Katy Perry makes Hot 100 history: ties Michael Jackson’s record

| On 18, Aug 2011

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.


Read the entire Billboard story here:


The achievement follows shortly after Katy’s 2010 sophomore album Teenage Dream became the first album in the nearly 19-year history of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart to generate five No. 1 singles. Katy has dominated at Pop radio over the past year, with “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” accounting for five of the top six titles with the chart’s highest ever weekly spin totals. “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” bests “E.T.” to become the song with the most weekly plays in the chart’s history.


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.).”
