Seriously. Katy Perry is a woman on a mission.
2011 is the year she conquered the music scene and she has the record-breaking numbers to prove it. And she just tied yet another record which puts her in an elite group of artists.
Katy Perry’s massively successful “Teenage Dream" album is just the third in Billboard’s Hot 100's 53-year history to generate at least six top five hits.
To date, "Teenage Dream" has sold 1.9 million copies around the world (Nielsen SoundScan). Crazy numbers.
As we marvel at Katy Perry seemingly endless chart breaking accomplishments with her latest album, here is a playlist that includes the three albums that have had as many as six Billboard Hot 100 top five hits.

And cue my Twitter encounter with a rock band from Austin, Texas by the name of Electric Touch.
Last week we bonded over a tweet about Pringles Ketchup Chips. Yes ketchup chips. True story. I am like the unofficial Twitter ketchup chip pusher. For real. Just ask @Turntablez - I converted him this year. And now he's 100% addicted. And cue my evil laugh...muahahahaha.
But I digress back to the boys in Electric Touch.
The band is made up from members that hail from both sides of the Atlantic and as a result their five-piece band delivers that all-American rock sound with a Brit infused vibe. The band refers to their music as "tales of ordinary life in glorious technicolor".
All I know is that the band has got that swagger to them and lots of character and their first single from their 'Don't Stop" EP is le damn catchy.
You can catch Electric Touch as they tour with Hot Chelle Rae in Canada...
