Katy Perry’s ‘Last Friday Night’ Reaches Number One, Ties Michael Jackson’s Record
Katy Perry also owns a piece of that crown, now that her latest single, ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),’ has crested the charts. It follows the first four number one hits from Perry’s latest album, ‘Teenage Dream’: ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Firework,’ ‘E.T.,’ and the title track.
‘Last Friday Night’s’ ascendance comes after a stint at number two, where the song was stuck behind LMFAO‘s ‘Party Rock Anthem’ — until it got a little extra help from Perry’s label, thanks to a price cut at Amazon and iTunes. The result? A 14 percent sales increase and a share of pop history.
So congratulations, Katy Perry! Now, how about that sixth single?
