Katy Perry’s Record Setting ‘Dream’

Published: Tuesday 30th Aug 2011 by Rashad

At the rate chart titan Katy Perry is going the Billboard Awards 2012 will be renamed ‘Katy Perry night’.  For, as if her record-setting  5 #1s from one album wasn’t enough (record set for female, tie overall), the singer’s ‘Teenage Dream’ has added two other Billboard accolades to its growing list of achievements.

Via Billboard:

“Another record-setting chart achievement for Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream’.

The album becomes the first set in the 15-year history of Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs chart to generate four No. 1s, as “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” ascends 2-1. The five radio singles from “Dream” have likewise topped Billboard’s Pop Songs chart, making the album the only release to propel five songs to No. 1 on the BDS-based mainstream top 40 airplay tally, dating to the chart’s 1992 launch.”

Dubbed by many as a one-hit wonder from her ‘I Kissed a Girl’ debut, no one would’ve expected the ‘Hot N’ Cold’ singer’s career to turn up the heat on the charts as it has.  And with Katy, Adele, Gaga, Beyonce, and Britney all shoo-ins for the upcoming awards season, maybe the girls really do run this motha-.

    AS A BEYONCE FAN I WILL CONGRADULATE KATY PERRY ON HER SUCCESS! THAT IS A HUGE HONOR! EVEN THOUGH I’M NOT A FAN I STILL GIVE RESPECT WHEN RESPECT IS DUE. I WILL NOT CALL HER A “W****” OR “B****” OR ANY OF THAT. BECAUSE THATS WHAT HATERS DO, ALSO KNOWN AS RIHANNA STANS.

    AGAIN CONGRATS KATY, I WISH YOU THE SAME SUCCESS ON THE NEXT PROJECT!

    Very well said, i like Katy Perry she is refreshing and she is beautiful. Her album is almost 2x platinum, and she has had 5 huge #1 singles. She is doing her dayum thing. I’m glad for her. She deserves it. Her tour is doing incredibly well, and she has carved out her own lane. She’s managed to be Pop while not riding the electro/dance wave. Good for her. Well deserved. Oh and her album is very nice. She seems like alot of fun.

    @TYLER
    Thanks you

    *congrats katy*

  7. black cat August 30, 2011

    Wow, Katy Perry is making HIStory isn’t she?
    Makes me wonder whether she could be the Michael Jackson of this era record-breaking-wise…

  8. KAT DELUNA FAN August 30, 2011

    GEEZ Nobody want “JNO’ generic album made by her oldd thiefa latina

    what happened to the smmash hit “ON THE FLOUR” 😆 😆

  9. MissImpartial August 30, 2011

    Does not matter it is still horrible music. If it was quality music I would say congrats but that Last Friday Night song is one of the worst songs that I have ever heard. The only good song that she has released is Teenage Dream.

  10. butterfly August 30, 2011

    LOL @ Katy Perry’s haters now domesticated because Beyonce is taking a break, loool i can’t
    Katy Perry has always slayed and shall continue, U WILL DEAL

  11. D.Strock August 30, 2011

    Personally I think she’s overrated. Just my opinion though opinion though.

    The article does bring up a really good point though. Like where are all of our male pop artists? I mean who do we have, Bruno Mars and Chris Brown?

  12. jloration August 30, 2011

    @ TYLER, JENERATION, THEMAN, BLACK CAT Ditto and I agree

    @JENERATION Finnally the signature is working !! 😀
    i’ll be right with you you-know-where (haters might spoil our conversation there)

    To the Kat: You’re trying really hard aren’t you? Looooool
    “On The Floor” did amazingly to your dismay (I know, sorry about that)
    For your own sake you need to think about a name change, you barely support that artist. Please, do it at least for her sake.
    Next

    Yolando Sangweni of Essence Magazine stated that…..the fact that Knowles goes through four key changes is “quite a feat for any singer. YESSSSSSS! BEYONCE owns next years Female Vocal performance n the R&B catagory! LOT is getting ready to SLAY!
    Some music critics are comparing LOT to Diana, Stevie, Aretha and Anita early work…..saying shes bringing bac that 80′s soul singing.

    GURLLL wat did i tell….*IGNORE*…dont let her stress you out

  29. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. August 30, 2011

    What a JOKE. She did a last minute remix & sold her shitty single for .69c in order to get a #1 single…the actions of a true BASIC B**** 😉

    the h** is DESPERATE & will not be relevant in 2 years…TOPS! She’s a gimmick & her music is pure GARBAGE with no meaning.

    & Who cares about setting a record on the insignificant POP charts?

    LACEFRONCE has spoken.

  30. > August 30, 2011

  36. aisha aguilera keys August 31, 2011

    I must admit, I like KP’s songs, but she has a horrible voice, she can’t sing AT ALL, damn, didn’t think it was possible but even Riri sings better than her, yet Sam constantly attacks Riri while he’s indulgent w/ KP. Otherwise congrats on that feat.

    Katy you deserve all your success and so much more to come congrats. See you in concert. You are making history. Love Katy – so refreshing, relatable, and innovative.

  44. Justin September 1, 2011

    Anybody who’s been following Katy and Rihanna will be able to tell you Katy sings a lot better love. Sure she has her off moments but when she’s on, she really does sing well. Rihanna however rarely sounds good, and her sings are by far much easier to sing than Katy Perry. Teenage Dream and Firework are pretty hard songs with a lot of high notes all over the place, yet she manages to give some good performances. Rihanna is just disappointing.
