Lady Gaga Hits #1 On iTunes With ‘Million Reasons’

Published: Friday 28th Oct 2016 by Sam

Lady Gaga is #1. Not just on the iTunes album tally, but on the single count too.

Dive below for details…

As reported, Carpool Karaoke helped ‘Joanne’ jam ‘Million Reasons’ drive to the upper echelon of the US retailer.

Now, the haunting ballad has blazed its way past the likes of Drake and The Chainsmokers to clench the top spot.

Echoing earlier sentiments, the song’s re-fuelling suggests Gaga may have scored the elusive hit the LP’s campaign has been waiting for.

For, it’s not the trigger-buy that so many new songs enjoy because it’s been out for several weeks. Rather, it’s clear the exposure of ‘Carpool’ has been a blessing from above.

Elsewhere on the tally, Gaga occupies two other placements in the top 20; ‘A-YO’ sits at #13, while lead single ‘Perfect Illusion’ is at #20.

Congrats are definitely in order. It will be interesting, though, to see which way radio flows. Will Gaga garner the support that will allow ‘Million’ to blow up on the airwaves? Will its streams follow the same upward trajectory? Both questions are important given the various variables that help decide placements on the Hot 100.

For now, however, slay Gaga!

    She’s buying her own music the way the camel buys sluttyonces Grammys and albums?

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 October 28, 2016

      You have no proof, money trail, or actual receipts that Jay-z buys Beyonce’s albums. If you do please post them. People actually BUY Beyonce’s albums… All 6 of them that went #1 and multi platinum the old fashion way (without relying on streams and discounts).

      However we do have proof, money trails, and receipts that Rihanna had Jay-a call in a favor so Samsung could buy her album “Anti”. How Rihanna “Anti Tour” box office tour doing?

      • Ally October 28, 2016

        You’re so stupid dude, you’re so quick to “drag” without realizing that this whole comment section is filled with troll accounts created by one sad person looking to start a Stan war

    • You know who I am October 28, 2016

      Seriously Dude,

      why is the Navy always messing with the Beyhive? Like seriously. Have you watched the VMAs? Have you seen the performances of both – Rihanna AND Beyoncé? Those are two women in two completely separate worlds. And I’m not saying that one is better than the other. But Both have extremely good publicists, teams and campaigns. Both have really good shows – but Rihanna is not Beyoncé. Beyoncé is not Rihanna. Beyoncé can sing Rihanna under the table – and that’s nothing that Rihanna or her fans have to be ashamed about. Beyoncés voice and vocal range is a blessing, not a talent. Other than that, both artists are talented. Both are really good dancers. Both have really good tunes. Why is the Beyhive and the Navy always messing with each other? Why can’t they accept, that they don’t even want to be compared?! I BET, BOTH WOULD EVEN COLLAB if it wasn’t for you guys comparing them w/ each other again. It’s just so annoying because I LOVE the Grape Juice but these comments never turn out good. They only show the ugly sides within you. Keep on going, I can’t change it anyway. But it’s SAD. And what is also sad is that the Grape Juice isn’t even considering to change this attitude here. Y’all seem to be so intelligent and y’all seem to know everything about everyone, how about having a conversation w/ each other that goes beyond shading?!

    • DC3 FOREVER October 28, 2016

      Or just. Like the way Samsung bought Anti to help it reach platinum status because without it it would still be at 460 units sold?

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        Keep using this staleless shade all u want when she got a 25 million dollar check I don’t think she’s bothered but Gaga she’s a rat she reeks of desperation lol

      • Cupid October 28, 2016

        The way you all talk you’d think Rihanna hasn’t sold millions of albums already. Anti still sold 1.4+ million copies WW without the Samsung deal

  2. P**** October 28, 2016

    She’s a has been like Mariah Carey who can’t keep a man longer than the first track on her boring album

  3. Kiah October 28, 2016

    It’s so easy to top the iTunes chart but will she top billboard?☕️

    • yourlocaldirtyhippie October 28, 2016

      She did ?

  4. Molly October 28, 2016

    Who? I don’t use her

  5. BeyHive Millitant October 28, 2016

    Joanne already dropped three spots to 4 so much for her comeback

  6. Katy Cat October 28, 2016

    She’s going to debut at 1 then Fall out the top 10 the next week

  7. Mad-on-her October 28, 2016

    Gaga has everyone mad!

  8. Hmmm ok girl October 28, 2016

    It’s #1 because it’s 69 cent, but congrats Gaga.

  9. Tommy Strawn, Glad I’m off today October 28, 2016

    The album already fell from #1 and her songs have been discounted. Shes desperate right now. I see no longevity.

