Katy Perry’s Roar Outselling Lady Gaga’s Applause

Katy Perry’s “Roar” single and Lady Gaga’s “Applause” singles are going head-to-head this week. Billboard reports that Katy’s new single is on track to outsell Gaga’s new song by a margin of more than two to one. Katy Perry’s “Roar”
is on target to sell 525,000 to 550,000 downloads and “Applause” is on track to sell about 200,000 to 225,000.
These are big numbers for both artists, but Lady Gaga’s sales are smaller than some of her other singles. For example, she sold more than 500,000 downloads in a week with her “Born This Way” single. It is also possible “Applause” downloads could get a bump from her appearance on Good Morning America yesterday. Billboard says the official sales figures for both songs will be announced tomorrow by Nielsen SoundScan.
