Katy Perry’s “The One That Got Away” Will Pass Jackson’s #1 Record

Right now, Katy Perry is tied for the most #1’s off one album with Michael Jackson.  She is the only female artist with 5 number ones and Michael’s record is bound to be hers with her latest single moving up the charts.  This is according to the Billboard charts.

The song is at number 18 on this week’s charts and the video debuted on Friday on Ellen’ show and has had 12 million hits since then.

Basically, sometime between Thanksgiving weekend and Christmas, Katy will surpass Jackson and have 6 number 1’s from one album.

Michael Jackson’s 5 number 1’s were from his “Bad” album and were “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man in the
Mirror” and “Dirty Diana” between 1987 and 1988.

Katy Perry’s 5 numbers so far are “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework”, “E.T.”, and “Last Friday Night” from her Teenage Dream album.

The new video for “The One That Got Away” features what would be an 80-year-old Katy with an enormous forehead.  She is thinking about the one who got away and the ending is not exactly the happiest.

We are sure the MJ fans will not like this and state the charts do not mean anything anymore. The thing is, all of her hits of the past 2 years have had an impact musically and visually.  “The One That Got Away” is not exactly her most spectacular video but with how many hits it is getting and with guest star Diego Luna in it, it is only a matter of time before the song becomes her 6th number 1 from one album and takes Jackson’s record for good.-DocFB

Diagnosis:  More Number One’s by a female artist off of one album including Mariah, Whitney, Madonna, and yes, even Gaga

    Katy Perry embodies Elvis the performer and The Beatles as Songwriter. Katy Perry is the real deal. See her MTV Unplugged. With a little help from her fans.

    It appears you jumped the gun a bit in this prediction. Michael Jackson and Katie Perry are now tied at 5 #1 singles and that is likely to remain the case. It seems that Katie is going to copy the same recent gimmick of mixing up the last album a little with a few new songs to peddle more dreck. It would be nice to see these current artists go back into the studio and create a whole new album for people to enjoy.

    Who cares? Michael was competing with Prince, U2 and Fleetwood Mac. Katy’s competing with Justin Bieber and Britney.

    Like calling Klitchko Heavyweight Champion and saying his name in the same sentence as Muhammad Ali!

    One day, radio (who pushed Katy Perry) and fans (who bought her music) will regret or be embarassed by this. But until then, when Katy becomes cultural significant…wake me!!!
