KATY PERRY After becoming the fastest-rising single at pop radio in more than four years, Katy Perry’s ‘California Gurls’ has shattered another record by scoring more than 13,000 spins in one week for the second consecutive week on both the BDS and Mediabase charts. ‘California Gurls’ has become the all-time Mediabase Top 40 airplay record holder with 13,167 spins in one week — an average of 92 spins per week at a pace exceeding 13 times per day.
Katy has set records and turned radio upside down,” says Greg Thompson, executive vice-president for promotion at Capitol Records. “This track has broken all-time spins records, and achieved massive Hot 100 audience numbers of historic proportion.”
FYI, Katy Perry’s ‘California Gurls’ has spent 3 weeks at No. 1 at pop radio (setting the record for the quickest ascent to the top spot since Gwen Stefani’s ‘Hollaback Girl’ in May 2005) and made the biggest leap to No. 1 since Mariah Carey’s ‘Shake It Off’ in September 2005.
It has also spent 8 weeks at No. 1 on the iTunes Singles chart. Last week, ‘California Gurls’ reached an audience of 140 million, also the largest ever for a Capitol artist. It is expected to reach an audience of 150 million Hot 100 listeners this week.
‘California Gurls’ is Katy Perry’s first single from the upcoming studio album Teenage Dreams, out August 24th in the U.S. and Canada and August 30th in the rest of the world.
