Katy Perry Poll: What's Your Favorite 'Teenage Dream' Single?
With "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" hitting No. 1 on the Hot 100 this week, Katy Perry has notched five chart-toppers from her sophomore album, "Teenage Dream." The feat makes Perry the first female artist with five No. 1s from a single album and ties the record Michael Jackson set with "Bad" in 1987-88.
"Friday" may be Perry's latest hit single and the one to push her into the history books, but is it the best single off "Teenage Dream"? So far, "California Gurls" has had the longest run at the top of the Hot 100, notching six weeks at the perch beginning in June 2010. The bubblegum pop track featured a laid-back Snoop Dogg verse and was highlighted by a Candyland-themed music video.
"Teenage Dream's" title track, an emotional ode to tender teenage romance, soon followed and topped the Hot 100 for two weeks. The music video dialed down "California Gurl's" candy-coated wonder and showed Perry making out with a guy who was decidedly not named Russell Brand.
"Firework" brought Perry's pop reign into the winter, shining atop the Hot 100 for a total of four weeks beginning in December. The Stargate-produced dance track was performed at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, as well as on Oprah Winfrey's post-Oscars show with the Staten Island PS22 Children's Choir.
And Perry kept it going this spring with "E.T.," her otherworldly love song that featured a guest spot from Kanye West. After its five-week stay in the Hot 100 penthouse began in April, "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" returns Perry to the top in its 12th week on the chart.
