Katy Perry has become the first artist ever to stay in the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a full year.
'California Gurls' entered the US chart at number two in the week of 16th May 2010, and Perry then stayed in the Top 10 with 'Teenage Dream', 'Firework', and now 'ET'.
Yahoo! Music reports that Perry's year-long stay in the Top 10 breaks a record previously held by the mighty Ace Of Base. With 'All That She Wants', 'The Sign', and 'Don't Turn Around', the Swedes had logged 48 weeks in the Top 10 between October 15 1993 to September 10 1994.
Katy Perry has also racked up a few more honours with 'ET'. It's her sixth song to sell more than 3m digital copies, which is more than any other artist — the next closest is Rihanna, with five songs selling more than 3m downloads. Plus, 'ET' has set a record for most weekly plays of any song on US radio.
Well done everyone.
