KATY PERRY'S new single "Wide Awake" has moved into the Number One position on Billboard's Pop Songs chart, and that has set a new record.
--It's Katy's NINTH Number One on the Pop Songs chart, which is more than anyone else since Billboard debuted the chart nearly 20 years ago.
--That's impressive when you consider the fact that Katy didn't get her first #1 until 2008 . . . so she's achieved that mark in just four years.
--Interestingly enough, the top seven acts with the most Number Ones on the Pop Songs chart are all WOMEN.
--Rihanna has EIGHT . . . followed by Lady Gaga, Pink and Britney Spears with SEVEN . . . and Beyoncé and Mariah Carey have SIX apiece.
