Katy Perry’s ‘Teenage Dream’ Yields Sixth Hot 100 Top 10
autor: | November 27th, 2011 | add comment | 'Teenage Dream' ERA ,Charts

Up 15-10, ‘The One That Got Away’ makes the album just the seventh ever to generate that many top 10 hits.

Katy Perry squeezes in yet another impressive achievement for which to be thankful this year.

Her “Teenage Dream” album becomes just the seventh album in the 53-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to generate at least six top 10s, as “The One That Got Away” leaps 15-10.

The song joins the set’s first five singles, all of which reached No. 1: “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg; the title cut, “Firework”; “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West; and, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)”

A more mammoth milestone could still lie ahead for Perry: with one more No.1 from the set, “Teenage Dream” would pass Michael Jackson’s “Bad” to become the first album to generate six Hot 100 No. 1s.

Now in its 65th week on the Billboard 200, “Teenage Dream” has sold 1.9 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Upon Perry’s latest feat, here is a look at the select seven albums, by five artists, to spawn as many as six Hot 100 top 10s, an achievement last managed by Janet Jackson’s “janet.” in 1993-94:

Katy Perry remains atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week with “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” her historic fifth No. 1 from her album “Teenage Dream,” while Lil Wayne leaps onto the survey at No. 3 with the latest single from his forthcoming album “Tha Carter IV.”

“Friday” registers a second week at the Hot 100′s apex despite dips in airplay and sales. The song slips 1-2 on Radio Songs with 140 million all-format audience impressions (down 6%), according to Nielsen BDS. It holds at No. 4 on Digital Songs with 154,000 downloads sold (down 1%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.

With the song’s ascension to No. 1 last week, Perry became the first woman, and second artist overall, following Michael Jackson (“Bad,” 1987-88), in the Hot 100′s 53-year history to send five songs from an album to the top spot.

“Friday” holds off LMFAO’s former six-week Hot 100 No. 1 “Party Rock Anthem,” featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, which remains at No. 2. Rebounding 2-1 on Radio Songs (141 million, down 1%) for a second frame in charge, “Anthem” is the first since Jennifer Lopez’s “I’m Real,” featuring Ja Rule, in October 2001 to drop from and reclaim the Radio Songs chart’s top rank. On Digital Songs, “Anthem” descends 2-5 (148,000, down 8%).

Exclusive: Katy Perry Responds to Making Hot 100 History
autor: | August 18th, 2011 | add comment | Charts ,Interviews ,News

It isn’t every day a recording artist scores their fifth No. 1 single off an album, and with “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” Katy Perry knows she’s made a “small piece of history.” In an exclusive statement to Billboard, Perry stands in awe of her fans for helping her match Michael Jackson’s record and become the first woman to hit this Hot 100 milestone.

Hitting No. 1 is always a great moment, but when it turns into a small piece of history, you’re reminded of how many millions of people are connected to each other by even one tiny event,” she says. “Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen. Ever since I was 9 years old, singing into my hairbrush, I’ve dreamed very big dreams, but today is bigger than my dreams. What a nice first birthday present for ‘Teenage Dream’!

The hit parade that is “Teenage Dream” was released Aug. 24 of last year and “Friday'”s Hot 100 coronation follows No. 1s for “California Gurls,” the title track, “Firework” and “E.T.”

Only Michael Jackson’s “Bad” produced as many chart leaders, putting Perry into royal company in the annals of the 53-year-old Hot 100 chart.

Katy Perry Laughs Last: ‘Teenage Dream’ and Its Singles Rack Up Huge Sales
autor: | August 18th, 2011 | add comment | 'Teenage Dream' ERA ,Articles ,Charts ,News

Almost a year ago, Billboard published a story analyzing whether or not Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” album had met its first-week sales expectations. In the weeks leading up to the album’s release, Perry seemed omnipresent, and industry SoundScan prognisticators were projecting first week sales of 300,000 units to 700,000 units. EMI had shipped a million units in anticipation of a big first week and they weren’t alone in their optimism.

But when the album only scanned 192,000 units in the debut week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, the entire industry, not just EMI, was shocked.

That story ended on this note: “Mark my words: I will bet you ‘Teenage Dream’ will sell more than [Perry's debut, 'One of the Boys']. ‘Teenage Dream’ will be one of those ‘at the end of the day’ records,” a senior label exec said.

As it turns out, “Teenage Dreams is indeed one of those “at the end of the day” records. For the week ending Aug. 14, the album has scanned a few units shy of 1.7 million units, as compared to her first Capitol album “One Of The Boys,” which has scanned 1.4 million units.

But album sales aren’t the only story going on here. As Capitol Records has proclaimed: “Katy Perry ties with Michael Jackson to become the second artist in the 53-year-history of the Hot 100 chart to produce five No. 1 singles off the same album,” in this case “Teenage Dream.”

Those five singles areCalifornia Gurls,” which in all of its versions has scanned 4.92 million units; “Firework,” which has scanned 4.8 million units. “E.T.,” in all of its versions, has scanned nearly 4.6 million units; “Teenage Dream,” which in all of its versions has scanned 3.9 million units and “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” which has scanned 2 million units.

