Katy Perry Closing In On Michael Jackson Chart Record
Katy Perry is close to matching a chart record by Michael Jackson. Her latest single “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)” is at #4. If it reaches #1, according to Yahoo! Chart Watch, it will the fifth #1 hit from Katy’s album Teenage Dream. The only other album in history to produce five number-one hits was Michael’s 1987 release Bad. Those ‘chart-toppers’ were “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror” and “Dirty Diana’ (loved that last one)
Also in the win column, is Katy song with Kanye, “E.T.” It reached the four-million-downloads mark this week, for the fifth time! No other artist has ever had that many songs reach the four million sales mark. Lady Gaga and Rihanna are pretty far behind they each have had three songs that sold four million copies.
