be released by Nielsen SoundScan tomorrow (August 21), and if the projections are correct Roar will nab Katy the biggest sales week of the year so far.
Initial sales predictions for Roar were sitting around the 400,000 downloads mark, with that figure later revised to 450,000 before being adjusted yet again.
By comparison, Lady Gaga's latest single Applause is expected to sell between 200,000 and 225,000 downloads.
28-year-old Perry's biggest sales week to date was driven by the release of Firework, which sold 509,000 copies in its first week of release back in 2010.
Both Katy and Gaga are set to perform their new tracks at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, which will air on MTV UK from 8pm on Monday August 26.