  10. JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

    I knew somehow this had to end working. She´s too talented. It´s so pleasant seeing the people that thought she was going to do less than 100k first week just for the ske of hating and eny true talent having to resort to ridiculous arguments or just disappearing (or this desperate troll working over time under different names saying teh same illogical things). Do you guys think @Rosie is ok? 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

      She’s not that talented babe lol

      • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

        Hmm… but she is hun. She is more talented than her maintream peers by a mile. She´s no Prince musically or Whitney vocally if that was your point. I´m sane, unlike you. But so aren´t your faves whoever they are.

    • Paulo October 28, 2016

      probably tapping her boots and beating around with Joanne on repeat in hiding so no one sees her stanning the eff out hahahaha

      • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

        LOL Yas! She´s missing these days. How convenient. Deep inside I know that bish loves Lady Gaga and listens to her music. It´s obvious by the type of things she/he likes. Somehow she/he is blinded by hate for some reason but he/she´s a fan.

    • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

      Shes mediocre at best and the only people checking for her live are her crazed deluded fans which are getting more and more scarce by the year btw kii

      • JOHNVIDAL October 29, 2016

        People seem to disagree with you. Everytime she performs she gets a REAL standing ovation. Who do you stan for while making these comments? Rihanna? LMAO

  11. IStan4Rihanna. October 28, 2016

    A discounted song receiving massive promo topping iTunes, and it’s already getting red updates.


    It’s incredibly easy top the ITunes chart today, however the key is stability when it comes to remaining on top.

    #44 Taiwan (+19)
    #54 Hungary (+39)

    • Messy October 28, 2016

      I see the song has jumped a lot of spots all over the country if that’s bad then I’d like to know what good is

    • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

      Boy stop it or at this rate you are going to look as desperate as that thing called IspeakTruth which thinks Rihanna is bigger than Madonna and has the stage presence of Janis Joplin. Stop the essays following every single chart move a person you don´t seem to like. Music and talent are not charts. That said, Gaga is doing so much better than what you thought, and it seems like it´s bothering you a little bit 🙂

      • IStan4Rihanna. October 28, 2016

        1. This is a public blog where anybody is free to comment on what they like, irrespective of the word count, thus I will continue tune to do as such especially if it’s in context with the said post and in this case it is.


        2. How ironic is it that you’re telling me to “move along” and stop discussing somebody I dislike yet you do the very same to ‘Rihanna’ and several more.


        3. I am not “bothered” by Lady Gaga at all. I simply a) see through her pretentious facade and b) am finding it both comical and enjoyable to watch the severe arrogance of these ‘Little Monsters’ still linger in every way possible as they continue to disregard, degrade and denounce every other female singers alive even though their fave is on a blatant decline.


        That is all.



      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        Read it !!! Yasss @ ISTAN!

      • HailLegendBeysus October 28, 2016

        @IStan Grandpa is such a hypocrite telling everyone to stop commenting on people they dislike or stop hating. When he has an obsession over Rihanna and always leaves negative comments and spews hate toward most of todays young artists!

      • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

        LOL Funny cause you hate on every young artist that is not Beyonce 🙂 I just support talented ones, whether they are young or old, including Beyonce. I don´t think it is something you can comprehend. You live through this type of fighting and “drags” behaviour. Not my case. When I talk about Rihanna it is deserved, she cannot sing. But I never stalk her every chart move. I don´t even know where these people get all this chart info with percentages and all from artists they don´t like as if their lives depended on it and especially when it often is not the topic (one has to change subject when their faves are talentless I guess). What a way to waste one´s time. It´s called hate.

      • HailLegendBeysus October 28, 2016

        @Grandpa, lying is a sin. Receipts of all these new artist I hate on please?
        I can’t with you deflection of acting like you “defend” talent when we all know your just as much a hater as any commenter here that shades. Stop putting yourself on some pedestal like you ain’t shading Rihanna 24/7 whether your awake or asleep!

      • JOHNVIDAL October 29, 2016

        Boy you hate on other artists as much as I “supposedly” do. Have some decency and at leats admit what you have been doing with Gaga for two months. And well, don´t you hate on Rihanna? It´s time to stop. Time to behave like some of your fellow but sane Beyonce fans.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

      Which monsters? Seriously. It´s not anybodys fault Rihanna lacks everything regarding talent if that´s what you mean. I thought u were better than that other Rihanna stan in this blog (the one who thinks Rihanna is like Janis Joplin and a true rock star and more successful than madonna LOL) who I have mistaken you with sometimes (sorry for that). But I´m starting to think you´re not.

