She’s finally done it!
After seeing her attempts to new single ‘Roar’ to #1 thwarted by Robin Thicke‘s Hot 100 domination with ‘Blurred Lines’, Katy Perry has seen her hard work pay off this week.
Yes, that’s right.
Full story below…
Four weeks after its release, ‘Roar‘ has now rocketed to #1 on the Hot 100, snatching the top spot away from Thicke to be crowned the highest selling single in the country this week!

Outperforming Eminem’s meteoric smash ‘Berzerk (#3)’, ‘Roar’s rise also sees her fight off competition from Miley Cyrus‘ ‘We Can’t Stop’ which- quite interestingly- dropped a spot following her VMA performance, now perched at #4 in its thirteenth week of release!
Elsewhere, John Legend reigns supreme on iTunes R&B with his new single ‘All of Me‘, while his new LP ‘Love in the Future’ secures the #4 spot on the chart’s albums tally, helped in part great part by the momentum surrounding the romantic number.
