‘Teenage Dream’ Becomes ‘Glee’s’ Biggest-Selling Debut-Week Song

Nov 19, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Glee’s version of Katy Perry’s "Teenage Dream" debuted at No. 1 in digital track sales this week, a first for the program, and also scored the highest debut-week sales of any "Glee" song to date, reports the Los Angeles Times’ ShowTracker blog. 

The song sold 214,000 tracks in its first week, surpassing the show’s cover of Journey’s "Don’t Stop Believin’ ", which peaked at No. 2 on digital track sales charts with sales of 177,000 copies, according to the piece.

The article notes that the success of "Teenage Dream" is particularly noteworthy given its context in the episode: the song is performed by a gay student and an all boys’ choir, while gay character Kurt looks on in admiration. It also doesn’t feature the singing of any of the show’s core cast characters, it points out.