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        Once again your opinion on if Rihanna has talent or not is your opinion but you wanna try to cover up your hatred for her by that lame excuse? There are many videos of Rihanna singing very good and being a showmanship onstage wether it’s a pop routine a ballad or just being a carefree rockstar whether u admit it or not the bish demands the audience and stage! But act Like Gaga is at the top of the pedestal or something but I’m here to burst your bubble she is not!! Her lyrics are not that great and her dancing is very simple she can carry a tune but her voice and style is not for everyone!

      • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

        Showmanship? Like when she was totally eclipsed once again by Beyonce last month depite performing several times that night? Or are you talking about how Rihanna moves her hands once ain a while in an attempt to make it seem she is singing like Whitney Houston or something? I don´t act like Gaga is at the top of anything. She just happens to be one of the few true talents in mainstream. Just that. So mine is just an opinion but everthing you think or say are facts? Please!!! This is like if you were saying michael Jackson is not good and Villi Vanilli or whatever their name was were good. Yes it would be your opinion but that just cannot be true. Opinions can only go that far 🙂

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        Don’t use Beyoncé to pit against Rih hun when you constantly shade her too! This is about Gaga lol!! Gaga needs an over the top production or gimmick to get everyone talking no one is interested in her fake pretentious county jingle music and you know it. The GP is here for Rih I can’t say the same for Gags and there have been many occasions where Rih has gave a great performance Or sung a ballad amazingly check out Stay Concert of Valor

      • JOHNVIDAL October 29, 2016

        Again you´re wrong. I always defend Beyonce if I have too. Especially against delusional Rihanna fans. beyonce obviously murders her. I´m not a crazy stan like many of you. I don´t bandwagon. I defend talent when it´s needed.

  12. Paulo October 28, 2016

    wooo! huge props, GaGa! I think if there is any time for Million Reasons to do well on airplay it’s the holidays so I hope she’s ready to work extra on Xmas season.

  13. Paulo October 28, 2016

    LMAO I caaaan’t @ the haters and naysayers pulling out essays and excuses. of course it’s no longer #1 on iTunes, other albums got released today. if it’s easy to top the iTunes songs chart then how come not all acts get to do it? just EAT IT! Joanne already done way more than what you thought it would

    • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

      Rihanna was on top for majority of the year so the Navy is unbothered but the little monsters have been trying it lately! They are most vile and disgusting fans out here no wonder why the represent the witch they Stan for !

      • Paulo October 28, 2016

        Rihanna got nothing to do with the fact you were rooting for this album to fail and it’s doing well. don’t hide your flopped out nastyness behind your fav, b****. EAT IT

  14. RihUp October 28, 2016

    Just like Beyoncé she will never see a #1 and stay there for nine weeks?

    • RihUp October 28, 2016

      ? B**** you tried it. Let me guess, I dragged your punk ass once upon a time.

  15. Mariah Carey October 28, 2016

    Gaga dahhling! Let’s have some splashes to celebrate!

  16. Mark111 October 28, 2016

    ITunes chart means nothing, Perfect Delusion was #1 and look at that only peaked at #15 and fell off the chart on week 4 or 3. The Monsters and other stans cling to iTunes to make them seem like they killing it, but Billboard always humble them the following week. ?

  17. Mase October 28, 2016

    Mad , mad and more mad. Deal with her winning

  18. LOL October 28, 2016



  19. Datredd23 October 28, 2016

    I mean I didn’t even see any other tracks from FLOPNNE chart in the top 100 on iTunes besides the singles when both Rihanna and Bey dropped their albums both had either every song or the majority chart that first week so what Gaga is doing is not really impressive

  20. Wonder Woman October 28, 2016

    Biitch I have your Money was #1 on iTunes, dang it even “sold out ” on F’n iTunes but failed to out peak 7/11………

  21. The kpop guy, Matt ~ October 28, 2016

    Why is the navy trying it? Don’t they know Rih can’t sing

    • HailLegendBeysus October 28, 2016

      The slavi are so bipolar! Weren’t they just protecting Fad the other day trying desperately to drag Bey on this irrelevant blog site (according to them) that they suppose left month’s ago? LMAO!

    • CommonSense October 28, 2016

      Why is this dead eyed, worn out, tired, run down looking MATTress thing even mentioning ICONNA’S name?
      Last time we checked Rihanna’s unique voice is setting and breaking legendary records.
      Seethe at the fact that your desperate fave’s voice is being blackballed by the GP’s eardrum.

