SIX-CESS: Another title with an acronym makes an historic trip to No. 1 on Dance/Club Play Songs.
Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" rises 2-1 on the tally to become the sixth leading song from her album "Teenage Dream."
Here is a recap of Perry's six-pack of No. 1s from the set:
"California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, Aug. 21, 2010
"Teenage Dream," Oct. 16, 2010
"Peacock," Dec. 4, 2010
"Firework," Jan. 22, 2011
"E.T.," April 23, 2011
"Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)," July 16, 2011
"Teenage Dream" is just the third album to yield six No. 1 singles since Dance/Club Play Songs launched as a national survey the week of Aug. 21, 1976. Beyonce's "I Am...Sasha Fierce" was the first such set (2009-10) and Kristine W's "The Power of Music" became the second only four weeks ago, when "Fade" reached the summit. The song followed "The Boss" (2008), "Never," "Love Is the Look," "Be Alright" (2009) and the title cut (2010) to the top spot.
("Power" also includes Tony Moran's 2007 No. 1 "Walk Away," on which Kristine W guests).
BUZZIN': His profile enhanced by his role as coach on NBC's "The Voice," Blake Shelton logs a fourth week atop Country Songs with "Honey Bee."
Shelton could brag that "Bee" is the first song in a year and two weeks to link as many as four frames atop the list, but one person that he might have trouble impressing would be his wife, Miranda Lambert. The last song to accomplish the feat? Her "The House That Built Me."
No title has spent more time atop Country Songs since Lady Antebellum's "Need You Now" led for five weeks beginning Nov. 28, 2009.
ARITHMANCY: Can't wait until next Friday's (July 15) U.S. premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," the final edition of the "Harry Potter" blockbuster film series?
New at No. 25 on Comedy Digital Tracks, Meekakitty's "Wizard Love," featuring Heyhihello, might tide you over.
(Meekakitty is the recording name of Oregon native Tessa Violet, while Heyhihello is the guise of Ohioan Jakub Andrew).
Another Potter is currently charting. Kenny Chesney and featured artist Grace Potter bullet at No. 11 for a second week on Country Songs with "You and Tequila." (Not butterbeer).
