Perry rose to fame in 2008 with her second album, One of the Boys, a pop rock record containing the controversial U. S number one song "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hot n Cold". Three subsequent albums have topped the U. S. Billboard 200. The disco-influenced Teenage Dream (2010) spawned five chart topping U. S. Billboard Hot 100 singles–"California Gurls", "Teenage Dream", "Firework", "E. T. ", and "Last Friday Night (T. G. I. F. )" — a record tying her with Michael Jackson's Bad. Its follow-up record Prism (2013) was inspired by her divorce and incorporates pop and dance along with themes of self-reflection, everyday life, and relationships. With the music videos for its chart-topping songs "Roar" and "Dark Horse", Perry became the first artist to have multiple videos reach one billion views on Vevo. 2017's electropop Witness featured a political subtext and a theme of liberation. The album's lead single "Chained to the Rhythm" broke Spotify's record at the time for most first-day streams for a song by a female artist. Her sixth studio album Smile followed on August 28, 2020.
