It's official. Katy Perry has become the first female artist--and only the second artist besides Michael Jackson--to score five No. 1 singles from the same album (Teenage Dream) on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
With her current single “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” ascending to No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart this week, global pop superstar Katy Perry ties with Michael Jackson to become the second artist in the 53-year-history of the Hot 100 chart to produce five No. 1 singles off the same album. Katy is the first female, and only living artist to accomplish this feat.
In addition, on August 1st, Katy became the second artist in modern-day BDS chart monitoring to notch six consecutive No. 1 singles: “Waking Up in Vegas,” (from 2009’s One of the Boys), “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.).”
Perry is currently in the middle of her sold-out "California Dreams" tour. Congratulations, Katy!
