Katy Perry Did It On Gaga, “E.T” Snatches #1 Slot!!!

Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” becomes the first album in more than six years to yield four No. 1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100, as “E.T.,” featuring Kanye West, rises 2-1 with Airplay Gainer honors.

The space-age love song follows “California Gurls,” featuring Snoop Dogg, the title cut and “Firework” to the chart’s summit, making Perry’s second Capitol Records album the first to yield a quartet of Hot 100 No. 1s since Usher’s “Confessions” in 2004.

“Teenage Dream” is just the ninth album to produce four No. 1s in the Hot 100’s 52-year history. It’s the first by a solo female since Mariah Carey‘s eponymous debut set in 1990-91.

“I am so thrilled that ‘E.T.’ has landed at No. 1,” Perry tells Billboard.com. “I want to thank all the fans who contributed to this amazing feat and radio, which has been an essential part of my continued existence. I truly appreciate all the support of my creative twists and turns.”

“Can’t wait to share the video with you tomorrow,” Perry adds, teasing the premiere of the “E.T.” clip at noon ET tomorrow on MTV.com and VEVO.

I got my wires crossed over here earlier but it’s all good now. (Thanx Anthony) Rihanna actually sits at #2 behind her bestie and Gaga’s slipped all the way to #4 behind Cee’Lo’s “F*** U”!

I’m very impressed with these Katy #s!!! It’s been 21 years since a female has accomplished this. Damn, these young girls are coming for Mariah’s records!
