Prism is projected to have a record sales week…
Billboard reports that Katy Perry's Prism is on course to debut at No. 1 on next week's Billboard 200 chart.
The set is on course to sell around 275,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, October 27. The album was released on Tuesday (October 22) and is Perry's third studio set. This will be Perry's second No. 1 album release. The projected sales tally for Prism would mark the largest sales week ever this year for a female musical artist, surpassing Miley Cyrus' Bangerz which debuted at No. 1 with 270,000 copies sold a week ago.
The album is led by the No. 1 Hot 100 single, "Roar," which has sold 3.24 million downloads. Perry's last No. 1 album was 2010's Teenage Dream, which debuted with 192,000 copies sold in its first week atop the chart.
