Back in January, the special edition of Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream’ was confirmed for a March release, in a bid to further capitalize on the LP’s success on a singles front.
However, in what will be sure to put a spanner in Perry’s works, Billboard have announced that any #1 singles released by the new LP will not count towards the record she currently holds with Michael Jackson,for having the most #1 singles released from the same album.
Perry and Jackson will remain tied for the most Hot 100 toppers from any album regardless of the performance of any singles from Confection. Should any song released from Confection reach No. 1, it would count as a Hot 100 No. 1 from Confection and not Dream.
This means that the only way Perry can beat Michael’s record is if a cut already on ‘Dream’ goes to #1, which makes no sense to us- especially if sales from ‘Confection‘ are going to be added to the sales of ‘Dream’.
But what do you think?
