It's good to be Katy Perry right now. Check that, it's really good to be the "California Gurl" singer.

Yesterday she snagged the number one single on Top 40 radio for "Wide Awake" which means it's the ninth time she's accomplished that feat!

Plus, the same song landed her tenth numero uno hit on the Billboard Dance/Club Play chart. Keep in mind Katy ties Rihanna with the most number one hits on the Top 40 chart but according to Billboard, this is different than the Barbados-born singer.

"The achievement is even more impressive given that while the chart launched the week of Oct. 3, 1992, Rihanna didn’t first grace the list until 2005 and Perry didn’t arrive until 2008. Of the acts with the most Mainstream Top 40 No. 1s, the top seven are women.”

As for the other women right at their heels? Lady Gaga, Pink and Britney Spears with seven number one hits each. They even surpass Beyoncé and Mariah Carey who hold six number one titles. 

In addition to the strides "Wide Awake" has made on the charts, it's also featured in her movie, Part of Me, which is on track to gross $30 million dollars internationally, as pointed out by The Hollywood Reporter. It's also the fourth biggest music documentary of all time.

So, like we said, it's really good to be Katy Perry. Go girl!
