I started to talk about this last night on the air and on our Facebook page, now I’m going to tell you exactly why, I believe Katy Perry is truly the new Queen Of Pop.
[photogallerylink id=45254 align=left]Ok, here is the reason. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] has notched her 5th #1 song of her “Teenage Dream” album. Nobody has done that in 19 years! The 5 songs that made it to #1 have been California Gurls, Teenage Dream, Firework, E.T., and Last Friday Night (TGIF).
That makes 5 #1 songs off of one album on the Billboard Pop Charts. It also makes Katy’s album the first in the more than 15 year history of Billboard’s Adult Top 40 chart to have that many #1 singles.
Now, Last Friday Night (TGIF) is hanging at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart. If that song makes it to #1, it would be only the 2nd album to mark that milestone since 1987 when [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] did it with, “Bad.”
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Justin Timberlake[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] had held the record at 4 singles making it to #1 off of one album, until Katy Perry came along.
In my opinion, that makes Katy, your new Queen of Pop.
