Lady Gaga’s career is shining like never before in the UK.
For while ‘A Star Is Born’ is very much a global phenomenon, its collective success in Great Britain, has been unparalleled.
Details on Mother Monster’s triple win – across the singles, album, and box office charts – below…
Powered by digital sales of 40,000 this week alone, the Bradley Cooper assisted ‘Shallow’ (the lead single from ‘Star’s soundtrack) shoots #4-#1 on the Official UK Singles Chart, earning Gaga her fifth Brit chart-topper and her first in eight-years. In achieving the win, she unseated Calvin Harris and Sam Smith’s ‘Promises’ in the process.
Prior to now, her last reign atop of the coveted count was with 2010’s ‘Telephone.’
The incredible feat is rendered all the more impactful given that Gaga also occupies the #1 spot on the Official UK Album Chart with the film’s companion LP. While the Warner Bros production extends its reign on the official UK box office tally too.
A triple slay, if you will!
Musically though, this is actually the third time the diva has pulled off a chart double.
She simultaneously occupied the #1 single and #1 album spots in the UK with ‘Poker Face’ and ‘The Fame’ and again with Beyonce collab ‘Telephone’ and ‘The Fame Monster.’
Other notables about ‘Star’s wins include the fact that the ‘Shallow’ becomes Bradley Cooper’s first #1. Elsewhere, this week also brought with it climbs for other sounds on the project, ‘Always Remember Us This Way’ jumps to #25 and power ballad ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ ascends to #27.
