Chart Check [Billboard 200]: Lady Gaga Places Three Albums In Top 25

If you thought Lady Gaga‘s Super Bowl-fueled resurgence was limited to the Billboard Hot 100, you thought wrong.

Yes, as we reported here, the singer/songwriter gave fans about a million reasons to fall in love again with her hit-filled catalog when she took to the Super Bowl 51 Halftime Show.  And, fall in love they did. Boosting her set ‘Joanne’ and its second single, ‘Million Reasons,’ to the top of album and digital sales charts respectively, newly unveiled stats reveal the streaming response was equally as potent.

The result?  Gaga’s ‘Reasons’ hopped to a Hot 100 peak of #4 and its parent album to #2 on the Billboard 200.  Look inside to see where other prized offerings from her discography landed on this week’s refreshed “Chart Check”:

Billboard 200 This Week

      Humble yourself, anyone performing in front of 100M will have a sale spike, the test is will Johnny Boy stay in the top 10 next week.

      That album has sold less copies than Lemonade and other albums every single week for the entire last year though. Charts are so pucked up right now that an album that sells so lowly can be there. Only that. Streaming force I guess 🙂

        But the point is, over a year later consumers and music listeners continue to listen to ANTI. THE CHARTS are not messed up. The billboard hot 100 includes sales+streams and rightfully so. There have been numerous reports showing anf stating that streaming makes up a large portion of music consumption. If you want to live in the past that’s a personal problem but everyone else has moved on just like we did from vinyl records to cassettes to CDs and now streaming. Album sales are DOWN. Plus there are albums released after ANTI that are nowhere to be found. If streaming were so easy and free, where is everyone’s album? Stop being bitter.

        Yeah I’m going to go ahead and say that no one but the navy give an f about billboards singles charts. They become more obsolete every year just like Rihanna herself. And her Anti tour receipts prove it. I love her but I just can’t with the delusion.

      The album is good. Some people have a problem with real changes of direction and genres and prefer the easy pop. Only that. She has proven herself now that she can do it all, and still prevail. Million Reasons, Sinners Prayer or Joanne are 3 fantastic songs for example. Fantastic.

        It sold 600K so far. Streaming is the industry now, if you don’t like it, you can be forever stressed along with your flopping faves. Oh and streaming helped Gags rechart, so don’t full yourself. Streaming companies pay the holder of the music masters, so Rihanna is doing great, worry about Innerscope talking all of Gag’s money from streaming.

        “Spotify says it pays labels and publishers between $0.006 and $0.0084 per stream. A Guardian report suggests that the average payment a signed artist gets after their label takes its share is a mere $0.001128”.

        That is why no one but the navy gives two fs about streaming. It’s one thing for fans to stan on twitter and blogs, a complete other thing to stan with them coins.
