Michael Jackson’s No. 1 Record Tied by Katy Perry

The late king of Pop Michael Jackson’s record of five number one singles including “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror” and “Dirty Diana” from the classic album ‘Bad’ was left in the history books in a category by himself. For over fifty years Michael Jackson was the only to have five consecutive number ones off a single album until Katy Perry recently hit the same milestone.

The Pop sensation’s sophomore album spawn several hits – “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” and “Last Friday Night.”

“So proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song ‘LAST FRIDAY NIGHT’ is officially #1 & made HISTORY!” Perry stated on Twitter.

Now that Katy Perry has joined Michael Jackson in the history books, is there a chance another talent will join them?
