Katy Perry ‘Roars’ With 40 Million Radio Impressions

Published: Thursday 15th Aug 2013 by David

With ten days to go until she rocks the MTV Video Music Awards in NYC, Katy Perry finds herself dominating US radio, helped in part by her recently announced Clear Channel deal.

A domination, that sings to the tune of 40 million radio impressions!

On course to end the year as one of its highest selling releases, the last week has seen ‘Roar’ reach an audience of 40 million listeners in the US alone, earning it the #29 on the Billboard Radio Songs tally.

Calculated by adding the total number of listeners tuned in to all formats when the song was spun on those formats, the single’s impressive reach will explain her current iTunes reign- seeing it perched at #1 on iTunes USA.

Of course, as Lady GaGa‘s ‘Applause‘ cat walking its way to radio glory in the coming week,  Perry does face serious competition- especially with GaGa set to unveil the video for ‘Applause’ on ‘Good Morning America’ this coming Monday!

    The Clear Channel deal explains it.

      I thought Mariah Carey was the only one who uses PAYOLA

  3. . : : h 2 o : : . August 15, 2013

    I like her thighs in that pic ….

    And congrats!

  4. Mike August 15, 2013

    She’s so HOT!!!!!

  5. Shaytan August 15, 2013

    I’m a huge Katy fan and I have tried but I can’t get into this song. Its boring as sh*t!

    I’m not here for Gaga but I love her song.

    Something is wrong me.

    • COCKINESS August 15, 2013

      i agree with you completely

    • Anne August 15, 2013

      Both of those songs are AVERAGE at best. Neither is really #1 worthy.

  6. Bey Is Grown August 15, 2013

    Good for her.

  7. jfkasy August 15, 2013

    I love the lyric videos but my gaga’s video is crazy insane that looks like an 80s club scene.Good job both of you!

  8. Truth commission August 15, 2013

    WOW! Katy perry is really pretty. Her thigh game is on point. Her pose is very attractive with that very short red dress. You can’t sit her and tell me she is NOT attractive.

    Lady gaga needs to take some seats. Ain’t nobody got time for you being naked in the woods like a zoo animal. Take some classes from miss Katy perry!

    *read my name* YOU KNOW WHO I BE

    • Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) August 15, 2013

      Have you not seen this chick without makeup?! She’s just as bad as Lady GaGa looks without makeup.

  9. King August 15, 2013

    You better slay Katy. And she looks stunning in that pic.

  10. queen-Brules August 15, 2013

    the real ‘queen-B’ rules is back! and this bicth is basic

  11. queen-Brules August 15, 2013

    AND that picture is bland!

  12. rih rox( gaga’s old nose….don’t you wanna pat it and feed it a carrot?) August 15, 2013

    Both are crap but, Katy’s one is better. Gaga is still stuck in the dance music . Glad Rihanna switched up with unapologetic.

    I listen to house,trans,dance music from various unknown artists and always have….rihanna’s voice is very much suitable for that stuff and of course Rih is very versatile.

    Katy and gaga seam to be stuck in the past and everything seems the same… I think its due to the fact they aren’t versatile.

    I want Rih to release something else from unapologetic.

    • queen-Brules August 15, 2013

      blah blah blah>they all boring as s***……………gaga, riwhora and forgetable katy

  13. rih rox( Rihanna forever) August 15, 2013

    Say what you want about Rihanna, but at least she knows how to pick ’em.
    She knows how to change it up.
    She knows how to be versatile.

    • Barb B**** August 15, 2013

      Her team knows

    • stephy the lambily August 15, 2013

      Hint word pick’ em… Cause tha b**** sure aint writing & producing none of those hits. LOL Singing other peoples songs. You are so brainwashed by Rihanna it sickening to read…

      • rih rox( Rihanna forever) August 15, 2013

        Well neither do a lot of other artists including Whitney who has never written any. Rihanna still sprinkles her own touch so did Whitney.

        Not comparing their vocal abilities here…just saying Rih works well with what she is given and her unique voice puts the icing on it.

  14. rih rox( Rihanna forever) August 15, 2013

    Katy is pretty, it shows and she knows it too. She has an exotic look about her….dark hair is her best friend.

    That other creature knows its ugly and so does the rest of the world. Nudity doesn’t really do much…. not when you got a face like that and a nose that is bigger than her boobs.

