Mariah Carey may stand tall as one of Pop’s highest selling entertainers, but it seems not even she could brave the force that is Katy Perry this year, watching the star pull the rug from beneath her heels with her new single ‘Dark Horse.’
How Perry has become the chart-topping thorn in her side?
Full story below…
As of this week, Perry‘s time atop Billboard’s ‘Pop Songs’ tally now sits at the 46 week mark.
Why this is important? Well, its this milestone that sees her claim the ‘Pop Songs’ throne, with more time spent at #1 on the chart than any other artist in US chart history, snatching the record from Carey- who can boast of 45 weeks spent at the top.
Of the 11 Perry songs to dominate the chart, ‘Horse’ is the eighth to spend at least four weeks at the top, doing so after it surpassed sales of 3.5 million units and its older sister ‘California Gurls’ spent a chart-scorching seven weeks at #1 on the very same tally!
