Katy Perry: "Last Friday Night" tops the 3 million mark
Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" tops the 3 million mark in digital sales this week. It's Perry's seventh 3-million-seller, a total topped only by Rihanna, with eight. But Rihanna's total includes two "featured" credits. Perry was either solo or in the lead on all seven of her hits.
Jason Lipshutz: A song like "One Last Time" demonstrates Grande's newfound maturity and ambition on My Everything: while the downbeat admission of "I know/that you got everything/But I got nothing here without you" is the pained sound of a narrator racked with guilt, the chorus sets aside humiliation and scoops up a sense of hope in front of pummeling drums and a 3-note synth line.
