Holy shit that's so many sales for a first week single. This might rocket up to number 1 right away between youtube and sales. Forget about radio streams

I enjoy both singles for what they are. The production on "Roar" is, in my opinion, better than "Applause," however.

Yeah but she's the only artist to ever have 5 #1 singles from one album other than Michael Jackson. So kind of get why they tried to break it with the 6th.

I'm just happy this "destroyed" "Applause".

Katy Perry > Lady Gaga. Any given day.

Agreed, I feel like Roar has a pretty boring Lumineers feel and that is not something that I'm particular interested in coming from Katy Perry. They've done a pretty good job with the promotion though.

I wouldn't say it sounds much like the Lumineers, but it's definitely boring.
