After tying Michael Jackson’s record of 5 #1’s from one album, the world awaits to see if Katy Perry can officially beat the historic Billboard feat.
Will “The One That Got Away” be the song that does it for her? Discuss.September 29, 2011 at 10:32 pm #371205
This is my first post over here and I’m so happy to here that “The One That Got Away” is the 6th single! Great choice!September 30, 2011 at 5:17 am #371206
I had to say that although she sounded a little rough at times, and while during some songs I doubted if she was doing playback, I have to say that her tour show was a lot better than I expected (and it was FUN!). She sounds SOOO much better Live-Live than Live-TV or Live-YouTube. Her show has nothing to be ashamed of and it’s up there with some of the best from current pop stars. I still think she has potential for bigger and greater things…September 30, 2011 at 2:11 pm #371207
The thing is, she probably will beat MJ’s record. She’s got momentum in spades. Every song on the record could be a single, and they’d all go number one. If pirating music wasn’t so easy, she’d may have broken Michael’s album sales long ago…. A scary thought indeed.October 2, 2011 at 8:46 pm #371208
I would’ve rather had “Hummingbird Heartbeat” as the sixth single, but “The One That Got Away” is a solid choice.
I am a little confused about this radio edit/”touch-up” we were promised, as the version sent to radio appears to be exactly the same (even the same length).October 3, 2011 at 1:58 pm #371209
While I don’t mind TOTGA, Katy really should have gone with Hummingbird Heartbeat. Although chances of either reaching #1 and her breaking MJ’s record are practically nonexistent. I doubt TOTGA even cracks the top 10. Katy should have recorded some new material and rereleased Teenage Dream.October 3, 2011 at 4:44 pm #371210
Wow, she’s going for a 6th single. “The One That Got Away” is the only other song I kept from the album that wasn’t a single, so makes sense.October 5, 2011 at 7:07 pm #371211
Katy Perry’s next album will supposedly feature throw away tracks from “Teenage Dream”. Songs like “Dressing Up” will make the final cut.
This sounds like another “Sweet Escape” situation..October 5, 2011 at 7:18 pm #371212
Maybe, but we don’t know if it’s a re-release or an EP or a brand new album yet.
BUT I am so happy that “Dressin’ Up” will finally (probably) see a release! smash!October 7, 2011 at 1:44 pm #371213
I think “The One That Got Away” will be a hit. I don’t know if it will be another #1, but the sing is being released in a time where slow songs are what’s in. I think a lot of people will connect with the song.
BTW I hear she’s playing an old lady in the video.October 26, 2011 at 10:12 am #371215
One of her best live performances: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gK5JD_zGi8U (The One that Got Away on UK X-Factor)
I really wish her company would have released a version closer to what she did at the X Factor, instead of the drum-driven radio edit I heard this morning. I don’t think it will go number one and break Michael Jackson’s record to be honest…then again, who knows…”Party Rock Anthem” is one of the biggest hits…hmmm….October 26, 2011 at 10:45 am #371216
Don’t get me wrong, I like Katy, but I whole-heartedly hope that she isn’t the one to break MJ’s record.
It just wouldn’t be kosher!!November 3, 2011 at 11:38 pm #371217
“The One That Got Away” is up to #16 on iTunes and has blasted onto the top 40 of the Hot 100. Sixth #1, here she comes.November 4, 2011 at 2:46 am #371218
I think we spoke too soon regarding Last Friday Night’s chances and that struggled so much to reach the top spot. I don’t know if people are using reverse psychology when they say a song will reach the top. However, i don’t think this will be a record breaking song as well.
