If your name happens to be Katy Perry, it’s safe to say you’ve got quite a bit to smile about today.
For, in what can only mark a monumental moment in her career, this week saw her 2010 release ‘Teenage Dream‘ achieve a mind blowing feat, by enjoying a sales increase of 451% in the space of a single week.
Exciting details below…
Spearheaded by the release of her acclaimed ‘Popumentary’ ‘Katy Perry: Part Of Me’, the release rose by 22 spots on the Billboard 200 to #2 with sales of 76,555 copies.
Impressive, as the project is now two years old but outsold Justin Bieber’s ‘Believe’ and Usher‘s ‘Looking For Myself’, both of which were released less than a month ago.
Sat one spot beneath Chris Brown‘s ‘Fortune’, ‘Dream‘s sales boost meant she was a mere 57,000 units away from securing the #1 spot- a spot she may enjoy if sales of the album are unfazed by the release of Frank Ocean’s ‘Channel Orange‘ which is set to dethrone Brown in the coming week.
Thus far, ‘Dream’ has been certified 2x Platinum in the US, 3x Platinum in the UK and a whopping 4x Platinum in Canada, debuting with sales of 192,000 copies following its August 2010 launch.
