Looks like Katy Perry‘s Teenage Dream has come true, as her album has soared to number one on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart. Funny enough, this is the first album by a female artist to make it to number one since Ke$ha reigned the charts back in January. Why is that funny? Because I feel that Ke$ha and Katy Perry are the two artists that have received the most hate on our site by writers and readers alike, yet the charts show that most people are buying their albums when they reach number one.
Katy Perry beats her own record of previously peaking at #8 on the charts with her 2008 debut album, “One Of The Boys,” which featured the hit, “I Kissed A Girl”. In her opening week, she’s sold 192,000 copies of her album (Have you seen them in STARBUCKS!? – I’m sure that helped!) Fantasia is at number two with “Back To Me” and Eminem has moved down to number three with “Recovery“.
I’m still crossing my fingers that Peacock is released as one of her singles from the album and that she makes a video for it as well – or better yet, uses this one.
