10 best songs by Katy Perry Queen of pop
Goodness knows how tough the competition can be in the music industry. But this has not stopped this prolific songstress, as she makes her unforgettable mark in music history.
Not bad for an entertainer who was dropped by two major record labels at the beginning of her career. And then went on to become one of the world’s highest selling singers. I bet those record labels must be feeling pretty silly right now!
Single handedly, this exceptional American singer/songwriter and recording artiste has shrugged off a sluggish start to her music career to emerge as one of the top entertainment gems of this era.
Despite fierce and considerable competition from some major artistes in her genre, Perry still soars.
But when I said Katy had an uncertain and shaky start, I meant every word. Originally named Kathryn Elizabeth Hudson, she kicked of her career as a teenager and a gospel singer. Can you believe that? It has been said many times that some of the greatest singers the world has ever seen, had roots in gospel music. The likes of Whitney Houston, R Kelly and even The King, Elvis Presley had strong singing backgrounds in gospel music and some of them even continued to dabble in it throughout their careers. And Katy was no exception.
Till date, it is her most successful album and and her first number one album on the Billboard charts. Five of the tracks on this album made it to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. This made it only the second album in music history to have five songs make number one. The only other artiste to pull off this incredible feat is the King of Pop Michael Jackson. He achieved this with his mega successful 1987 album ‘Bad’ .
