Roar clocked in with an impressive 557,000 downloads in its first full sales week — making it the third biggest digital debut and sixth largest sales week for a digital song in history, as well as Katy's best yet!

These numbers almost triple those of Lady GaGa's, as Applause debuts in the #3 spot with 218,000 downloads, falling just behind Robin Thicke's summer-long smash, Blurred Lines, which still manages its strength at #2. As far as the Hot 100 goes, Katy is #2 behind Robin, while GaGa sits at #6.
Katy's light-transforming new album debuts October 22, and we can only imagine the numbers for the whole package will reflect the mass appeal and beautiful artistry she's shown with her impressive first single.
