Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream’ continues to dominate the pop radio airwaves. According to Billboard, the album is the first in the 15-year history of the trade’s Adult Pop Songs chart to produce four No. 1 singles.

Perry’s latest single from the album is ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),’ which follows previous numero unos ‘California Gurls,’ ‘Teenage Dream’ and ‘Firework.’ The only single that didn’t go No. 1 on this chart was ‘E.T.,’ which was lodged at No. 2 for four weeks and was unable to pass Adele‘s ‘Rolling in the Deep.’ It was a catfight on the charts!

Both Daughtry’s self-titled debut and Nickelback’s ‘All the Right Reasons’ produced three No. 1 singles on this chart and now Perry has leapfrogged over them. She is the woman! Hear her roar! (To continue our feline metaphor, which stems from the fact that Perry has released her own fragrance, dubbed Purr.)

Two weeks ago, when ‘Last Friday Night’ topped the Billboard Hot 100, it was Perry’s fifth single to do so. Perry became the first female artist to achieve that accolade in the chart’s 53-year history. She is tied with Michael Jackson‘s ‘Bad,’ which also produced five chart-toppers.

Can Perry pass Jacko by producing a sixth No. 1 from ‘Teenage Dream’? That’s a question for the Capitol Records/EMI promotion staff, which is responsible for pushing Perry’s albums to program directors and onto the airwaves.
