Never count out the power of a hastily thrown together remix.
Thanks in part to the added sales power behind Katy Perry‘s “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” remix, featuring Missy Elliott (and an uber-desirable price cut on all versions of the song to 69 cent last week), the track has hit No. 1 and the perky pop star has tied Michael Jackson‘s record for an album producing the most No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, Billboard reports.
Perry’s sophomore set, Teenage Dream, has now produced five chart-toppers. Including “Last Friday Night,” they are “California Gurls” featuring Snoop Dogg, the title-track, “Firework,” and “E.T.” featuring Kanye West.
MJ’s set the record with Bad. The No. 1′s from that album are its title-track, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the Mirror,” and “Dirty Diana.”
The accomplishment is even sweeter for Perry as she’s the first woman ever to achieve the feat.
Now that’s something to party about!
