How DOES she do it? Lady Gaga has achieved another incredible record. Apple’s iTunes announced today (February 18) that Gaga’s new single “Born This Way” is now officially the fastest-selling single in the history of the iTunes store. Apple has historically declined to give out any sales figures for iTunes, but it broke protocol in a statement announcing the record, saying that “Born This Way” has hit #1 in all 23 countries with iTunes stores and sold more than 1 million tracks in just five days.
“The first single from Gaga’s upcoming album of the same name, due out on May 23, has also opened in a major way at radio, rushing onto theBillboard Radio Songs airplay chart at #6 with a first week audience of more than 78 million, giving Gaga the highest opening for a song since the chart began incorporating all radio formats in 1998,” reports MTV.
I’m kind of speechless, (and that’s pretty hard because I could talk to a brick wall for 20 minutes haha!) I’m amazed at just how many records Lady Gaga has broken and how people embrace her. What do y’all think of this new record?
