Listen to Mashup of Katy Perry’s No. 1 Hits in Tommie Sunshine’s Megasix
Katy Perry‘s special edition release ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ hits stores today, and one of the new coolest tracks for Perry fans might be ‘Tommie Sunshine’s Megasix Smash-Up,’ a seven-minute remix that blends all six of her ‘Teenage Dream’ singles — five of which reached No. 1 — into a single track.
Sunshine wastes no time mixing things up, as the first 20 seconds of the remix incorporates spliced-up vocals from four of the six chart-topping songs. The mix finally settles into a full minute of ‘Teenage Dream,’ followed by the first verse and chorus from ‘California Gurls.’
Next up is ‘The One That Got Away,’ which lived up to its name as the only one of the six singles that failed to hit No. 1, and then a short clip from ‘T.G.I.F. (Last Friday Night).’ ‘E.T.’ comes next and is the most heavily-edited song in the mashup, with its vocals presented in a much slower tempo than on the original recording. Finally, the last minute is devoted to ‘Firework’ and fades out on the line, “Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon.”
Perry achieved a two-year run of hit singles that was almost unmatched in pop music history, and this seven-minute track captures it perfectly. ‘Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection’ features new versions of many of these hits, including an acoustic ‘The One That Got Away’ and a Missy Elliott collaboration.
