US Chart Roundup: Katy Perry Racks (And I Mean RACKS) Up Fifth Top 5 Single Off 'Teenage Dream'

Katy Perry's immensely awesome "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" took forever to get a single release, but it's finally here, and it's now her fifth Top 5 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. This week the jam moves up to #4 on the chart, and is just one position above Perry's "E.T." (Billboard points out that she's the first artist in 2011 to place two titles in the top five simultaneously as a lead act.)

Meanwhile, Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" has been #1 for seven weeks, and she can now boast about having the longest stay at the top of the chart so far this year. Just behind her is Lady Gaga, whose "Born This Way" was on top for six weeks. Katy's "E.T." was #1 for five weeks.

It'll be interesting to see if "Last Friday Night" can become Katy Puxxy's fifth #1 in a row. It was the top download on iTunes for the most part of the past week, until Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera's "Moves Like Jagger" was made available Tuesday evening.

The U.S. Top 10:

1. "Rolling In The Deep" - Adele *7 weeks*
2. "Give Me Everything" - Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, AfroJack & Nayer
3. "Party Rock Anthem" - LMFAO feat. Lauren Bennett & GoonRock
4. "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" - Katy Perry
5. "E.T." - Katy Perry feat. Kanye West
6. "The Edge Of Glory" - Lady Gaga
7. "Dirt Road Anthem" - Jason Aldean
8. "Super Bass" - Nicki Minaj
9. "The Lazy Song" - Bruno Mars
10. "The Show Goes On" - Lupe Fiasco

    I'm eager to see how Maroon 5-Pat Butcher performs :) Love the song. Surely some dizzying remixes on their way.

    I weirdly was aggravated by Katy when she originally released the album, but now I'm loving all the singles and the album of course plays like a greatest hits!
