Chart Check [Hot 100]: Lady Gaga’s ‘Perfect Illusion’ Plummets

Published: Wednesday 12th Oct 2016 by Rashad

If the chart performance of ‘Perfect Illusion’ is any indication, Lady Gaga‘s fifth album, ‘Joanne,’ has much to worry about.

The song – used to kick off the singer/songwriter’s official fifth era – made a moderate #15 debut, a feat (many argued) was due to the absence of a music video to support it.  Once the video did make its premiere to mixed critical review, it seemed to have the reverse intended effect.  The song dropped out of the top 40 its second week then out of the top 50 its second week.

Now, much to the chagrin of her devoted #LittleMonsters, the tune has plummeted even further down charts…

    What is she doing? There’s no coming BACK after this one. Everyone has moved on.

    • Kate October 13, 2016

      So no Beyonce in the Top 10?
      Sad sad career honeyy.

      • Kris October 13, 2016

        Girl, take your broke ass back to bed with them dud ass facts.

    • BEY>RIH October 12, 2016

      Where you been bítch ?

      • Danzou October 12, 2016

        He’s been hiding that ugly mug.

      • Mark111 October 12, 2016

        Me? Hiding? Never. I been on twitter. ?

        The end is near. ?

    • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler October 13, 2016

      Lol When did you get out ?

    • Rima October 13, 2016

      Where the hell is “p*** on the brain” on the charts?

      • CommonSense October 13, 2016

        Lol at the high level of expectations set by the queen of the charts-Rihanna. Apparently she’s the only artist whose entire single releases from her album are expected to be top 10 or top 5 on the charts. She already slayed 3/4 if the year so LOTB doesn’t even have to chart high yet I predict it will chart higher than beylowthecharts music.

  3. Truthsayer the Deplorable October 12, 2016

    This was her chance to show these pop girls who the real queen was. But it was all a perfect illusion folks. And from the album snippets I’ve heard, sounds like she’s got an even bigger dud on her hands. It seems Troy Carter left with all her talent, cos right now, she’s lost and no one has time to wait for her to be found.

    PREDICTION: After Joanne flops, she will change her name to Stefani and claim Lady Gaga is now an old act that she doesn’t feel connected to.

  4. Stephy October 12, 2016

    The hell with this flop… Gaga is talented and she’ll be fine without chart success. Now, where is the post that Michael Jackson made more money in one year than any musical artist has ever made in their entire careers?

    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

      Sorry for Elvis but Michael is simply the biggest phenomenon in pop music history (that´s why it is so laughable when a few people believe that a couple of streaming achievements nowadays rival Michael´s and the likes success). I can only conceive The Beatles as a similar or bigger force. I agree about Gaga btw.

  5. Jay October 12, 2016

    I actually feel bad 🙁 .. her time is up .. she had her run! she shouldve show cased her voice before she came with the gimmicks trying to fit in at the time! Welp they come and go! Maybe she can focus do good in Broadway!

    • Kris October 13, 2016

      You’re absolutely wrong. Lady Gaga was not trying to fit in… everyone was trying to fit in with her…. the late 2000ks beginning half of the 2010ks was alll Lady Gaga influenced. The infancy of Nicki Minaj’s commercial career was blueprinted after Gaga…. especially into album #2. When Gaga surfaced everyone bit… EVERYBODY! I will never forget the days Gaga was a phenom.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

        Exactly. Wheteher a few like it or not, she was the one bringing something new. Another fact is that she brought the big excitement for music videos back around 2009-2011 in a way we hadn´t seen since the 80s and 90s. She peaked so quick and early, but that doesn´t take anything away from her, and it´s obvious she´s onto having a long quality career judging by the route she´s taking. Commercially no, but her talent prevails and keeps being booked.

  6. Kwinzy October 12, 2016

    Muva Monsta fell harder than Lucifer from heaven to hell. ?

    • Danzou October 12, 2016

      If you believe in heaven and hell then prepare yourself cuz there’s only one place you’re going if you keep sucking beef.

      • Cali October 13, 2016

        You’re forever talking about someone sucking beef, you closed sensitive b**** ass f**. All the while stanning for flops.

        Now watch your punk ass assume that i’m white, with your brown betty ass ?

      • Kwinzy October 13, 2016

        I’m not surprised wide receivers like Danzou has “so much room” to talk sh!t.?

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        Lol its so easy to get yall upset. Who is this random cali account? I don’t know her.

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        @kwinzy I’m just saying. IF that’s what you believe in then well I’d suggest you prepare yourself h**. Kills me I swear.

      • Cali October 13, 2016

        @ “I don’t know her”..spoken like a true closeted f**. Come on out sissy ?

