Katy Perry - an entire year on the Billboard Hot 100 top ten

Despite being knocked off the top spot by Adele's Rolling in the Deep, Katy Perry has no reason to circle the drain because she's just become the first artist in Billboard history to stay within the top 10 for A WHOLE YEAR!

It's quite a handful to explain so here's the press release describing how Katy has made the top 10 her second home.
Perry began her streak when "California Gurls," featuring Snoop Dogg, debuted at No. 2 on the May 29, 2010, Hot 100. The song would go on to spend six weeks at No. 1 beginning June 19, 2010.

As "Girls" logged its 12th frame in the top 10 on the Aug. 14, 2010, Hot 100, the follow-up and second single from Perry's second Capitol Records album "Teenage Dream" bounded 20-7. The song would become the set's second No. 1 on the Sept. 18 chart and reign for two weeks.

On the Nov. 20, 2010, Hot 100, "Firework" burst 29-10, just keeping Perry in the top 10, as "Dream" dropped out of the tier (12-8). "Firework" started a four-week command on the Jan. 8, 2011, survey.

When "E.T." bounded 28-8 on the March 12, 2011, Hot 100, the song joined "Firework" for the latter song's last two weeks in the top 10.

Prior to Perry, Ace of Base had held the Hot 100's uninterrupted top 10 longevity mark, linking 48 straight weeks in the top 10 with "All That She Wants," "The Sign" and "Don't Turn Around" (Oct. 16, 1993-Sept. 10, 1994). Santana ranks third with 42 consecutive frames in the upper region (1999-2000), followed by Mariah Carey (41 weeks in a row, 1995-96).
It's no question that Mrs. Russell Brand has gone far from her Ur So Gay days, but her lastest LP Teenage Dream has spurred four #1's and California Gurls broke digital sales records.

So, in celebration of Katy Perry's success, here's her debut I Kissed A Girl (keep an eye for Ke$ha!) and her latest collaboration with Kanye West, E.T.!

One Response so far.
