Katy Perry has just added yet another impressive stat to the pile, thanks to YouTube.
The singer’s official video to ‘Roar’ has pounced into the record books as its most-viewed female music video ever, with a whooping 3.2 billion views. Its updated count further distances itself from nearest competitor ‘Shake It Off’ by Taylor Swift (which currently sits at 2.98 billion views)
‘Roar’ which served as the lead single from Perry’s 2013 ‘Prism’ album, debuted at #1 upon its release with 557,000 digital copies sold in its first week (the second biggest digital debut sales among females at the time).
It has since been certified Diamond in the United States, denoting sales equivalence of 10 million.
