There were five singles released from Prism. What are your thoughts on them and how would you rank them?

QUOTE
Roar was serviced to mainstream radio stations on August 10, 2013 as the album's lead single, and its digital release followed two days later. It received mixed-to-positive commentary from music critics, who commended its "easy" and "poppy" beat, while some were ambivalent towards its clichéd lyrics. Commercially, it was a success, topping the Billboard Hot 100 and charts in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. It became Australia's best performing song of 2013 with 560,000 copies sold by the end of the year and spending 9 weeks atop the nation's charts. The song was nominated for the Song of the Year and the Best Pop Solo Performance awards at the 56th Grammy Awards.

Unconditionally was released as the album's second single on October 16, 2013. It received generally favorable reviews from critics, who praised it for being "soaring" and "effortless". A lyric video for the song was released two days after its debut, and its official music video was released on November 19, 2013. To promote the single, Perry has performed on various occasions, including a geisha-themed performance of it on the American Music Awards of 2013, which attracted negative press, controversy and accusations of cultural appropriation. Unconditionally has peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has charted moderately worldwide, reaching the top 30 in the single charts of Canada and Germany and the Top 10 in Italy.

Dark Horse was released on December 17, 2013 as the album's third official single. It had previously been released as the album's first promotional single exactly three months prior to its single release. The following week, the song leaped to number four due to topping the Hot Digital Songs, selling 243,000 copies. With Dark Horse topping the Hot Digital Songs chart, it became Perry's 10th digital number-one single. The song topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart on January 29, 2014, becoming Perry's 9th number one single in the United States. It was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 57th Grammy Awards.

On April 3, 2014, Birthday was announced as the album's fourth official single. It debuted at number 91 on the Billboard Hot 100 and impacted Top 40/Mainstream radio in the U.S. on April 21, 2014. This single peaked at number 17 in the US, becoming her 15th song to reach the top 20 in the nation.

This Is How We Do served as the fifth official single from the album. A lyric video of the song was released on July 24, 2014, meanwhile the official music video was released a week later. The song was later sent to radio on August 12, 2014. The song debuted at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 9, 2014 and peaked at number 24.

What bothers me so much is Birthday being shafted by that atrocious video, semi-flopping, and then Maroon 5 essentially releasing the same song a year later and getting a massive hit.

With essentially the same video concept (except weddings) but executed much better.

1. Dark Horse
2. Unconditionally
3. Roar
4. This Is How We Do
5. Birthday

Don't think anything could've topped Dark Horse wub.gif Unconditionally and Roar are both fab also, though. Don't go back to This Is How We Do too often and it's not a favourite from the album, but by the time that was released the campaign was pretty much dead anyway.

Never been massively keen on Birthday, and would definitely have released Walking on Air in its place.

Oops at it descending in quality as it goes along. For what it's worth I really enjoy the top 4, This Is How We Do is one of her weaker singles overall though.

All so solid but none of them actually 10/10s, my favourites on the album are Walking On Air and the underrated ballads on the second half of the album which really don’t get enough credit!
