Lady Gaga's Applause VS Katy Perry's Roar - Which Is Best?

POP EMERGENCY! After numerous leaks and cries of outrage from the hardcore fans, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have both rush-released their highly anticipated new singles. Do they live up to the hype? And which is best? Listen to both songs now after the jump.
Co-produced by Lady Gaga and DJ White Shadow, Applause is the lead single from the singers forthcoming ARTPOP album and to be honest, it seems to be a bit of a grower. While Applause may not immediately strike listeners in the same way that Bad Romance did, I personally think that the song has the potential to surpass Born This Way given some repeated listens. I love the sound of her voice on the track but Gaga needs this to be a smash after the lukewarm reception she received for her previous album. Is it inventive enough? Give us another Telephone goddammit!

Katy Perry has a lot to live up to following the ridiculous success of the Teenage Dream album so what do you do? Call Max Martin! New song Roar has a fantastic pop chorus that just hits you instantly and while it may not represent much of an evolution in the singers sound, its already a guaranteed hit in my eyes. But will the rest of her upcoming Prism album be any good? It's definitely got potential if Roar is anything to go by.

So what did you think? Who has the best comeback single? Whose album excites you most? And are these songs good enough to keep both pop princesses on top? Personally, I can't get enough of Applause, even though Roar is probably the better song but let me know what you think by commenting, liking and sharing below. Also, vote now in our poll to let us know which song is best.
