Chances are, you heard Katy Pery's "E.T." sometime on the radio last week. No, seriously. The alien love song was spun 12,3330 times on the radio last week! It's the fourth single from Perry's Teenage Dream and those 12,000+ plays mark the highest number of plays in a single week in the history of the Nielsen BDS mainstream Top 40 survey.
Recently, Perry surpassed her own record, set with "California Gurls" featuring Snoop Dogg, which recorded 12,159 in July of 2010, and she currently holds the top four spots on the Pop Songs play sums chart with her first four singles off of her sophomore full-length, released last year on Capitol Records. "E.T." holds the top spot followed by "California Gurls," "Firework" and "Teenage Dream." With the success of "E.T.," Perry is also the first female artist in over 20 years to score four No. 1 singles from the same album on Billboard's Hot 100 as Teenage Dream stands as only the ninth album to log at least four No. 1s since the chart's launch the week of August 4th, 1958. The singer's next single from Teenage Dream will be "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)".
Perry appears on the cover of the June issue of Vanity Fair, shot by Annie Leibovitz in Paris earlier this year. She has been touring internationally since early 2011, making stops across Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, and will kick-off an extensive 60-city North American run on June 7th touring through mid-September.
All this info proves one point: it's good to be Katy Perry.
