Lady Gaga is “Born” to be # 1

Grammy winning pop music superstar Lady Gaga sure does like to make an entrance. Whether it’s in an egg at the Grammy Awards or by selling a massive 1.1million copies of her new album, Born This Way, she always leaves her mark. With her debut at # 1, she lands her first # 1 album and sells the most records in a week since 2005. Her previous albums peaked at # 2 (The Fame), # 5 (The Fame Monster) and # 6 (Remixes). She also has four songs on the Hot 100 including her current smash “The Edge of Glory” (# 8), her former chart topper “Born This Way” (# 42) and two debuts “You and I” (# 37) and “Marry the Night” (# 79). That’s quite a week for Gaga. And she should hold the top spot on the Billboard Top 200 Album charts for several weeks… She did have a little competition on the charts this week though. Other debuts in the top ten cam from Brad Paisley (netting his 7th top ten album and 8th # 1 country album), Foster the People, the Glee Cast and boy band super group NKOTBSB. With their dual album hitting # 7, New Kids on the Block nabbed their 5th top ten album while Backstreet Boys grabbed their 8th consecutive top ten album. For more on the album charts, head to Billboard here and check out the new top ten below.
