Katy Perry seemingly has been everywhere promoting her new album PRISM , and all her hard work appears to be paying off: the disc is heading for a #1 debut on next week's Billboard chart.

Industry sources tell Billboard that the disc, Katy's third, is on track to sell about 275,000 copies in its first week.  If that happens, she'll post the biggest sales week for a woman so far in 2013.  Miley Cyrus currently holds that title; her album Bangerz arrived at #1 a week ago with sales of 270,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Katy's last album, Teenage Dream , debuted at #1 with sales of 192,000 copies in its first week.  It produced five #1 singles, and went on to sell 2.8 million copies in the U.S.

Thanking her fans for all their support this week, Katy tweeted , "Thanks for an INCREDIBLE release everyone! I hope the colors on this record r bursting through ur earbuds like lil dancing rainbows!"
