Since the release of “California Gurls” in May of last year, the first single off of her most recent album Teenage Dream, Katy Perry has had a song in the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. That tune, along with “Teenage Dream” and “Firework,” have ensured that Katy has kept a top-ten spot for 42 consecutive weeks, and according to, Perry is now tied with Mariah Carey and Santana for the second longest streak ever.

The record is 48 weeks, set by Ace of Base in 1993 and 1994.  The Ace of Base songs that kept the group in the top-ten were “All The She Wants,” “Don’t Turn Around” and “The Sign.”

Do you think Katy has what it takes to top Ace of Base?
