Katy Perry's 'Teenage Dream' Yields Sixth Hot 100 Top 10

Up 15-10, 'The One That Got Away' makes the album just the seventh ever to generate that many top 10 hits.

Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" album becomes just the seventh album in the 53-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to generate at least six top 10s, as "The One That Got Away" leaps 15-10.

Upon Perry's latest feat, here is continued a look at the select seven albums, by five artists, to spawn as many as six Hot 100 top 10s, an achievement last managed by Janet Jackson's "janet." in 1993-94:

"Faith," George Michael, 1987-88
Six: "I Want Your Sex" (No. 2) (first released on the "Beverly Hills Cop II" soundtrack), "Faith" (No. 1, four weeks), "Father Figure" (No. 1, two weeks), "One More Try" (No. 1, three weeks), "Monkey" (No. 1, two weeks), "Kissing a Fool" (No. 5)

"Bad," Michael Jackson, 1987-89
Six: "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," with Siedah Garrett (No. 1, one week), "Bad" (No. 1, two weeks), "The Way You Make Me Feel" (No. 1, one week), "Man in the Mirror" (No. 1, two weeks), "Dirty Diana" (No. 1, one week), "Smooth Criminal" (No. 7). (Following the coronation of the set's first five singles, "Another Part of Me" frustratingly stopped at No. 11 before "Criminal" broke into and entered the top 10).

"janet.," Janet Jackson, 1993-94
Six: "That's the Way Love Goes" (No. 1, eight weeks), "If" (No. 4), "Again" (No. 1, two weeks), "Because of Love" (No. 10), "Any Time, Any Place"/"And On and On" (No. 2), "You Want This"/"70's Love Groove" (No. 8)

"Teenage Dream," Katy Perry, 2010-11
Six: "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg (No. 1, six weeks), "Teenage Dream" (No. 1, two weeks), "Firework" (No. 1, four weeks), "E.T.," featuring Kanye West (No. 1, five weeks), "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" (No. 1, two weeks), "The One That Got Away" (No. 10, to-date)
