    Katy Perry "roared" and her fans responded.

    Her new single "ROAR," the first from Prism, out October 22, sold a whopping 557,024 downloads in its first week of release, achieving numerous milestones, including the biggest Digital Song sales week of 2013 to date and two personal bests for Perry.

    Perry bested herself with "ROAR," as the song surpassed the digital sales of "Firework," which sold 509,000 copies the week ending December 26, 2010. It also surpassed the digital debut of "Part of Me" for the week ending February 12, 2012, which is the period when that song sold 411,000 downloads.

    Congrats, Katy. We love hearing you "ROAR."

    Do you love "ROAR?" Did you grab a download, like 557,000 other people? Are you loving it? Or were you underwhelmed? WE LOVE IT!
