Lady Gaga’s “Artpop” debuts at #1 on Billboard!
As expected, Lady Gaga’s third studio album Artpop debuts at #1 on the Billboard charts with 258,000 copies sold. Now, this is a far cry from 2011’s Born This Way which sold 1.1 million copies sold first week. Now, even though she sold BTW for $0.99 with Amazon, she STILL was able to sell over 600,000 copies of that album first week at full-retail prices. So the question is, are people tired of Lady Gaga already? We were expecting Gaga to do at least 500,000 first week. However, this is still a #1 album for her, and the first single reach Top 10 status. She is still pretty relevant. We are not a fan of the song with her and R. Kelly at all, and haven’t heard the album. If you heard the album, let us know your thoughts. Anyway, congrats to you Lady Gaga.
