U.S. Chart Roundup: Katy Perry Is Only Fifth Artist To Land Six Top 10 Singles Off One Album

With Katy Perry's "The One That Got Away" moving into the Top 10 this week (at #10), she joins the ranks of Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, George Michael and Janet Jackson as artists who've had at least six Top 10 hits on the Hot 100 from one album. Thus, she becomes only one of two females to pull off the feat, and she's the first artist to do so since Janet Jackson's 1993 album janet. produced six Top 10s.

And while she's the fifth to pull off the chart trick, Katy's Teenage Dream is now the seventh album to produce six Top 10 singles (Michael and Janet had two each). The full breakdown album is as follows:

1. Michael Jackson, Thriller (released in 1982, seven Top 10 singles)
2. Bruce Springsteen, Born In The USA (1984, seven)
3. Michael Jackson, Bad (1987, six)
4. George Michael, Faith (1987, six)
5. Janet Jackson, Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989, seven)
6. Janet Jackson, janet. (1993, six)
7. Katy Perry, Teenage Dream (2010, six)

You can catch all the respective singles listed here. Looking at the list above, it really makes you realize that, damn, Michael and Janet had it good back in the days when labels had enough cash for payola, no?

Alright, it's Turkey Day, so have a Happy Thanksgiving!
