Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” Is Fastest Selling Single in iTunes History

Standard

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?

  1. it’s a great record to break. I think people love the song for its amazing message. Gaga’s antics are annoying but she is so talented and her music appeals to so many.
