Katy Perry & Kanye West › E.T.

I've been raving about the Benny Benassi remix for a while now, but just found out that Katy Perry's new single E.T. (now with a Kanye West version) has scored the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Really? I feel that came out of nowhere. Anyway, this is already her fourth chart-topper from her album Teenage Dream in the United States following California Gurls with Snoop Dogg, Teenage Dream and Firework. The feat has also put her in some pretty good company since it's the first album since Usher's Confessions - from 2004 - to spawn four #1 singles and the first female to do it since Mariah Carey's eponymous debut album in 1990-91. Other artists' albums that accomplished this Billboard Hot 100 milestone include Whitney Houston's Whitney, George Michael's Faith, Paula Abdul's Forever Your Girl and Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814. Way to go Ms. Perry!

Another treat? Well, the music video is already out and it's very sci-fi and very different to her previous ones, which gives it bonus points on my list. Directed by Floria Sigismondi.
