We’re almost hesitant to say it, but Lady GaGa might have to move over a bit next week!
That’s right, Katy Perry‘s Part Of Me is on track to do so well that it’ll be the biggest debut since Lady Gaga’s Born This Way!
We’re talking a projected 400,000 to 420,000 downloads by week’s end on Sunday, Feb. 19 — which isn’t far off from GaGa’s 448,000!!
She can’t be stopped!
What’s funny is that both Katy and GaGa had similar releases… Katy premiered Part of Me on the Feb. 12 Grammy Awards ceremony, Gaga premiered Born This Way a year ago on the Feb. 13 Grammys — two days after the single hit digital retailers.
It comes down to Katy basically doing the numbers in seven days that GaGa did in three. That’s still absolutely impressive!
That’s all fab news for Katy, especially because next week’s numbers are going to be big for a lot of competition. We’re talking Adele after her wins, Whitney Houston, and Nicki Minaj‘s new song as well.
Congrats to everyone!
