Amarillo, Texas -
Katy Perry's fourth studio album, "Prism," is a follow-up to her massive hit from 2010, Teenage Dream. She's the only woman, and the second artist after Michael Jackson to send five singles from on album to number one on Billboard's Hot 100. Needless to say Perry's stiffest competition might just be herself. This one probably doesn't have five number ones but it does have some successes. This is her first album since divorcing comedian Russell Brand. It's darker, more thoughtful and, perhaps, meant to show her more adult-artist side.
Il Volo will usher in the holiday season with the release of "Buon Natale" The Christmas album. In this new set the group takes on American Christmas classics including "Rocking Around the Christmas Tree" and "I'll be Home for Christmas," The Christmas Song," "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," "O Holy Night" and a special holiday medley.
