Ke$ha Hype Selling Like Mad
Additionally, this week marks her 3rd week in the #1 spot on the SoundScan Digital Songs Chart and the Billboard Hot 100. Last week Ke$ha set the record for the biggest track sales week by any female artist in history (and #2 overall) when her debut single "TiK ToK" received 610,069 downloads.
Additionally, Ke$ha, who co-wrote "TiK ToK" along with the rest of her debut album Animal, also has the unique distinction of being featured on the only two tracks to ever sell over 500k singles in one week, "TiK ToK", as well as Flo Rida's 'Right Round" the current record holder for biggest track sales week.
Ke$ha released her debut album "Animal" (RCA Records / Kemosabe Entertainment) earlier this week and is it holding strong as the #1 album on iTunes. Ke$ha performed "TiK ToK" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien this week and has performances on Lopez Tonight, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and Wendy Williams next week. Conan O'Brien called her "the first breakout star of 2010", Rolling Stone said
Ke$ha currently holds the Canadian record for the biggest track sales by week of any artist in history. With 8 consecutive weeks at #1 on the Australian singles chart and counting, 5 consecutive weeks at #1 on the New Zealand singles chart, and 8 weeks in the Top 10 on the UK single chart already under her belt, Ke$ha is primed for worldwide domination in 2010.
