It may not be as Hot 100 friendly as ‘Teenage Dream’, but at the rate it’s selling, Katy Perry‘s ‘Prism’ is paced to outshine its predecessor on album charts.
Already besting ‘Dream’s first week sales to give Perry her best first week outing to date, today brought with it news that ‘Roar’s parent album has now passed the “million sold” mark in its 11th week (a feat it took ‘Dream’ approximately 20 weeks to accomplish).
Now, as if this news of the singer’s third million-selling album wasn’t enough for KatyCats to celebrate, it comes on the heels of news that the “killer queen” will be collaborating with Queen of Pop Madonna for a new project:
“… “PRISM,” passed the 1 million sales mark this week, according to data from Nielsen SoundScan. The album sold 51,000 copies last week, bringing its cumulative tally to 1,020,000 in 11 weeks on sale.”
The announcement follows news that Katy Perry will act as a guest curator for Madonna’s “Art for Freedom” project – an online public art project that solicits artists to submit videos, poetry, photographs, and music , that encourage expressions on or about “freedom”.
The humans right effort will see Perry’s pick receive a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization of their choice. And, with Madge’s new album set to be in full production mode, pop fans are also hoping the queens’ collaboration extends to a studio.
