Katy Perry really wants to break a Billboard record.
After releasing two versions of The One That Got Away, Perry has rebooted the song and launched it as an acoustic single.
Special surprise 4U on iTunes! The amazing Jon Brion & I put a little ACOUSTIC spin on #the1thatgotaway. Hope you like! Perry wrote on Twitter Tuesday night.
In November, Perry, 27, released the original studio version of the ballad as the sixth single from her third studio album, Teenage Dream.
Unlike its predecessors, Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.), E.T., Firework, California Gurls and Teenage Dream, The One That Got Away has been struggling to reach the top spot on the Billboard 100 chart.
13 weeks and a second treatment later (with help from rapper B.o.B.), the single is now sitting at number six, with a peak position of third place.
The Billboard 100 chart is currently dominated by Rihanna (We Found Love), LMFAO (Sexy And I Know It) and Bruno Mars (It Will Rain). Singes from Adele and Flo Rida round out the top five.
Why all the attention on one single?
Two words: Michael Jackson.
If The One That Got Away reaches the coveted number one spot, Perry will become the first artist with seven number one singles from the same album -- and in doing so, beat Jackson's previous record.
The Billboard 100 record has been held by Jackson since 1987, when the King of Pop released Bad. The album went on to release five number one singles, including I Just Can't Stop Loving You and The Way You Make Me Feel.
Teenage Dream has sold more than 1.7 million copies in the U.S. since its 2010 release.
Perry is set to perform in Jakarta, Indonesia on Thursday, in support of the album.
