Katy Perry's "California Gurls" debuts at #1 on the Hot Digital Chart
Things are much rosier over on the Digital Songs chart this week, where Katy Perry's "California Gurls" (featuring Snoop Dogg) debuts at No. 1 with 294,000 downloads sold. It's Perry's best debut sales week for a single and will certainly garner her a top five debut on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart when it's released on Thursday (May 20) morning. If it debuts as forecasted, it will be Perry's fourth top 10 hit and highest debut on the sales/airplay-hybrid Billboard Hot 100 chart.
