Katy Perry, the most watched musician on You Tube in 2014

The American songwriter and singer added another feather to her cap by being the most watched musician on You Tube the previous year. She accumulated a total of 2.4 billion views, attaining the third position overall but the first among musicians. Though Perry did not release any album last year, she seemed to be basking in the success of the release of her studio album, Prism in 2013 that got her many laurels, including a nomination to the 57th Annual Grammy Awards.

Apart from being the sixth bestselling album in the world in 2013, it also was also in the Top 10 best selling album category of the United States in 2014. The song that attained a huge commercial success from this album was the Dark Horse, featuring a guest verse from the American rapper, Juicy J. This song was at the number one position for a long time. It has also ranked third among the best selling songs on iTunes. The ancient Egyptian theme of Dark Horse attracted viewers the most. ‘Birthday’ and ‘This is How We Do’ were the two other videos that got a lot of popularity. In fact the viewers are just fascinated by her performance in the studio album and the watches are increasing day by day.

The previous year seemed to be a good and productive professionally for Perry with hopes that this year too may prove effective for her with the Grammy nominations waiting. The 1st of February, 2015 will see Kate Perry performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
