Lady GaGa & Lana Del Rey Take ‘Interscope’ To iTunes Italia

Published: Sunday 29th Dec 2013 by David


Before they kick off the campaign put in place for Azealia Banks‘ ‘Broke With Expensive Taste’, Interscope finds a friend in iTunes Italy today, with two of its banner acts enjoying commendable success on the European tally.

Details below…


As reports of a Christina Aguilera-assisted remix heat up, Lady GaGa‘s ‘Do What U Want’ sits pretty at #25 on iTunes Italy tonight, doing so as sales of its supporting album ‘ARTPOP’ wink at worldwide sales of 1 million units!

Pretty awesome, considering the project does so with the benefit of only one supporting music video and without the aid of a US #1 single…a chart position no GaGa era- except her latest- has gone without.

Seven spots above comes Lana Del Rey‘s ‘Summertime Sadness.’ Well, the Cedric Vergais remix of the Pop stunner, perched one spot above Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’, two spots above Ellie Goulding‘s ‘Burn‘ and 42 places above its original version, now occupying #60.

On higher ground, Eminem and Rihanna‘s ‘Monster‘ hit finds itself placed at #5 while Beyonce‘s self-titled new album holds court at #2 on iTunes France, as its global sales shimmy and shake towards the 2 million milestone!

#NowPlaying: Mariah Carey – ‘Honey’…

    Lana >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>That Reductive chick.

  2. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) December 29, 2013

    Yes for the Mariah Carey video Sam. lol, my 4th favourite track from the Butterfly album

    Gaga >>>>>>>>>>> That Intoxicated mess.

  3. BEYONCÉ December 29, 2013

    I’ll take Lana over Gaga’s cheap “art” and Mariah’s juvenile jingles with no vocals anyday.

    Gaga >>>>>>>>>>> That Intoxicated mess

    The ironic, didn’t Gaga was on rehab, oh i forget it was a surgery, sorry.

  5. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 29, 2013

    I like both Lana and Gaga,so congrats to both

  6. Navy Commander December 29, 2013

    I see Sam trying to bring basically every stanbase on TGJ into a Stan war.

    And how do you compare the monster to Beyonce when one is an album and one is a single?

  7. Navy Commander December 29, 2013

    Now playing: Rihanna – Get it Over With

  8. Molly December 29, 2013

    I do enjoy Lana sometimes, Lanas art seems more authentic then Gagas cheap tricks.

    Do What You Want is struggling to stay in the top 40 on the US iTunes. Only thing keeping it from tanking down Billboard is that payola deal Gags has. Not even The Voice, which is responsible for Blurred Lines, Say Something, and Counting Stars blowing up could save Do What You Want. At this point, Gags’ stats do the dragging for me. But Sam you forgot to mention the slayage Roar did in Australia

    Slaying. It’s not even summer anymore, lol.
    Sam should also post next week when Lana spends her 100th week on the Billboard 200. Or better yet, if it hits the two year mark next month. Not bad for her least supportive market.

  11. meena December 29, 2013

    Queen lana, BTD is still in the top 100 albums selling.

  12. Brazilian yoncé!!! December 29, 2013

    Born This Way (Album) > Every Lady Gaga album.

    People should really ignore that mariah carey stan… Its insecure and probably fat

    Pop Royalty is African right? So he really needs to beyhave.

  13. Brazilian yoncé!!! December 29, 2013

    Lambs Vs Beyhive

    Saddens me when Mariah genuinely loves Beyoncé… They are even friends. Beyoncé loves her and even respects her a lot. Even on American Idol Mariah was being really nice when people sang Beyoncé it showed that she loves her.
    It saddens me to see they fans fighting.
    Mariah is a legend Beyoncé is a nobody and a Flop why are you so bothered by her?
    I stanned for a legend I wouldn’t be bothered by Beyoncé and spend all my time and energy talking about how she flops etc.. I expect that from Rihanna Stans. Even Ciara stans “Molly etc” are NOT THIS INSECURE ABOUT THEY FAVE :\

  14. Lana Del Bey December 29, 2013

    Lana Del Slayyyyyyyyy! – ULTRAVOILENCE 2014

  15. Lana Del Bey December 29, 2013

    Slayriah please exit the comment section

  16. CARMEN December 29, 2013

    and BTD is still selling strong worldwide 😀 slay Lana!

  17. Common Sense December 30, 2013

    Mariah=Vocal Goddess

    Beyonce > Current Gen of Pop girls

    Lana > Desperate Gaga

  18. JOHNVIDAL December 30, 2013

    I actually agree with some comment in this post: I also like both Lana and Gaga and I also think Born This Way (the album) is Gaga´s best to date.
    Anyway, this post was really absurd. Why report about 3 random positions on itunes Italy? And then one from France? lol

  19. Dim December 30, 2013

    Seriously? A whole news article for Lady Gaga sitting on number 25 in itunes Italy, where she probably needed 150 copies to do so? And presenting that as an achievement?I also like Gaga and ARTPOP, but, man, get a life or start writing objective articles. Jesus!

  20. Dim December 30, 2013

    I love them as well, but congrats for what?? Being nnumber 25 on itunes italy???

  21. Dan December 31, 2013

    You’re an ugly w****. Gaga is “The Worlds Most Famous Celebrity” -Guiness World Records. SO think before you speak and KNOW the true facts before you do anything. xo
