We know Michael Jackson is the King of Pop, but his legacy on the charts can soon be touched by, what most male adolescents define as, the modern “teenage dream.”
If au American pop diva Katy Perry keeps up the hard work, she’ll be celebrating with more than just fireworks. Though Michael Jackson is the only artist to ever have five number one Billboard Hot 100 hits from one album, that can all change soon as Katy is well on her way to the same position.
If Katy’s latest Teenage Dream single, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” hits the number one slot, this will be the first time any female accomplished this reign on the charts in 52-year history. Chances for the latest single hitting the top spot are very high. The single, which jumped 27-spots in a week, currently sits at number four.
If “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” joins the top hits gang, it will be amongst Katy’s previous top Teenage Dream singles, “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg, “Teenage Dream,” “Firework” and “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West.
Jackson’s five number ones from the Bad album are “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror” and “Dirty Diana.” —Shabazz
