Katy Perry | Charts & Sales

Recommended Posts

From Paul Grein's Chart Watch:

Katy Perry's Teenage Dream rebounds from #11 to #8 in its 36th week. The album has sold more copies during its run than any other album in this week's top 20 (1,429,000). Last week, it surpassed the total sales to date of Perry's 2008 debut, One Of The Boys, which is up to 1,381,000.

Perry's current hit, "E.T." (featuring Kanye West), this week surpasses Cee Lo Green's "F**k You (Forget You)" to become the #1 digital seller so far in 2011. "E.T." has sold 2,493,000 copies in 2011. "F**k You" has sold 2,489,000. Perry, you will remember, had the #1 digital hit of 2010, "California Gurls" (featuring Snoop Dogg).

"E.T." is #1 the Hot 100 for a fifth week. Only two of Perry's many hits have had longer runs on top. "I Kissed A Girl" topped the chart for seven weeks in 2008. "California Gurls" was out front for six weeks in 2010.

"E.T." tops Hot Digital Songs for the seventh week. That's the longest run by any song since "Love The Way You Lie" by Eminem featuring Rihanna topped the chart for seven weeks last summer. This is the fourth week in which sales of "E.T." have topped 300K. Only three other songs in digital history have topped 300K in weekly sales four or more times: Flo Rida's "Right Round" and Perry's "California Gurls" each did it four times. "Love The Way You Lie" did it five times.
