Where to start with Katy Perry, she’s announced a new single, a new album, she’s closing the MTV VMAs this Sunday in Brooklyn New York and, we’re not done yet, she’s closing this years iTunes Music Festival in London at the end of September.

Not only that but her latest single ‘Roar’ has just topped the singles chart in Ireland. This gives Katy her fourth number one single in Ireland so far.

After seven weeks at the top of the Irish chart ‘Wake Me Up’ by Avicii has now slumped into second place. Elsewhere in the Irish singles  chart Ellie Goulding moves into number (3) with ‘Burn’ while ‘Counting Stars’ by OneRepublic remains at number (4).


Making a comeback is Ireland’s own Samantha Mumba as she enters the chart at number (5) with ‘Somebody Like Me’.

Lady Gaga is working her way up the charts with ‘Applause’ which moves one place into number (9) and charity single ‘The River’ by Suspects & Guests makes a leap of 84 places from 100 down to number (14).
