Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Headed To Number One With 270,000+ First Week Sales Tally

f32dcb85cded2965308e8bd76b31d787 Katy Perry’s ‘Prism’ Headed To Number One With 270,000+ First Week Sales Tally

The good news for Katy Perry? Prism, as expected, is headed straight to number one on the Billboard Hot 200. According to predictions, the enlightening LP is set to sell between 270,000 and 290,000 copies in its first week. That figure could well increase (or fall) but mid-week numbers usually give a fairly accurate indication of the final tally.

It’s hard to tell if those numbers are a roaring (sorry, I couldn’t help myself) success or minor disappointment. On the one hand, they represent a huge improvement on Teenage Dream‘s opening week, which netted 192,000 sales, and should be enough to overtake Miley Cyrus as the best first-week figure for a female artist in 2013.

On the other hand, the enormous success of “Roar” and the iTunes domination of buzz singles “Dark Horse” and “Walking On Air” hinted at a blockbuster debut. There are plenty of potential singles on Prism, so perhaps it will follow in the footsteps of Teenage Dream and become a slow burn mega-seller.

Is an opening bow of 270,000 — 290,000 copies sold a good start for Katy? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
