Lady GaGa’s ‘Born This Way’ Reigns Supreme On Billboard 200

Published: Wednesday 1st Jun 2011 by David

It seems that there is no stronger bond than that of Lady GaGa and her little Monsters.

For once again they have shown their support for the ‘Judas’ singer by going out and purchasing her latest album ‘Born This Way‘ in their thousands which has led the starlet scoring another Billboard #1.

Find out how many copies of ‘Born’ were sold this week below…

1.1 million copies.

In its first week of release, the LP which features the singles  ‘The Edge Of Glory‘ and ‘Hair‘ shifted a whopping 1.1 million copies in the US alone.

GaGaDaily and HitsDailyDouble both report that the record is the fastest selling album of the year to date and is also the ninth fastest selling album in the country ever.

Released just days ago, ‘Born’ is the 25 year old’s third album and is on course to trump ‘The Fame Monster‘ to  become her highest selling project yet even though LP sales in the music industry remain at an all time low.

Who would have thought that the brunette working the underground circuit just four years ago would become the undisputed Chart Queen of this generation?

Job well done GaGa.

    I’m going to give gaga her props cuz I like her biut I would like to know how many of those were sold at full retail price and not for 99 cents. To me the 99 cent ones don’t count.

  4. KYLE June 1, 2011

    SHE COULDNT EVEN BEAT GODNEYS RECORD FOR FIRST WEEK SALES EVEN WITH HER AMAZON DEAL. GIRL BYE.

    *SIPS MINUTE MAID*

  5. leo June 1, 2011

    regardless if it was discouted!! i could of been a penny or 20 dollars!! 1,100,000 still purchased it!! wich means 1,100,000 cared to listen to the album!!! nobody will top those sales this year!!

  6. Music Lover June 1, 2011

    Seriously who actually brought this album? I dont see no one talking about this album. No one talking about the material of the album its self. its about the numbers. One million this and one million that.

    But what about the material of the album. I think this album is over hyped and its lack luster. The material of the album does not match match the hype surrounded by the album.

    But regardless I think its very impressive to see gaga push one million copies the first week.. I mean anything less than that would have been a FLOP, considering all the promo and hype surrounding the album.

  7. Ihavetheclap June 1, 2011

    I just wonder if the people who paid 99 cents had to pay full price would they have still bought the album it’s first week out or had to wait till payday this Friday or something. I’m just saying.

  8. KYLE June 1, 2011

    THIS B**** ONLY BROKE A MILLION IN SALES BECAUSE SHE SOLD HER ALBUM FOR LESS THAN A DOLLAR SMH….

    SO I GUESS I CAN MAKE AN ALBUM AND SELL IT FOR A PENNY TO 12, 000 PEOPLE AND I WILL BEAT LADY COKEWHORES SALES!!! YES!!!

    *MAKES MORE MINUTE MAID*

    GAGA IS SLAYING IN NONE OF YOU BRITNEY, RIHANNA, BEYONCE STANS CAN DEAL! WHAT F*****’ REALITY DO YOU FOLKS LIVE IN???

    FACTS THE FACTS, GAGA IS SLAYING AND NOT LOOKING BACK…EVERY SINGLE RELEASED FROM ‘BTW’ HAS DEBUT IN THE TOP 10 OF THE HOT 100…HOW ABOUT BEY’S *crickets*….UM, OK.

    S***, YOU BEY STANS CAN’T EVEN GET YOUR GIRL A NUMBER ONE SINGLE ON THE ITUNES CHARTS…LEARN TO THAT, THEN COME FOR GAGA!

  14. Nic June 1, 2011

    @IHAVETHECLAP I wonder the same thing. I like gaga’s music and think she is very talented artist. However I wonder would many other artists have bigger first week sales if their albums were sold for $.99.

  15. Baby Jay June 1, 2011

    WOW…THE PROOF IS IN THE NUMBERS…AND YA’LL STILL HATIN…WOW…JUST…WOW…I GUESS THAT’S WHY GAGA IS SELLING MILLIONS AND WE ON HERE HATING…HATERS STAY ON BOTTTOM…PPL LIKE GAGA, BRITNEY, BEYONCE STAY ON TOP BECAUSE THEY AINT GOT TIME TO HATE…LOOK AT LIL KIM…ALL THAT HATE SHE GOT FOR NICKI MINAJ AND SHE STILL DONT HAVE A TRU COMEBACK SONG…HATE LEAVES HERE ON THATGRAPE

  16. sean June 1, 2011

    @ kyle i agree…selling cds for 99cents that is not whatsup

  17. Prince&Queen Bey June 1, 2011

    Wow im speechless… Lol @ Blue Kid

  18. Jayjay June 1, 2011

    To shut you haters down only 440,000 of the albumns sold at .99 cents over 600,000 was regular price which still out sold your fav and mine but I’m gonna keep it real and admit that and the amazon thing had nothing to do with her so con grates lady gaga they can stay mad. Oh and my fav is not a female.

  19. SHOCKED June 1, 2011

    a lot of artist sell their cds cheaper during the first week so that’s nothing new. even rihanna did this with Rated R. Either way this is impressive so u gotta give the girl her props.