      • Kwinzy October 13, 2016

        You’re in no position to decipher where I’m going in the afterlife, cun+. Focus on more important things like bathing yourself every day and removing the dirt from behind your ears. Them dust mites must be having a ball eating all that dead skin off your feet, too. Tragic.?

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        @cali you’re trying so hard. I don’t f*** men. Never have never will. Lol but if that’s you go ahead.

      • Cali October 13, 2016

        ? Sure f.a.g.

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        Are u mad h**?

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        No but evidently I upset you since you commented on MY reply section and you haven’t shut up since. We can do this all day.

      • Cali October 13, 2016

        ? Of course you can do this all day, you’re on here from Sunrise to sunset, you bum ass f**.

        Go take a shower you sissy ??

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        Yet you’re on here just as much as I am if you got the time to argue with me. You’re mad because I mentioned going to hell for being gay and now you obviously are gagging. Hahaha hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa haha hahahahah hahahahah

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        I have never seen the name “cali” before now so you made an account JUST to bother me hahaha hahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa you need a job. This ain’t cutting it.

      • Cali October 13, 2016

        ? F^g please. Unfortunately Miss J, I have to go, because unlike you, I can’t sit on the internet 24/7, I have a life, and constructive things to attend to.

        Good luck with the coming out party, sissy ?

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        Now all of a sudden you have a life and better things to do when you’re getting scalped. If you had so much to do you wouldn’t be here trying to out smart me in the first place.

  7. DC3 FOREVER October 12, 2016

    Sorry Gaga. I really was rooting for you this go around. Was hoping you got the hint that you needed to go back to FAME MONSTER look and sound to get back on top. But you took the “Yoü & I” route and left the fun behind. Hope this album is good.

    • Truthsayer the Deplorable October 13, 2016

      You and I was a jam though. If she actually released something hot, she’d have gotten a #1 easy. Right now, the pop artists are boring and weak af, and ppl were waiting for something exciting. However, Perfect Illusion is her worst lead single yet, and perhaps, even her worst single ever. Sad.

  8. Danzou October 12, 2016

    The fame monster as well as born this way were really great albums. Honestly the gimmicks were fine because musically she was bringing it. But the music just has been trash. I will say this though perfect illusion is not bad I like it.

    • DC3 FOREVER October 13, 2016

      I agree 100% with you and I even like Million Reasons too but I’m not in love with them like I have been with her previous work

    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

      LOL So you even like it (well except for you contradicting yourself in the same sentence with that “music just has been trash” while at the same time saying you liked Perfect Illusion) but you still have been hating on her nonstop for the last couple of months? You definitely should reconsider your whole way of thinking cause it doesn´t make sense. You are supposed to support things you like if anything. Also you could use some reality checks and stop being a homophobic idiot. Just makes you look absolutely ignorant all around.

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        John shut up.

  9. HailLegendBeysus October 12, 2016


    • Rima October 13, 2016

      Laughing at hold up being #82 right now. Tragic

    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

      You are definitely one of those who are not here (or anywhere) for the music. Thankfully there are many Beyonce fans in this blog who are not like you.

      • Danzou October 13, 2016

        John shut UP. Damn yo old ass is bothering everybody that don’t agree with yo irritating ass.

  10. Anonymously October 12, 2016

    She shudve included some urban appeal man smh even Adele knew that…hell even Taylor knew to include urban appeal….soul or rnb or trap or Caribbean Sumn…even bieber knew lol

  11. Jay Jay October 13, 2016

    I feel bad for her…I love Gaga but she definitely lost her spark.

    The NFL should reconsider a different act for the Super Bowl

  12. Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler October 13, 2016

    Damn. That was quick. Better luck next year Little Mobsters. With y’all annoying asses.

    • Rima October 13, 2016

      Hold up is doing worse on the charts tho.

      • Amerikkka’s Most Wanted ~ Tyler October 13, 2016

        Hold up peaked higher than this b******* . Stay mad h**

  13. Mother October 13, 2016

    Another one bites the dust ??

  14. Jake October 13, 2016

    Such a shame , I was really rooting for her on this one , I really liked ArtPop but I really felt how people lost interest and so far the 2 songs I’ve heard from the new album don’t do it at all for me , like AT ALL! She’s gonna flop harder then Britney .
    And tbh I don’t want to see her at the Bowl , I wanted JLO !

  15. Weezy Tha Goat/ Zayn is ? October 13, 2016

    I think it’s safe to say that the GP is over her. Oh well, maybe her super bowl performance will help. I think it would be smart for Interscope to push the Album back.

    • Rima October 13, 2016

      They’ve been over the animal you represent.