  22. MusicLife October 28, 2016

    Well it is because she discounted the brand new song to

    $0.69 to sell it.

    I mean who discounts a brand new song in its first week as an aestablished artist?

  23. Rima October 28, 2016

    Egg in the hive and navy’s face. How does it feel down there lessors?

    • HailLegendBeysus October 28, 2016

      Hoeanne is cheap discount album toddlers play with! Her over the top pretentious “I’m so artsy” act is stale old and boring! She wants to be Taylor Swift with this new album so bad! Poor hoeanne, hopefully all these discounts get her a 200k debut ????!!! Because we all know that inevitable 99% second week drop is COMING!

    • King B October 28, 2016

      Lemonade sold 200k… IN A DAY

  24. HailLegendBeysus October 28, 2016

    Po’Anne has to discount everything just for her broke ass flopsters to buy it. I predict the same thing to happen with her ticket sales for the Hoeanna A Worldwide Flopping Mess Tour!

  25. Theman October 28, 2016

    Y’all mad looooooool

    • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

      It´s being atonishing. First the biggest hate campaign of the last 5 years and now the meltdowns as they undertand they couldn´t finish her either way. Strokes will be happening by the time Superbowl arrives 🙂

  26. Casual-T October 28, 2016

    Good for her. Prior to the album release, this era didn’t seem promising, so I am glad she’s seeing signs of progress.

  27. Rihboy October 28, 2016

    Doesn’t stop her from being a flop this time! Going to number 1 on iTunes these days ain’t worth s***! Especially when short lived!

    • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

      Why is she a flop this time? This is not flopping and is exceeding all the people wanted her to fail expectations. With a huge change of genre she´ll sell what Rihanna sells staying pop and with hit singles to help. So that makes Rihanna a persistent flop then? 🙂

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        Rihanna has topped the charts with ballads hun let’s see if Gaga can do that shall we

      • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

        Call me when Rihanna can truly change genre (but I mean a real change, not trying to act like a “rock star” and you buying such bullpshit) and her team doesn´t decide to cancel the whole thing LOL Bish please. You stan for RIHANNA! Stop it. Girl cannot sing or perform or songwrite.

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        All I have to say is that Rih has done every damn genre of music and has topped the charts with ease with each one GAGA will never! Didn’t she die her hair blonde and steal the image of her best friend ?! Lol like come on GAga is not as artistic as she puts on and it’s clear her dear old friend Perez has had much to say about the evil woman u Stan for hun and Rihanna just received a songwring nomination as the Soul train awards this year and owns her own label and masters Gags is till interscopes puppet so move along !

      • JOHNVIDAL October 29, 2016

        Boy stop the delusions. Rihanna is pop and that´s it. She trying to act liek a rock star doesn´t make her a real musician. Among the two, the one who has changed genre (successfully at that) has been Gaga with a pure Jazz album. Rihanna has not changed genres. Stop the delusions. Diamonds is a pop ballad, in case you were counting that and as a different genre LOL

  28. CommonSense October 28, 2016

    Gag is known for her front loaded sales. Her albums don’t have the same sales format as rihanna- which is known for its longevity in sales mainly as a result of her musical hits.
    If VOMIT doesn’t sell much album from the front end, she has no chance of selling much in the latter end.

  29. Datredd23 October 28, 2016

    She has had the biggest promotional campaign this year out of any female artists by far she should have reached number one with a discounted single lol

    • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

      The biggest? lol Why? Cause she went to SNL and Carpool on release week just like everybody else? You´re mad mad mad 🙂

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        She went on to a few other shows aswell as doing many radio interviews and not to mention she’s paying the NFL and MLB to spin her songs they have the biggest audiences in America right now with the World Series and football still being the number one programming overall in America ! Not to mention the discount! Lol

      • JOHNVIDAL October 28, 2016

        She´s doing what everybody does. Stop it. In fact this album campaign has been pretty short and traditional. It´s killing you damn it! 🙂

      • Datredd23 October 28, 2016

        Not every artist as the luxury of a superpower like the NFL to support them and promote their material! Kii is Gags had to pay to perform the Super Bowl so at least she is getting her money back one way or the other lol

      • JOHNVIDAL October 29, 2016

        Boy stop it Rihanna and the others have had all the promo they could always and that´s it. And payola and everything. How about the 7 prepared-for-radio singles Rihanna has been releasing per year since 2005 non stop? Just get over it. Gaga is doing well despite people like you and despite a REAL change of genre.

  30. King B October 28, 2016

    So… Joanne debuted at #3 in UK.