  20. Gaga slays*insert your fave’s name*anyday of the week June 1, 2011

    Kyle HO SIT DOWN…..BTW STILL DOING BETTER THEN FEMME FATALE……..

    I guess people were right when they say assholes are like excuses

  21. Jayjay June 1, 2011

    I only say that because I was trying my hardest to say it was because of the cheap discount but her regular sales numbers shut me up. I like her but not even .99 cents worth

  22. Jay Jay June 1, 2011

    1st thing I am going to sayl is Congrats but I mean selling ur album for .99 cents is a cop out. Truely shows how desperate record labels are to get big numbers. She would have sold at least 500,000k without the .99 cents promo.

    MARK MY WORDS all artists will start selling there albums for .99 cents. Watch

  23. Christian June 1, 2011

    IMO if it wasn’t for the 0.99 BS “BTW” wouldn’t have sold a million or over a million copies. It’s just great marketing. So kudos to her team.

    But also congrats to Taylor Swift and to Britney Spears of still hoozing the 1.3 million record.

    The females are DOMINATING!!!!

  24. THE BEYONCE ERA IS OVER June 1, 2011

    GET THE F*** OVER THIS WHOLE .99 CENTS THING…I DON’T SEE WHAT’S THE BIG F*****’ DEAL! THAT WAS HELLA SMART STRATEGY-WISE FOR HER AND HER TEAM. I BET YOU IF BEY, BRITYNEY, AND RIRI DO THE SAME THING…Y’ALL WOULDN’T BE SAYING S***!

    MATTER OF FACT, I WONDER HOW MANY ARTIST ARE GOING TO START DOING .99 CENTS SPECIALS SINCE IT WORKED FOR GAGA. GO AHEAD AND BE A BUNCH OF FOLLOWERS TO GET SOME SELLS *AND I’M TALKING ABOUT BEYONCE*

    AND FYI: THE 99 CENT SPECIAL ONLY SOLD 400K ON AMAZON, WHILE 800K, I REPEAT…800K WERE SOLD IN STORES!

  25. mehtney this way June 1, 2011

    YASSSS YASSS

    WHO RUN THIS MUTHA? WHO RUN THIS MUTHA?

    LEGEND GAGA. THANK U TGJ STAFF. THE FORMER BRUNETTE WORKIN THE UNDERGROUND CIRCUIT IS NOW THE UNDISPUTED MUSIC LEGEND OF OUR GENERATION.

    BTW IS #1 IN US UK JAPAN FRANCE AND DEUTSCHLAND.

    BTW IS THE ALBUM OF THE DECADE.

  26. #1QueenGaga June 1, 2011

    HELL YEAHHHH!!!!!!!!

    I SAID IT BEFORE AND I’LL SAY IT AGAIN AND AGAIN….

    LADY GAGA IS THE OFFICIAL QUEEN OF POP!!!!

  27. What’s My Name June 1, 2011

    Do you guys think gaga will block beyonces first week? Just a thought.. Bey drops in like 4 weeks and I’m sure gaga will still be doing big numbers come June 28th

  28. I_love_music! June 1, 2011

    @ihavetheclap 300,000 copies were sole during the two days of the $.99 cent sale. So she sold way more albums at full price than she did during the $.99 sale. She still would have sold more copies than any artist right now without that sale.

  29. mehtney this way June 1, 2011

    AMAZON BOUGHT BORN THIS WAY $9 WHOLESALE PRICE THEN DECIDED TO SELL IT CHEAPER. GO TO SCHOOL. LEARN TO READ N UNDERSTAND WHAT U READ.

    ANYWAY, AMAZON IS A MONSTER. AMAZON STANS FOR LEGEND GAGA.

    BTW IS THE ALBUM OF THE DECADE. SELLING 1.1 MILLION IN 2011. ONLY THE LEGEND. ONLY THE LEGEND

  30. stan June 1, 2011

    if it wasn’t for the amazon promo, she probably would’ve sold 700-800k instead. which is still an excellent number.

  31. Jayjay June 1, 2011

    And one more thing while you all are hating on gaga you do know .99 cents or not she made more than Oprah one quarter in Forbes this year right. Look it up. Now THOSE numbers really don’t lie. Your fav? Your fav? Mine? We not counting Beyonce because she always in Forbes. That bith know how to make money.

  32. Jayjay June 1, 2011

    There can only be one jay jay. Check the avi it’s been here cut it out.

  33. StupidPeoplePissMeOff June 1, 2011

    Yall are so simple. Billboard confirmed the free copies were not counted. Plus Billboard also said her album was going to do a million any way. The 0.99 cents thing was Amazon’s idea and 70% of Gaga’s sales came from the more expensive deluxe edition.

  34. Jay Jay June 1, 2011

    @ beyonce era

    I’m not hating I mean it’s a smart thing but Taylor swift sold 1.3 without discounting. Britney sold over a mill twice without discounting. But I guess with people able to download albums illegally it’s smart to sell for .99 cuz everyone can afford it. Consumers will be happy cuz they got the album for cheap and record labels get their numbers they wanted. But it all comes to tour sales IMO

  35. FameKills June 1, 2011

    when did Britney sell 1 mill in a week? she was hot when?!?

