Roar by Katy Perry was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 14, 2013 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song is a bouncy statement by Perry of moving forward into the next stage of her life after the tumultuous end of her marriage to Russell Brand. The song has hit #1 in 15 countries and entered the Top 10 in 38 charts worldwide. The titular "roar" appears 16 times in the song, cleverly emphasized at the end of chorus lines (and even beginning one) to squeeze out every last bit of its sing-a-long credentials. This makes the title almost a mantra for those who are listening for the empowerment themes. The song sold 557,024 downloads during its first week of release, giving Perry the biggest Digital Song sales week of her career to date. This won both Favorite Song and Favorite Music Video at the 2014 People's Choice Awards.
