Katy Perry challenges Michael Jackson’s singles record with sixth cut from ‘Teenage Dream’

'The One That Got Away' needs to go to number one to do it

Katy Perry is set to release a new single ‘The One That Got Away’ – the sixth single from her ‘Teenage Dream’ album.

Billboard reports that if the track goes to Number One in the US it will beat Michael Jackson‘s record for chart toppers from one album, which he achieved with 1987’s ‘Bad’.

Perry has so far topped the US charts with ‘California Gurls’, ‘Teenage Dream’, ‘Firework’, ‘ET’ and ‘Last Friday Night’.

“Nothing ventured, nothing gained,” EMI‘s VP Greg Thompson said of the release, adding: “If it goes to Number One, that would be great. If not, we still have a Katy song on the radio in fourth quarter.”

A “touch up” of the song will be released to radio by its original producer Dr Luke, while the label is said to be reading treatments for the accompanying music video.

Meanwhile, Katy Perry‘s ‘California Dreams’ tour returns to the UK and Ireland next month for the following dates:

Sheffield Motorpoint Arena (October 12)