    Beyonce has never
    Rihanna will never

    only Adele & Taylor Swift can compete with Gaga on sales. Beyonce can try again on her next album cause this ‘ 4’ isnt turning up to be anything special.

  36. #1QueenGaga June 1, 2011

    WOMEN LIE, MEN LIE, BUT NUMBERS DON’T!!!!!!!

    LADY GAGA IS PRESSIN THESE HATERS SO HARD RIGHT NOW!!!!! LOVES IT!!!

    BOW YOUR HEAD THE THE NEW AND OFFICIAL QUEEN OF POP!!!

    S****** GOT NOTHING ON LADY GAGA!!!

  37. gaga the 99cents girl June 1, 2011

    gaga sold her album for 99cents ..gaga has the most dumbest fans ever the b**** cant sell a cd without putting 99cent on it until this freak learn to sell a cd with the regular price she will never earn my respect or be no damn queen..this is a sad day if u ask me

  38. D June 1, 2011

    rhianna sold rated r for 99 cents too but she sold 160k in the first week. so what about that and i only buy janet albums, and don’t but ri or gaga.

  39. Jay Jay June 1, 2011

    @ fame kills

    Britney 1st two albums sold over 1 mill and they both sold well over 30 million ww each

  40. itsbkinthemix June 1, 2011

    Even without the amazon deal, it still would’ve sold at least 800,000 copies, which is WAY more than anybody is selling nowadays! At least now we all know that any haters still talking are officially delusional.

  41. darnell June 1, 2011

    1 million in a week is good but gaga is not that good of a musician imo. she’s vastly overrated. when she beats mariah’s records than we can call her queen but until then, just call her lady gaga

BUT IF GAGA DID APPROVE IT, WHO CARES…THAT SALE GAVE GAGA FANS WHO MAYBE COULDN’T AFFORD THE DELUXE EDITION A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE THE ‘BTW’ ALBUM.

    WHO @CTUALLY RUN THIS MUTHA?

  55. Jay Jay June 1, 2011

    @ beyonce era

    Its a smart ass move! I’m mad I didn’t take advantage of it -_- lol.

  56. badd June 1, 2011

    @Jay Jay
    Taylor sold
    1.04 million without discounting…and notice that
    she is COUNTRY…how many times do ppl have to
    bring up T-Swift just so they can be shut down.
    Taylor is COUNTRY regardless of whether or not
    her songs sound country or any of that other non-sense
    she is labeled as country and country albums ALWAYS
    do better than regular albums here…that’s just the way it is.

    & you CAN’T compare sales from 1999 to sales from 2011.
    Gaga sold about 200K less than Britney….making her seem
    10X better seeing that the music industry has been at a
    DRASTIC downfall lately….selling like 2.5 million in 1999
    is equal to 1 million now.

    & if were going to talk tour sales…Gaga slays in that too.
    Almost EVERY show in the monster ball was sold out.
    which is why there was a 2nd leg…Gaga, Taylor Swift, &
    Justin Beiber were the ONLY ppl selling tour tickets
    during the summer….everyone else was doing seemingly
    bad and there were TONS of articles (even billboard) talking
    about it….stop the foolishness ppl..and give credit where it is due.

  57. Jay Jay June 1, 2011

    @ methney

    This album is not the album of the decade. I’m sure her next album will be better and be the album of the decade! Lol

  58. badd June 1, 2011

    If you want to compare Britney & Gaga
    (not that is should happen at all)
    you should compare based on years….
    like The Fame/Fame Monster with Circus
    and Born This Way with Femme Fatale….
    you can’t compared Born This Way with Oops!
    That just doesn’t make sense…different
    time periods in the music industry and different
    times in artists career.

  59. Auntie Jackie June 1, 2011

    As hard as they pushes this s***…is it ANY wonder? Come on now. it’s in Walgreens, Starbucks, she got every kind of promotion known to man because they want to prove the 360 degree deal with produce on FAIL-proof model for the music industry. She’s talented, but let’s be real.

  60. #1QueenGaga June 1, 2011

    TODAY WAS THE MOMENT I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR FOR ALMOST A YEAR. KNOWING THAT GAGA WILL OUT SHINE ALL HER COMPETITION ESPECIALLY IN ALBUM SALES.

    THANK YOU GAGA FOR PROVING WHAT A FORCE YOU ARE AND THAT THESE HATERS WILL HAVE TO LIVE WITH THE FACE THAT YOU ARE TRULY THE QUEEN OF POP!!!!

  61. SHESDUMB 1.1 MILLION B******!!!!!KAN UR FAVE DO THAT? June 1, 2011

    HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL
    YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH

    I MEAN REALLY ARE ANY OF U BLOGGERS SURPRISED BY THESE NUMBERS?
    WHETHER AMAZON SALES COUNTED OR NOT, SHE STILL SLAYED.

    SHE SLAYED:
    BEYAWNCE
    RIHANNA
    KATY PERRY
    BRITNEY SPEARS

    ANYONE WHO DISAGREES IS DELUSIONAL BEYOND REPAIR AND NEED TO BE LOCKED UP IN A LOONEY BIN.

