I'm glad they didn't decide to ignore Dark Horse like they did to Peacock. Girl is gonna live at the top of Billboard for weeks.

I thought that Katy asked several radio stations if they'd be willing to play Peacock, and they all said no.  And besides, I thought music critics considered Peacock to be one of the worst songs ever written.  Dark Horse, on the other hand, is unique, and has nothing objectionable, and can attract listeners from a variety of genres.  Dark Horse I've seen compared to E.T., and I think that is a good comparison.  E.T. of course was a huge hit, but I doubt that Peacock would have been nearly as big.

Music critics and charts have nothing to do with each other.

On UK iTunes it's really bad. Dark Horse is #224, and Prism itself #245 .
Prism has worldwide sold just over two million, and considering that half of that was sold in the USA it isn't that much really all over. I thought it would do better in sales. I think what Prism and all the singles coming out if it really need is a world tour ;)

Peacock just isn't radio friendly, especially in the US, that's all.  :lol: There is a clean version but it just doesn't sound right. Garbage or not it still is a fun song and Katy did an amazing performance of it for her CDT.

In the UK Katy spoke about the song alan carr in 2010 and it was obvious its not appropriate for radio stations

What is the clean version of Peacock?  There wouldn't be much left to the song.  lol

Keep in mind that if a song doesn't get radio airplay, most people won't become aware of it, other than real fans who buy the entire album anyway.

Is that a radio station that plays nothing but Katy Perry songs?

This board seems to have a lot of members from the UK, and I know Katy's tour is starting in the UK, and it seems she spent more time in the UK promoting Prism than in the US.  I was therefore under the impression that Katy was really popular in the UK.  Is that not the case?  Or was Teenage Dream really popular there, but not Prism for some reason?

Conalae will probably come later and chime in. Anyway, the UK is the largest music market in the world but also has their own separate music industry. There are so many popular British acts it's really hard for American acts to compete with them. And as you know many of those acts often dominate US charts as well.

No she is really popular over here, American music dominates our charts far more than UK music does in the US, I don't think we should be worrying about Dark Horse just yet (especially not out of the US)... but apparently Prism is now at #289... How on earth is it ANYWHERE NEAR that low?? There MUST be some kind of mistake... what on earth would make it drop 44 places in two and a half hours?

Artpop is at #103 or something (and that's bad anyway) and everyone knows Prism is doing better, ... I see in HMV all the time that they've reduced the price of Artpop to I think £7.99 , but are still selling Prism at full price (£9.99 and £12.99), so that must mean that Prism is selling better that Artpop, no? This must be a mistake...

EDIT: Now at #293, in a few minutes it will be gone... something must be wrong.

this is called a signature. doesn't seem to do much but I think it secretly has a superpower it uses when I'm not looking. just a feeling.

Thanks for clearing that up. But that really sounds screwed up though.
