New Katy Perry single pushes her previous album back up the charts
July 24, 2010 by Beatweek
Despite the release of its title track this week, Katy Perry’s new album Teenage Dream won’t be available for another month. But with Teenage Dream (the single) and California Gurls currently battling each other for singles chart dominance in iTunes, another Perry release has also unexpectedly found its way up the digital charts: her debut album One Of The Boys, released back in summer 2008, has suddenly climbed to the number five position overall on the iTunes album charts. The resurgence of Katy’s earlier work, which featured songs such as “Hot n Cold” and “Waking Up In Vegas” is also no doubt being helped by its temporary price reduction to $6.99. But if Perry’s cache is such that her now two-year-old debut album can climb all the way back up to number five, it leaves little doubt that Teenage Dream (the album) will easily debut at number one overall when it’s released on August 24th.