  62. FameKills June 1, 2011

    LMAO @ METHNEY THIS WAY

    “im gonna drink my tears tonight youre gonna eat your words tonight” so true

    @ Christian

    she got the record when, you know, BUYING a physical copy of the album was the only way one could hear it but ok yea she holds the record, its in the books, she can sit down now and make way for artists who can actually sing

  63. Jay Jay June 1, 2011

    @ badd

    Calm down I’m not even out to get gaga. I even said without her doing this promo it will still sell well. But ny point was that selling ur album for .99 is a cop out just to boost numbers I mean if ur super mega slay wig snatcher pop star u should be able to pull in those sales when u sell ur album for regular price. Yes it was 1999 but in 1999 I remember CDs were at least 15 for the minimum most of the good ones were $20. But we can debate this all u want but I’m not wasting my time I said it before and I will say it again Congrats gaga.

  64. mehtney this way June 1, 2011

    WHO CARES FOR BRITNEY RECORD? IT WAS WHEN DOWLOADS N MP3 DIDN’T REALLY EXIST. IT HAS ZERO IMPACT.

    BORN THIS WAY, THE ALBUM OF THE DECADE SOLD 1,1 MILLION 1ST WEEK IN 2011 AKA THE ILLEGAL DOWNLOAD ERA.

    WHO @CTUALLY RUN THIS MUTHA?

    I AGREE WITH MY FELLOW MONSTAHS: MEN LIE WOMEN LIE GRAMMIES ARE BASED ON SOME PEOPLE OPINIONS, BILLBOARD MILLEMIUM AWARDS ARE BASED ON SOME PEOPLE OPINIONS BUT NUMBERS NEVER EVER LIE.

  65. Yo June 1, 2011

    I’m cosiging to Leo.

    And @Kyle you can’t compare album sales from over 10 years ago to album sales now. The album market has gone done a good 60 percent since then and illegal downloading is at an all time high. Either way 1.1 million US people wanted the album and purchased it no matter what the cost. Most of them would have gladly paid full price but they had a chance to save money. I would have too but I bought mine at full price before I heard about Amazon. Its funny you have to look that far back to find a record Gaga hasn’t broken.

    @ BADD – Britney and Gaga shouldn’t be compare to one another AT ALL!!! Gaga should be compare againt Kesha and Katy perry as far as sales is concerned. I dunno why britney and Beyonces name keep popping up in Gaga posts and vice versa. Gaga, Britney and Beyonce gonna be the ones laughing in the end.

    These fans wars are utterly RIDICULOUS!!!!

    & Jay Jay – BOMT didn’t sell a million it’s first week. The album sold 125 000 copies but ended up being 14x platinum. But Britney has 2 Diamond albums. Maybe u was referring to her diamond albums. 🙂

  70. Yo June 1, 2011

    @Jay jay
    Amazon exploited her by selling it for 99 cents. They bought digital copies from the record label at full price and resold them. They wanted to compete with itunes and used her to do it.

  71. gaga only June 1, 2011

    I like Gaga and love what she has brought to the industry. However, this album is so f****** blah. I’m so disappointed

  78. FameKills June 1, 2011

    @ #1QUEENGAGA

    nobody wants to here autotuned generic crap aka Femme Fatale by someone who doesnt meet the definition of ‘musical artist’. thats why it hasnt even sold over 500k in the US yet. Platinum is no where in sight for Britney.

  79. kool June 1, 2011

    It’s so good for her. If only my fave could pull these numbers. I’d be so excited. Her fans are lucky. She deserves it. People can say whatever they want but this girl is talented.

  80. queen beyonce stann June 1, 2011

    LMFAOOO At The Fact that She Had To Resort To Selling It For Less Than A Dollar xD
    Anyone Who Does That Is Obviously Gonna Sell More Than 500K
    && Not To Mention That Best Buy Gave Around 200K For Free.

  83. Vee N June 1, 2011

    Can’t wait to see Beyonce or Taylor Swift release their albums, they’ll be able to reach 1 million cd sales in a week without all the gimmicks. Whether it was Gaga’s choice or not, being proud of selling 1 million copies when maybe 1/2 of it was due to the 99 cents, isn’t something to me proud of imo.

  85. Yo June 1, 2011

    I wish some of you dumbass f****** people would learn to read!
    SHE DID NOT SELL HER ALBUM FOR 99CENTS
    AMAZON BOUGHT THE DIGITAL COPIES AT FULL PRICE AND RESOLD THEM AT THAT PRICE AMAZON LOST AFEW MILLION DOLLARS BUT THEY WERE TRYING TO OUT DO ITUNES AND POMOTE THEIR MUSIC SELECTIONS. THE DEAL WAS ONLY IN THE US. SHE STILL SOLD A S*** TON OF RECORDS WITHOUT THE DEAL IN THE US AND OVER SEAS>

  86. JUDAS666 June 1, 2011

    Big deal. She only did it with 99 cent sale. No huge feat. Whitney Houston sold over a mil back in 1992 with Bodyguard at full price, first cd of the soundscan era. Wow, even Gaga couldnt beat in 2011 at full price. Her album has like 3 good tracks, the rest are garbage!! FAIL. Watch 2nd week sales… be they drop off by 70-80%

    I don’t understand why Amazon would sell her album for .99 cents except that since it was digital it does not cost them any extra distribution fees, just adding a couple extra servers to handle the download capacity. That is a major accomplishment, but it would be interesting to see sales after the first week. I don’t think it is fair to compare Beyonce’s sales to hers because Beyonce’s album will not be shipped until the week of June 28th. Comparing this album to Beyonce’s previous albums is also pointless because Beyonce has always sold more than 2 million copies of each album. The Britny fans are also correct in saying that Britney still holds a record over Lady Gaga for biggest opening numbers, and that was with Britney’s CD being sold at full retail price.

