Lady GaGa’s ‘Born This Way’ can’t be stopped. After crushing the records previously held by Britney Spears, the singer’s 1st single from her new album of the same name has matched the accomplishments of another Pop titan – Beyonce.
‘Born…’ has experienced a 14% increase in digital sales this week, climbing from 448k to 509k downloads. This makes the track the 1st #1-debuting single Digital Songs chart to achieve that feat since Beyonce’s ‘Single Ladies’ in 2008.
The airplay figures for ‘Born…’ also managed to rise by 7% to 84 million audience impressions, helping it to maintain its position at the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. By comparison, Spears’ ‘Hold It Against Me’ fell to #6 on the tally in its 2nd week.
