Okay, it’s official – Australia has fallen in love with Katy Perry and it appears there’s nothing that any of us can do or say to change the fact. At the same time as her single, ‘I Kissed A Girl’ has pOpped it’s way to the number one spot Stateside, it’s impacting in a BIG way back here in Australia. Not only has the single become the No.1 most added song at radio in it’s very first week, it’s slammed it’s way to No.1 on the iTunes chart and has raced into the ARIA Singles chart this week at a very lucky No.13 – all of this on downloads alone! The physical single release, according to an EMI rep is ‘still a few weeks away’, and the album ‘One Of The Boys’ is still not on the local release schedule, but if these early indications are anything to go by, this young woman is going to be HUGE!
UPDATE (July 04): ‘I Kissed a Girl’ CD single released July 14, ‘One Of The Boys’ album released August 04.
