Katy Perry Scores 8th #1 Single with “Roar”
She’s always been a fiercely successful singer, and Katy Perry just hit the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with her new track “Roar.”
The occasion marks Perry’s eighth time at #1, and the fact that she beat out the controversial Robin Thicke hit “Blurred Lines” is a little added ‘girl power’ bonus.
Katy’s first top single was “I Kissed a Girl,” followed by hits like “Firework, “Last Friday Night, “Part of Me,” Teenage Dream,” and “California Gurls.”
“Roar” is the lead single from Perry’s forthcoming album Prism, slated to hit stores and online retailers on October 22nd.