  90. TonyOllin June 1, 2011

    Lady Gaga is the QUEEN! And you all will just DEAL WITH IT!

    Who cares if her album was available for 99 cents! The album still LEAKED IN FULL a whole WEEK before release and it’s STILL PUSHING NUMBERS! You guys need to stop hating and accept and tolerate! Go buy Born This Way! You’re faves could never and WILL never top this album… Not this year… not next year! Y’all just mad because Gaga is REIGNING SUPREME this ERA!

    Lady gaga >>>>>>> Beyonic

    run the flops is flopping again. Her fans feel so desperate now. They stopped making excuses. They simply don’t talk about that bad expericuence no more.

    The ripoff pon de floor officially flopped and beyonic better be ready to join the embassy of flopping.

  93. ROGER June 1, 2011

    GaGa would have only sold 500K without the 99 cent deal. That’s truly underwhelming, considering all the hype surrounding the album.

    If you add about 200K of those people who actually wanted to album and didn’t only buy it to get 20GB of free storage on amazon her total sales amount to about 700K.

    Basically, there is an overrated mess in every sense of the word.

  94. antonio June 1, 2011

    Because of the Cloud Nine service with Amazon, she sold another 400K, so even without it, she still would’ve sold 700K, which is still more than most artists and is a number most artists only dream of selling in the first week, especially in 2011. Born This Way is still going to be 2011’s best selling album with WW sales of over 10 million, and just F.Y.I., The Fame Monster is not Gaga’s best selling LP, because it’s not an LP, it’s an EP and it has sold 6 million WW, The Fame has sold 12.5 million WW and yes, Gaga is this generation’s Chart Queen, but anywho, just keep on grinding Gaga, you just got done headlining the 13th highest tour of all time, you just made $90 million last year and was voted the most powerful celebrity in the world by Forbes Magazine.

  95. Christian June 1, 2011

    @ FAMEKILLS – “Femme Fatale” has sold over 500,000 copies in the US. it’s already gold. And it will reach a million which is why Jive has certified it already.

    @QUEENSGAGA – okay if that was the case, Why is Britney’s name CONSTANTLY being mentioned if she’s not relevant? Now I bet if Britney was still performing like she used too years ago, she would not be getting all this backlash, etc And please don’t bring Britney’s delusional fans into this. Cuz EVERY artist has delusional fans. Just keep Britney’s name out yall minds. And what’s even funnier, probably majority of Gaga fans use to be Britney fans back in the day.

    But honestly I just come to this blog to laugh. I really do, oh and put some people in their place if I have too.

    But like i said time and time again, I have no reason to bash or dislike any artist personally. But I will speak my mind. If a Beyonce song suck I’ll say it, if I feel Gaga’s album is not album of the decade I’ll say it. If Britney continues with these stiff ass performance and ore-recorded interviews I won’t go to her tour. I have love for all the artists in some way or form.

  96. Ramsey June 1, 2011

    It’s a good download. I got it for 0.99 but that’s Amazon selling it for that much not Gaga’s record label. I like music and and really happy with the purchase. I don’t consider myself one of her little monsters, but I’m glad it’s doing well cuz it’s worth a listen.

  99. yoyo June 1, 2011

    wasn’t Born This Way leaked like a week before it’s release and it still sold 700K, but that’s a flop and underwhelming, I wonder if Beyonce will sell 700K without a deal on Amazon and a leaked album or if she will sell well over 1 million copies, I highly doubt it, because with every album she’s released, all her fans always say she can sell over 1 million but it never happens, so who really runs the world, obviously Lady Gaga.

    I’m honestly not suprised. So congrats to Lady Gimmick. As many stunts as she has pulled and as much attention as she gets this numbers aren’t surprising in the least bit. She has a major following of a bunch of weird ass people just like her, will buy anything she puts out. Can’t be mad when someone’s fans support them.

    I still think she is overrated & overhyped and she gets on my last f****** nerves, but congrats non the same. She is talented so she deserves her success, even though she does too much for my taste and her music does nothing for me.

  102. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 1, 2011

    @MUSIC LOVER, “I dont see no one talking about this album. No one talking about the material of the album its self. its about the numbers.”

    I’m not sure whether or not you are referring to “no one” as in the TGJ posters or “no one” in general. In terms of the former, of course “no one” is talking about the music–the stans are more interested in numbers, chart positions, how she “slayed Beyonce, Rihanna, et al…,” or how “your fav could never.”

    But in terms of the music, I really like the album. “Marry the Night,” “Government Hooker,” “Judas,” “Schiebe,” “Bloody Mary,” “Black Jesus-Amen Fashion,” “Bad Kids,” “Heavy Metal Lover,” and “Electric Chapel” are the songs I like on the album.