Those five songs ombined have scanned nearly 20.2 million units and all the tracks on the album have scanned 20.9 million units. If you convert those track scans to track-equivalent albums, that comes out to another 2.09 million units. That means that “Teenage Dream” has scanned a whopping 3.8 million albums and track equivalents.

Now, the only question remains, will Capitol be tempted to release “Peacock” as the next single in an attempt to reach six Hot 100 No. 1 singles. That track has the best sales of the remaining songs on the album, having scanned 388,000 units to date.

Katy Perry Makes Hot 100 History: Ties Michael Jackson’s Record
autor: | August 17th, 2011 | add comment | 'Teenage Dream' ERA ,Charts ,News

Katy Perry becomes the first woman, and second artist overall following Michael Jackson, in the 53-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to send five songs from an album to No. 1, as “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” becomes the fifth chart leader from her Capitol Records set “Teenage Dream.”

The historic Hot 100 coronation follows the album’s prior No. 1sCalifornia Gurls” (featuring Snoop Dogg), the lead single from “Teenage Dream,”; the title cut; “Firework“; and, “E.T.” (featuring Kanye West). The set bowed atop the Billboard 200 album chart dated Sept. 11, 2010, and has sold 1.7 million copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

While Perry is the first woman to achieve the honor, she is the second artist to manage the feat after Jackson. The late King of Pop sent five songs to No. 1 on the Hot 100 from “Bad” in 1987-88: “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You” (with Siedah Garrett); the title track; “The Way You Make Me Feel”; “Man in the Mirror”; and, “Dirty Diana.”

Jackson notched his quintet of No. 1s from “Bad” over nine months and two weeks. Perry’s five toppers from “Dream” spans one year, two months and one week, dating to the first week at No. 1 for “Gurls” on the Hot 100 dated June 19, 2010. (The newest Hot 100 is dated Aug. 27, 2011).

While Jackson earned the achievement more quickly, Perry has spent more time atop the Hot 100 in each artist’s respective commanding stretch: Jackson’s five No. 1s from “Bad” totaled a combined seven weeks in charge. With the first week on top for “Friday,” Perry is up to 18 total weeks at No. 1 with her No. 1s from “Dream.”

Following “Gurls,” which reigned atop the Hot 100 for six weeks, the title song from “Dream” began a two-week command on the chart dated Sept. 18, 2010. “Firework” spent four weeks at No. 1 beginning Dec. 18, 2010, and “E.T.” landed at the apex for five weeks starting April 9, 2011.

Katy Perry Notches Record Fifth No. 1 From ‘Teenage Dream’ On Pop Songs
autor: | August 1st, 2011 | add comment | Charts ,News

Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” becomes the first album in the almost 19-year history of Billboard’s Pop Songs chart to generate five No. 1s, as “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” ascends 2-1.

The song follows “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, the title cut, “Firework” and “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West, to the top of the Nielsen BDS-based mainstream top 40 radio airplay ranking.

“Dream” pushes past two albums that each yielded four Pop Songs leaders: Justin Timberlake’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds” (2006-07) and Lady Gaga’s “The Fame” (2009).

Piggybacking one record on top of another, “Friday” sets the mark for most weekly plays in the chart’s history (12,468; or, an average of 92 plays per station among the 136 Pop Songs reporters [the chart's entire reporter panel] playing the song). The previous record-holder? Perry’s own “E.T.” (12,361 the week of May 21, 2011).

Further evidence of the unprecedented domination that “Dream” has demonstrated at pop radio? The five singles from the album account for five of the top six titles with the chart’s highest-ever weekly spin totals:

Katy Perry nears Michael Jackson No. 1s record
autor: | June 25th, 2011 | add comment | 'Teenage Dream' ERA ,Charts

To say that Katy Perry has been on a roll lately would be a grand understatement. But now, the star is nearing a feat only previously achieved by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

On the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, Perry’s latest single from her “Teenage Dream” album, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.),” flies 31-4. As Gary Trust notes in today’s Chart Beat column, if it hits No. 1 on the Hot 100, Perry will become just the second act — and first woman — to score five No. 1s from one album in the chart’ 52-year history, as “California Gurls,” the title cut, “Firework” and “E.T.” all previously reigned. Only Michael Jackson, with his 1987 set “Bad,” has so far collected five Hot 100 No. 1s from one album release.

In other impressive and unprecedented Perry chart news, she was already the only artist with four 4-million-selling downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. As of this week, Perry pulls further ahead of the pack as the only artist with a whopping five.

“E.T.,” which topped the Hot 100 for five weeks beginning April 9, surpasses the 4-million mark in download sales, according to SoundScan (4.06 million). Perry is now the only act to have five songs sell more than 4-million each. (Lady Gaga is next with three 4-million-sellers).

She previously hit the 4-million mark with “Hot N Cold” (4.91 million), “Firework” (4.53 million), “I Kissed a Girl” (4.07 million) and “California Gurls” (4.88 million).

More evidence of Perry’s power? Adding to the pileup of her staggering sales and chart statistics, “E.T.” became the top-selling download of 2011 as of the week ending May 1, when it overtook Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You (F**k You).”
