Katy Perry First Female Artist to Have Three Billboard #1s in Over a Decade

Katy Perry has become the first female artist to have three number one, Billboard chart topping, singles in over a decade. Perry's most recent single, "Fireworks," just landed in the number one spot on Billboard's Hot 100, following suit behind the June release of "California Gurls" and September release of "Teenage Dream."

Perry took the three single Billboard bragging right from former record holder Monica's eleven year reign. Monica held the title for her songs "The Boy Is Mine," "The First Night," and Angel of Mine" which landed in Billboard's #1 spot from June 1998 until February 1999.

Perry's 2008 release of "I Kissed A Girl (And I Liked It)" was her first single to top Billboard's chart.