    If you want to read a great review of the album, go here:

    If it had not been discounted on Amazon, album sales would’ve matched the initial projections of $800,000.

  106. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 1, 2011

    @RAMSEY, yes! I, too, got my copy for $.99 & it is the BEST $.99 I have spent in a long time. I feel so lucky.

    People are acting as if ANYONE could sell their album at this rate and still do well…ummm, no.
    My FAVORITE artist could NEVER sell 300,000 copies or whatever Lady Gaga’s projected sales are supposed to be due to Amazon, because she is not Lady Gaga.

    Again, I think it was a brilliant marketing strategy on the part of Amazon. Gaga and fans of music benefit. Win Win.

    I was DEFIANTLY not calling Nsync “quality” by any means. IMO they were good but they never released “quality” music they did release some good songs. Justin released some quality jc kinda did but Nsync as a whole didn’t.

    But I was just saying that BTW was not up the quality of some of her other work. I’m not a fan of hers but I also don’t hate her but her older music shits on all of BTW. The singles off this album don’t come close to songs like Paparazzi and a couple other but i don’t know the names.

    Seriously who actually brought this album? I dont see no one talking about this album. No one talking about the material of the album its self. its about the numbers. One million this and one million that.

    But what about the material of the album. I think this album is over hyped and its lack luster. The material of the album does not match match the hype surrounded by the album.

    But regardless I think its very impressive to see gaga push one million copies the first week.. I mean anything less than that would have been a FLOP, considering all the promo and hype surrounding the album.

  131. NaQu June 1, 2011

    Her album was selling for 99cents. BSB, Nsync, Britney, Usher, Taylor Swift, Eminem all sold over a million CDs the first week at standard retail price. Gaga had to discount her s*** to the price of a candy bar, so I’m not impressed. This just proves how bogus she is.

  132. BitchIcantevenspellwelfare June 1, 2011

    @DA BIGGEST BOSS, i understand what you are saying. I did not like The Fame or The Fame Monster, except for “Dance in the Dark” and “So Happy I Could Die” (only recently), so for those who liked those albums, I understand.

    For me, “Born This Way” is much more sophisticated in every way than those albums, which is why I now appreciate her work. But I respect the fact that you like the “old” Gaga better.

    the beyonce stans, really shouldnt be talking smack about amazon selling it for 99c, since beyonce has to resort to re releasing her albums, at least 2 times to get big numbers.

    key words people, BACK IN THE DAY….do you know hpw hard it is to even sell over 500k ur first week? do you know how good your album have to be, and how talented you have to be to sell over 500k in this day and age..?

    But yeah, congrats. But who is surprised??? When I heard her record labeled shipped out 2 millions copies, I honestly thought she was abou
    t to break every record and sell 2 million copies in one week.
    She will definitely out sell every artist.
    I LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE BEYONCE, I think Bey is the best, she’s f****** GREAT, but she aint touching these numbers. Good job Gaga.

    Also, I think the reason why ppl are jumping up and down about the 1 million sold is because we all expected it. I mean I really doubt any of Gaga’s fan are truly surprised. Artists need to take a lesson on how to market their album from Gaga.

    Shes come a long way in such a short amount of time.

    Quality is better than quantity. It doesn’t matter how many she sells, the quality is still bad. There are some really bad quality songs that are within the top 10 on itunes and some really great songs at #50. The sales don’t really matter.

    SHE’S NOT THE FIRST ARTIST WHOSE ALBUM IS SOLD CHEAP AT AMAZON, YOU GUYS MAKING A WHOLE LOTTA NOISE OF THIS AMAZON ISH CAUSE YOU CARE A LOT MORE ABOUT YOUR FAV BEING UNDEFEATED ON STUPID RECORDS THAN DOING YOUR HOMEWORK OF SAYING YOUR MOMMA YOU LOVE HER IN MOTHER’S DAY.

    GAGA’S ALBUM IS DESERVING OF THIS AND MORE. HAD WE BEEN IN THE 90s OR EARLY 00s I’M 100% SURE THIS WOULD’VE SOLD 2 MILLION+ ON ITS FIRST WEEK.

    ANYWAY, ALL I CAN SAY IS… FLOP THIS WAY.

    GOD BLESS YOU GUYS! =)

    THE END.

    i think btw is a big evolution and improvement compared to tfm, which i don’t listen to that much like i used to since btw was released. but i also think that u either have to be open musically or really be into that kind of music, because it is “hardcore” dance, and i don’t see someone 100 per cent hiphop or rnb liking it. anyway, congrats Gaga, no matter what is being said, not everyone can pull off a million sales in one week these days!

  156. BEYowolf June 1, 2011

    Congrats although with Amazon selling it for 99 cent the first day it came out made it move 330,000… units…..their servers crashed and when the promotion was reinstated a couple days after it was expected to move an additional 150,000 units. I said all that to say this ……with close to half her sales being because of a 99 cent promotion ……did she really slay? I mean sure it looks good on paper….”GaGa sells 1.1 million first week” but if u digg into that you can’t help but see the trickery lol and can’t help but ask yourself if this album would have made the million mark (the first week) without this 99 cent promo. TAYLOR DID IT WITHOUT HAVING THAT PROMO DEAL LOL

  157. aisha June 1, 2011

    @beyowolf
    could anyone else have sold the same amount? Riri did the same w/ rated r and didn’t even sell half of that. so yes, she did slay, but you’re entitled to have your own opinion. take away the amazon sales, she still slayed, given that no other album that came out the same yr sold that much the first week (not that i know of).

