After peaking at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, ‘Horse’ hops, skips and jumps over releases spawned by Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Beyonce and Ke$ha and now grazes at #1 on iTunes USA!
Platinum in New Zealand and peaking at #21 in the UK, the Juicy J- backed ‘Horse’ comes courtesy of Perry’s fourth studio album ‘Prism‘, now certified Platinum in the United States and saw her acquire the largest first week sales figure for a female artist in 2013 thanks to the 286,000 fans who purchased it in the market.
However, thanks to the 617,213 units moved by Beyonce‘s self-titled new set in the first three days of its release, the performer no longer holds the enviable record.
