Promptly following up last weekend’s blockbuster Taylor Swift concerts in St. Louis, Katy Perry is coming to town on Saturday for what will surely be one of the biggest concert events of the year.
Even though her music career is relatively young, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm] has already reached the top of the charts more times than most artists ever will. With five number-one hits since her first single in 2008, and three more songs in the top-10, Katy Perry has proved that she is a force to be reckoned with in the pop music world.
Keep reading to see all of Katy Perry’s number-one music videos.
I Kissed a Girl was Katy Perry’s first ever single, and her official debut into the pop music world. The song quickly shot to number-one on just about every major pop music chart worldwide, and Katy hasn’t looked back since.
After I Kissed a Girl, Katy released three straight singles that failed to re-take the number-one spot. She righted this wrong with her 2010 release of California Gurls, the first single off her Teenage Dream album, and the first in a streak of four consecutive singles that would top the US charts.
Teenage Dream was bound to be a tremendous success from the moment Katy Perry first came up with the idea for the song. With its edgy lyrics, youthful exuberance, and undeniably catchy sound, this hit became Katy’s third number-one hit.
The third single from Teenage Dream made no less of an impact on the music world that the previous two. The critics loved Firework more than any other Katy Parry hit, and the music loving public ate it up as well.
The production of the video is no less impressive than the song itself, and and one point fireworks even shoot off of Katy’s… well, you’ll see.
After three enormously successful number-one hits off the same album, it seemed certain that E.T. featuring Kanye West would fall off the pace at least a little. But Katy wasn’t ready to give up her streak of number-ones, and E.T. became her fourth consecutive single to top the US charts.
While it’s not a number-one hit (not yet at least), Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) has reached the number-two spot on the charts, and could very well make it up to number one before its run is through. If it does, Teenage Dream, with five number-one singles, would go down as one of the most successful albums of all time.
The video for this song brings another level of storytelling to the already interesting (to say the least) lyrics, and watching Katy Perry take on the character of a headgear-wearing, anti-social, 8th grade nerd is hilarious. Also keep an eye out for all the great cameos.