  158. theman June 1, 2011

    Excellent, she worked her a** off, even if the album didn’t sale for 99 cents, she would have moved around 800k-900k, which is still hella great. What i find funny is people complain about artist promotion so much now, but when you finally get someone that has been spot on with it, and the best at it as of now people stay complain, don’t complain look at the way her label promoted her album as a guide. She has shown alot more artistic growth as well. Her sales still would have been huge irregardless of what.

    She’s been performing great, and everything has been spot on. Congrats to her.

  159. theman June 1, 2011

    Oh and the Best Buy thing was false, that was cleared up, and she had nothing to do with Amazon selling her album that low, they did that in order to promote their new service.

  160. theman June 1, 2011

    Lol she’s basically caught up to Rihanna and Katy Perry like it was nothing, Gaga sales albums folks, she isn’t a singles artists.

  161. fdgj June 1, 2011

    “Mocha & Milk” is a perfect matc h like “black & white” people

  162. Hudson Morrigan June 1, 2011

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES
    Gaga is shitting all over your faves and you are mad as hell 🙂
    Paws up!!

  163. Hudson Morrigan June 1, 2011

    The album is amazing! I listen to it 2 times a day almost every day since it came out!!!!

  164. D-Day June 1, 2011

    Say what you want thats good ass marketing. All her die hard fans (monsters) probably bought at least 5 or 6 hell maybe even 10 copies at .99 cents and then turned around and bought at least one original copy cuz well thats what die hards do. Then everybody else fell into place. Every artist could use the die hards. Trust me.

    This is the truth

  165. Jordan June 1, 2011

    The younger the fans are, the more they like GAGA lol. Sign of the times. *sigh*
    I miss the days of real artists and half the gimmicks. This album will have the greatest second week drop in sales of all time lol.

  166. Mari (RIP Dwayne McDuffie) June 1, 2011

    “All her die hard fans (monsters) probably bought at least 5 or 6 hell maybe even 10 copies at .99 cents and then turned around and bought at least one original copy cuz well thats what die hards do.”
    _______________________________________________________________________

    . . . which is why Gaga will never dodge the criticisms about how BTW wouldn’t have reached the 1M US debut week benchmark without 99 cent albums. BTW is not in the same league as Speak Now or The Carter 3. Loss leading always leads to increased sales, especially when an entire album costs less than the price of a single.

    However, congrats to Gaga for her #1 album and for legitimately crossing the 500K debut threshold! That’s awesome in this market climate!

  167. YOOSONDALOOSE June 1, 2011

    Well done Gaga, but I though it would do better. Great album though!

  168. Mileena June 1, 2011

    These site AGAIN got its facts wrong again:

    The Fame Monster was a EP not a album

    Born This Way is her 2nd Album

    This is almost as annoying as when TGJ said Gaga was performing at the BBA when she didn’t! Also: Congrats Gaga! How on earth is her next album going to beat those 1rst week numbers!

  169. NishyMJ June 1, 2011

    All of you idiots that keep talking about GaGas amazon sales are so sad, you are clinging on to that one thing to make yourselves feel better aren’t you?! A sale is a sale, if Rihannas album was 99 cents i still wouldnt buy it. Are you jealous that people want to buy GaGa music? aaaawwww

  170. bey’knight brutal June 1, 2011

    congrats to gaga and the monsters…the sane ones though 😀

  171. . June 1, 2011

    @theman
    She was never below Rihanna and katy! If anything they were always below her!

  172. The Naked Truth June 1, 2011

    *Paws Up*

  173. JohnVidal June 1, 2011

    So deserved and stunning numbers given the current market climate. And for those still talking about the .99 thing, you are all so pressed. Do u think Beyonce or Britney or whatever artist tou stan for is going to make this in the current market with or without some special prices? Be real and just love great music. Cos if Born This Way is something it is definitely a great album. I play it everyday. Only other album I can say the same is Adele´s. Gaga+Adele= Queens of 2011

  174. SHOCKED June 1, 2011

    what i find funny is people saying she promoted the album so much that it should sale this much…(news flash) if every artist promoted their albums like she did the industry wouldnt be in the dumps. i mean digital downloads and bootleggin has been a factor a number of years but ppl still sold albums because record labels actually let artist do promo…

  175. JohnVidal June 1, 2011

    @SHESDUMB 1.1 MILLION B******!!!!!KAN UR FAVE DO THAT?
    Can u understand why these people are so pressed? I mean, they are Britney, Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy… stans. Do they not know yet that Gaga is way more talented than all those girls? I mean, none of them can compare to the creativity and musical skills of MJ, Mariah, Janet, etc, sorry Beyonce doesn´t count. she is so inferior musical wise. The only huge superstar with great musical skills that performs and promotes and makes great music like those I mentioned did back in the day is Gaga. Can´t they see that´s exactly why the public was massively interested and purchased the album like crazy?
    I used to say Bad kids and Hair were the worst on the album, but now I seriously even love those 2 songs. One can´t get tired of listening

  176. Brad Garrett June 1, 2011

    why are people so damn salty towards Beyonce , o.k Gaga sold over a million congrats to her , but do you all really think Beyonce album will flop ?? no i don’t think so , she wont sell a million but i think she will sell between 300-500 k in its first week , that is not bad at all . Gaga has damn good people behind her and that is whats up, but this album was not her best at all , Fame Monster was her best to me , born this way seems overrated and I’m not trying to take anything away from her because she is talented , i just can’t get with these songs off that album.

