Katy’s latest single “Roar” officially knocked Robin Thicke’s now infamous twerking anthem “Blurred Lines” from the top of the charts after a 10-week reign. The musical upset means Katy is now tied with RiRi for the most number one songs in the 21-year history of the Billboard Chart. Each leading lady currently has 10 to her name. Right behind is Pink with nine top hits.
Clearly there’s only one way to end the tie: a rumble in the jungle. The two, dressed in their choice of animal print, grillz, and/or whipped cream can bras, can have an old-fashioned sing-off, swapping musical hits with the likes of “Teenage Dream,” “Umbrella,” “Firework,” and, that oldie but a goodie, “Pon de Replay.” Snoop Dog/Lion will serve as referee and official ganja distributor if things get too fierce.
Word to the wise, though, RiRi: Katy’s known as the fastest draw on the charts. “Roar” made the quickest climb to the top of the pop songs chart since she released “California Gurls.” The rapid ascent made Katy the only entertainer to have a single hit number one in as few as six weeks in more than eight years.
And so the question remains: Who will show them what she’s worth as the only girl in the world? Pick your team in the comments below!
