Katy Perry has scored a U.S. chart record by becoming the first artist in the Billboard Hot 100’s 52 years to spend an entire year in the top 10.
The pop star’s latest hit E.T. fell a spot from last week’s number one on Thursday, but the fact it’s still in the top 10 after five weeks on the chart gives her a full year there.

Her run began with California Gurls, which debuted at number two in May, 2010. That went on to spend six weeks at the top of the charts and 12 weeks in the top 10. It was followed by Teenage Dream, Firework and E.T.

Perry shatters Ace of Base’s record run in 1993 and 1994 – the Swedish group enjoyed 48 straight weeks in the Hot 100 top 10 with the hits All That She Wants, The Sign and Don’t Turn Around.
