Pop star Katy Perry has become the first female artist in US chart history to score five US Hot 100 No.1's from one album.

The ‘California Girls’ singer matched the record set by the late Michael Jackson who managed to achieve the same feat in 1987-88 with tracks from the album ‘Bad.’ Jackson and Perry are the only two artists in the 53-year-history of the Billboard Hot 100 to achieve this feat.

Perry took to Twitter to say: "What a way to wake up! SO proud to announce that the little-engine-that-could of a song ‘LAST FRIDAY NIGHT’ is officially #1 & made HISTORY!" later adding "I couldn’t have done it without ya, really I owe u guys BIG… so take this moment to give yourself a high FIVE!!!”

The 26-year-old LP ‘Teenage Dream’ has spawned the chart toppers ‘California Gurls’, ‘Teenage Dream’, ‘Firework’, ‘E.T’ and now ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F) ’ after the releasing a remix version of the track featuring Missy Elliot which took the pop/rock track to the top spot.

According to Billboard.com, the remix of the track accounted for a quarter of the single’s digital sales, while the original version of ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)’ is continuing to perform well on US radio.