  16. FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 13, 2016

    I thought it was easy nowadays to hava a number #1 because of the music video, and streams…welllllll

  17. FASHION_ICON ~ Anti&Lemonade October 13, 2016

    Isn’t Gaga who were supposed to go on Mars or somewhere in the space to perform ? What happenned ? Lol

  18. Rima October 13, 2016

    Funny how you guys don’t show hold ups chart position. Bias trash site.

  19. Rima October 13, 2016

    GaGa doesn’t need a hit to be relevant you dumb f****!

    Omfg you idiots are annoying these stan bases really can choke navy,hive,lambs,lana fans and others.

  20. Rima October 13, 2016

    GaGa is a worldwide icon who is changing the landscape of pop.

    You guys will be silent when she gives the best Superbowl performance ever seen.


  21. JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

    Nothing new. Are you guys going to report about this single´s chart position every week? Not necessary. We already know how it will do. Reminds me of when they stalked Mariah Carey´s last album sales on a DAILY basis during the whole first week. Like seriously 🙂 (funnily enough they never do it with Beyonce singles, no shade).
    Anyway, we know Gaga is not going to top the Hot 100 anytime soon (or ever again). From what we know about the album she´s definitely not going for that. Many people have moved on but so has she. Million Reasons is an amazing song with real vocals. She´ll keep having recognition regardless of commercial success.

  22. ROCK October 13, 2016

    These musicians keep flopping cod they believe too much in their own need someone to pick out singles for you.that’s why Beyonce has been flopping since 2011.

  23. Music103 October 13, 2016

    The comeback is NOT looking good. Both songs are not doing well on radio or iTunes as comeback music should and the album snippet sounded similar. Good luck Gag’s I used to love you 2008-2010.

  24. Danny Bey October 13, 2016

    That’s what happens when you try to use all your gimmicks your first 2 albums. Should’ve let her talent speak for itself from the beginning.

  25. FC/JC October 13, 2016

    I was so ready to stand behind her, I thoroughly enjoyed myself at her ArtRave tour for ArtPOP, and anticipated her next pop solo album…. However its been disappointment after disappointment.

  26. *ICON* October 13, 2016

    This is a gargantuan FLOP. She better deem it a buzz single and move on to the next!

  27. caribbean native October 13, 2016

    LOL im sorry for laughing because i like her but gag….sis?

  28. King B October 13, 2016

    DO NOT COMPARE BEYONCÉ TO GAGA. BEYONCÉ is fine with her so called flop singles that went GOLD/PLATINUM. She’s NEARLY 20 YEARS in the game and still can sell 1mil++ while her peers and even the current artist struggle to sell a mil (Rih and Britney).

    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

      Beyonce is more than fine obviously. It doesn´t even matter anyway since the important thing is talent.

  29. King B October 13, 2016

    Funny how few years ago we have single artist like Kesha, Gaga, Katy etc and fast forward later Meghan, Selena, Demi, Ariana. Singles artist are REPLACEABLE but album artists are not. *plays IRREPLACEABLE*

    • Datredd23 October 13, 2016

      Rihanna has outlasted them all as well honey and you guys call her a singles artist lol

    • JOHNVIDAL October 13, 2016

      Gaga was not a singles artist. She was having as much success with album slaes as with singles. In fact, hasn´t The Fame sold more units than any Beyonce album ever? A different story is that she is not having commercial success anymore. But when she has it, she isn´t a singles artists. Same as Beyonce. Both beyonce or Gaga would have sold like crazy (albums) with a long running #1 hit in the hot 100 (unlike others). They are not singles artists.

  30. Datredd23 October 13, 2016

    I see Rih still in the upper echelon of the chart as always lol Needed Me moved up 2 spots while Gagas month old first single plummeted that fast ? I remember when everyone was trying to shade Rih when FFS didn’t reach number one calling it a major flop etc etc and even BBHMM slayed this floppage

    • Rima October 13, 2016

      Navy always make it about their tragic fav stfu

      • Datredd23 October 13, 2016

        Are you mad?! Lol I just find most commenters hypocritical on here

  31. No favs, just here for the music October 13, 2016

    No surprise there the song sucks

  32. fresj October 13, 2016

    “she’s changing the landscape of pop music”
    Girl,what? That’s probably one of the most delusional statements period!

  33. #JACKIE October 13, 2016

    OMG poor Gags!!! Hopefully the SB will do her some good. I see the GÅYvy is seething per usual……..

  34. gina October 13, 2016

    I think the beyonce fans need to stay out of this conversation until she can make an appearance on the Hot 100.

    • Memo October 13, 2016

      And the Ciara fans too until she can make the Top 10, LOL.

  35. LOL October 13, 2016