  177. Gabs June 1, 2011

    Go Gaga! The Amazon deal wasn’t Gaga’s doing but like her manager said its good that people bought it legally even if it was 99 cents for one day. Without amazon she still would’ve had around 800k. I read on billboard that sales have gone down 65% since britneys oops because of the economy and illegal downloading so this is really impressive. We all know her shows sell out too so gaga has secured longevity. Its well deserved. I loved the album. Bloody mary, Marry the night, and Highway unicorn are my faves but its a really great party album or dance around in my room album just like fame monster was. She didnt dissapoint me other than the title song “born this way”. Ironic how the only song I hate is the one she named the album after. Such a bad single choice. The rest are great.

  178. yesmam June 1, 2011

    LMAO at the hate!!! Just congratulate and support your artists when their album comes out lol Hating on Gaga at this point just makes u look really dumb,,for real!!

  179. Ariana June 1, 2011

    Happy for her & her PR team. They work so damn hard! 😀

    BTW is a solid pop album and she deserves all the success is having. You can hate on Gaga all you want but you can’t deny how talented she is.
    Some of you need to chill out, stop being so pressed.

  180. mobwife June 1, 2011

    This is complete and total BULLSH**!

    Are you kidding me? What are we celebrating again?

    Oh yeah the fact that she:

    1) Sold BTW for $0.99 twice on Monday and then again on Thursday of last week.

    2) Engaged in another sham to manipulate the Billboard Charts by allowing Best Buy to use her CD as a promotional in which one iPHONE sell counted as 2 CD sells!

    Well Lady Gaga you did it girl you got a million dollar 1st week CD sell! HIP HIP HOORAY…. BOOOOOOOO! 🙁

    *press play on Adele’s ’21’ followed by Chris Brown’s ‘F.A.M.E.’ while waiting on Beyonce’s ‘4’!

  181. mobwife June 1, 2011

    It’s funny how her fans/stans call ppl who question what has occured haters…..really?
    2 for 1 sells at Best Buy and $0.99 2 day Amazon.com sells makes US HATERS? WOW.. I guess I’m a hater. Gaga receives nothing but positive press. She has had one of the most eleborate and well crafted marketing schemes (up until the Best Buy / Amazon.com scams) I’ve seen in yrs. She should have just continued. We all knew she would sell and sell well.

    Oh and lets all congratulate her in advance! She will automatically receive the Best Female Artist Award at this yrs VH1, MTV, AMA, Grammy’s, Brit Awards blah, blah, blah awards.! Good for her!! I’m pretty sure the 2012 Billboard Awards are hers too!! Perhaps she will receive the Millenium Award!

    *Oh well……press play on Adele’s ‘21′ followed by Chris Brown’s ‘F.A.M.E.’ while waiting on Beyonce’s ‘4′!

  182. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN June 1, 2011

    330, 000 copies of her 1.1 million were sold for less then the price of a single.. so its not really a million selling album, whatever you say… Taylor and all the others who have sold a million plus sold at full price.

    If Rebecca blacks new album was priced at 99 cent.. she’d top the album chart im sure.. but at full price… no way

    Maybe your fave should have done a similar promo so she could have sold more than the miserable 300,000 copies she sold TOTAL.

    CHEAP things sell better…

    Now 1.1 million people have something to put their CUPS ON…

  204. 16 Inches of my own hair June 2, 2011

    You kno Gaga got some problems on her real talk… But she came into her own adn i appluad that… 1 million sold in the first week is ridiculous get it Mamas… S/N Its funny how white people can support the people they love in ther industry but black people cant… Not dont get it twisted i buy CD’s i dont burn them unless there mixes but i like to support my peoples when it comes to music and its just sad too see that black people dont support there favorite artist like white people do… Man we are indeed the reason we cant get ahead… Once again im glad for Gaga even tho shes crazy jus a little bit…

  205. 16 Inches of my own hair June 2, 2011

    Now i applaud Gaga for her success abd her pack of little monsters running around… But the quality that was in Gagas very first CD is missing in her current work sorry but true… A major portion of Gagas success comes from peoples fascination with her weird antics and her “what is she gonna do next” behavioral patterns… People are intrested by Gagas appearance and the fact that she will do just about anything for attention… I mean i applaud anyone selling a millions albums in the first week but i cant give you as much credit as others… when you CD cost the same as a 20oz bottle of Sprite i really cant say too much… $0.99 is ridicualous and with that being said if the CD was only $0.99 she should have sold more… Lil wayne sold a million in his first week of the Carter 3 and those were $9.99 a pop… Jus sayin… *drinks sprite… ahhh refreshing… *