    The is nothing she has left to offer now….she used up all her gimmicks way too fast. She can’t shock anyone unless she starts eating her poop.

    • stephy the lambily August 15, 2013

      Katy Perry really does not look like that in real life tho.

      • rih rox( Rihanna forever) August 15, 2013

        Your probably talking about that pic that her ex husband released. Either way she does have exotic look to her. Big blue eyes, dark hair and nice face shape…..bad skin..yup! But still nice looking chick….nice legs, nice arms and nice boobs.

        I just dislike her lower waist and hip area…. something strange about that erea.

      • rih rox( Rihanna forever) August 15, 2013

        Your >>>> you’re

      • Marley August 15, 2013

        @Rih Rox Katy is not naturally that dark! She is actually a BLONDE. Exotic look my ASS!

  15. Barb B**** August 15, 2013

    I still don’t like the song but I think I prefer it to applause.

  16. Gyro August 15, 2013

    That daddy gay gay creature is an ugly drag queen lol and know what I can’t even shade her video because it shades its damn self.

  17. Lovebird (roar – prism – 10.22.23) August 15, 2013

    Legs for days, HOT HOT HOT.

  18. Thetruth August 15, 2013

    She bought the impressions. Where’s the wow in that, they’ll drop significantly day 8.

    • Gyro aka king August 15, 2013


  19. Loyalty August 15, 2013

    I don’t know if its worth praising since she had a Clear Channel deal. But she is less annoying than Gaga right now. I was here for Gaga but she is slowly starting to get on my last nerve already.

  20. cake like lady gaga August 15, 2013

    It doesn’t really count though because she bought that airtime. So…..

  21. stephy the lambily August 15, 2013

    She looks exotic in photos but in real life she looks like a basic white chick

    • Pour It Up August 15, 2013

      True Story

  22. S****** Blonde August 15, 2013

    U gonna hear me Roarrr…..

  23. Pour It Up August 15, 2013

    I love Katy but come on she paid for it so its not an achievement.

  24. Blue August 15, 2013

    once the deal comes to an end rolling effect is gonna be a b**** to her…she will lose most of those impression…im torn though
    on one hand im glad she is blocking gaga in america soon gaga will lose her inherited hype
    but as riri fan this girl is racking up this number 1s too quickly

  25. cake like lady gaga August 15, 2013

    Next thing the b**** is gonna sell Prism at 29c…

    The struggle for #1 is real

    • caribbean native August 15, 2013

      ha a lady gaga fan throwing shade about dropped price on albums, B**** BYE!!!!

  26. Valerie (barb) August 15, 2013

    The pic is photoshopped Katy isn’t that cute in real life!

    • Ruleyou August 15, 2013

      shut your ugly ass up. I bet you’re a fat black ugly b****.What the heck is not cute in real life?

  27. DIGGER BEY August 15, 2013

    And neither is Icki stretched face ass.

  28. Marley August 15, 2013

    Mkay. But dead at people saying she is exotic. The girl is an average looking white girl with fair hair naturally. She looks nice in that picture thanks to a whole lot of hair dye and body spray.

    • rih rox( Rihanna forever) August 15, 2013

      Who cares? I’m sure Beyonce is a natural?… natural blonde right?

      Anyways I use to confuse Katy with other chicks in Hollywood. Just Google Katy Perry look alikes….just for fun.

      • Marley August 15, 2013

        What does Beyoncé have to do with it? No one here is claiming she looks exotic.

  29. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 15, 2013

    ‘Applause’ will drag this s*** through mud,fire,rain and snow all over the charts

  30. BEYHIVE_MINAJ August 15, 2013

    But in all honesty- I love katy(who doesn’t?) but I ain’t feeling this it ain’t one of her best.Thats why I’m saying,applause has a better chance of getting to #1

  31. Ruleyou August 15, 2013

    Damn Katy’s body is gorgeous as f***. I see why you hating ass hood rats running your big ugly lip. You want Katy to be as ugly as you. I don’t think so. She is a bad white chick with nice legs,face and hair.

    Roar b******!!

  32. MRDIVABITCH August 15, 2013

    This basic ass h** not only rips off Sara Barailles 3 months after that chick’s song is released, but also engages in payola. Pfffff, b****, have several.

  33. AAlan August 15, 2013

    Congrats too Katy #welcomeback
