In Ireland, meanwhile, yesterday Perry was on 28,522 streams for her three tracks in the Top 200 (Swish Swish, Bon Appetit and Chained to the Rhythm), while Swift was on 21,174 for her eight songs.
Katy Perry has reacted to Taylor Swift's decision to release her music back catalogue on streaming services on the same day she unveiled her new album "Witness", admitting she doesn't know if it was a deliberate move to derail her LP.
Instead of singing the line "Don't you come for me", in the first verse, Perry sang, "God bless you on your journey, oh baby girl".
Katy Perry is continuing in her campaign to end her feud with Taylor Swift, or at least look like the bigger person while Swift refuses to back down. "Maybe I don't agree with everything she does, and maybe she doesn't agree with everything I do, but like, I really, truly, want to come together, and in a place of love and forgiveness, and understanding and compassion", Perry said.
"And even in, you know, my intention to appreciate Japanese culture, I did it wrong with a performance", she said, referring to her 2013 American Music Awards performance of "Unconditionally", where she dressed as a geisha.
"I love her and I want the best for her, and I think she's a fantastic songwriter", Perry continued.
"I haven't done it for a long time and I'm not going to show everyone now", she said.
While Witness is expected to make it to No.1 in the album charts, Swift's music catalogue is now out-performing Perry's album on Spotify. "I think Diplo is third because I think there's a reason people become DJs".
But Katy Perry seems to have learned that, as much as the feud may have kept her name in the headlines, it's not a narrative that's helping her-or anyone-for the time being. After the many false starts and pitfalls that the artist has encountered in recent months, Perry appears to finally be in control of her own narrative.
In the live-stream, Perry speaks about the friends, or "empowered angels" as she calls them, who hold her accountable and continually help her to broaden her understanding of the world. Even when I said that I wasn't a feminist because I didn't know what that word meant.
