If the tune ends up topping the charts like the rest of her singles, Katy would then have more #1′s from the same album than Michael Jackson – or anyone else, for that matter. But that’s not the reason they’re releasing the song to radio.
“If it goes to No. 1, that would be great,” said Greg Thompson, of EMI Music/Capitol Records EVP/marketing and promotion. “If not, we still have a Katy song on the radio in fourth quarter.”
Expect “One” to get a radio edit “touch-up” and a video.
