Lady Gaga Scores Fastest Selling Album of the Year

06/02/2011
.
(Atom) Lady Gaga's Born This Way has become the fastest-selling album of the year around the world!

With 288,000 copies sold its first day (May 23) and 1,108,000 its first week in the U.S., Born This Way (Streamline/Interscope/KonLive) has debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart, the first Lady Gaga album to debut at the top spot.

Born This Way has also sold over 1,000,000 copies outside the U.S. The album debuted #1 in the U.K., where first-week sales were greater than the rest of the Top 10 combined and the best debut week by a solo American female artist since 2005, and debuting in the top spot in Australia, Austria, Brazil, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland and Taiwan.

Earlier this year, the title track became the fastest single in history to reach sales of 1,000,000 copies worldwide by breaking that mark in only five days. "Born This Way" became the first song to debut at #1 on the Hot 100 and remain at the top for more than a month since Elton John's 1997 version of "Candle In The Wind." In the last week, two other singles from Born This Way have also reached the U.S. Top 10: "Judas" and "The Edge Of Glory." In addition, "Judas" has cracked the Top 10 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Norway, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K. and elsewhere.
