The song that could land Katy on top is 'The One That Got Away,' her sixth 'Teenage Dream' album single. Since the track dropped in October, it's peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it one of only seven albums to score six or more Hot 100 top 10s in Billboard history.
Now, it looks like Katy's camp is determined to make 'The One That Got Away' the one that sets a new Billboard record! The track has been discounted down to the super-low price of 69 cents on the U.S. iTunes Store. The original price of the audio download was $1.29 (the regular price of most current hits). Katy's single is currently the only song priced less than $1.29 among the top 75-selling singles in the iTunes Store.
Will the drastic price reduction, coupled with continued airplay and Katy's upcoming hosting gig this weekend on 'SNL' land her the new record? We'll find out soon!
