It’s [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Katy Perry[/lastfm]! The “Teenage Dream” singer and voice of Smurfette in the new animated feature is set to become the first artist since Michael Jackson to achieve five number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100 from the same album.

Perry’s teenage pop anthems from her latest album Teenage Dream have dominated the charts since its release, and her latest single “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” is said to hit number one on the hot 100 later this week.

Her previous singles to top the charts include her 2010 summer anthem “California Gurls,” “Teenage Dream,” “Firework” and “E.T.” Her current single “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” also includes a very special cameo by WAVE favorite Kenny G in the star-studded 80s themed video.

Michael Jackson’s singles from Bad that reached number on the Hot 100 charts include “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” “Bad,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Man In The Mirror,” and “Dirty Diana.”

Perry’s latest single is said to be the final release from her current album, but she could keep going with her dance hit “Peacock,” which has the potential of being a sixth number one hit for the pop star.

    I thought it was going to be “Raffi”; you know, the guy that sings, “Shake My Sillies OUt” for kids.
