London: Pop star Katy Perry is set to equal a record held by Michael Jackson for a quarter of a century.
If her latest single, ‘Last Friday Night (TGIF)’, reaches the top spot in The Billboard Hot 100, she will equal MJ’s record of five No1s from the same album.
The King Of Pop was the last star to achieve that feat - with 1987 album ‘Bad’, reports the Sun.
And the 26-year-old singer will be the first female to hit the mark in the 52-year history of the US charts.
Her fifth single is currently at No4, but is gaining sales and is expected to climb again next week.
Michael, who died in June 2009, scored five hits from his eighties album with ‘I Just Can``t Stop Loving You’, ‘Bad’, ‘The Way You Make Me Feel’, ‘Man In The Mirror’ and ‘Dirty Diana’.
