It is the fifth single from Perry’s third studio album, Teenage Dream, and topped the Billboard Hot 100 and Canadian Hot 100 charts. Like all of Perry’s previous Teenage Dream singles, it topped the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Digital Songs, Pop Songs, Radio Songs, and Hot Dance Club charts. As of August 24, 2011, “Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)” has sold over 2,191,000 copies in the US.
A remix featuring Missy Elliott was released to US radio stations and digital retailers on August 8, 2011. The song became Katy Perry’s sixth number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and her fifth consecutive number-one single. Perry became the first woman in the 53-year history of Billboard to take five singles from the same album to number one on the Hot 100, equaling the record established by Michael Jackson twenty-three years earlier.
