Published: Saturday 13th Oct 2018 by Sam

Lady Gaga‘s ‘A Star Is Born’ is finding new ways to shine – seemingly by the day.

The latest ray of success comes courtesy of the Billboard 200 chart, where the movie’s soundtrack reigns atop of the Pop pack.

The final numbers are in and, per Billboard, ‘Star’ sold the following:

Having initially, been poised for a close showdown with Twenty One Pilots, Gaga and co-star Bradley Cooper charged ahead – courtesy of the movie-effect – with numbers higher than initially forecast.

Now, with the penultimate figures in, the pair’s 19-track set actually ended up topping the revised numbers too.

And with several songs including ‘Shallow’ shaping up to be a smash on the singles chart and award season still to come, it looks like this success story is only on its first chapter.

Congrats to all!

      Nicki Minaj will say she deserves to be number one again

      • Tina October 13, 2018

        Like really. What does Nicki Minaj have to do with this.

    She is a true star though.

    People sold her out and said she was over. She did a few things and grew stronger.
    Respect for a real entertainer and all rounder.

    Bradley made a brilliant choice casting Gaga! She was amazing in this movie, I hope this is the start of an amazing movie career for her. <3

    “Always remember us this way” is A CLASSIC!

    Wow I´m so happy to see this type of things happening to the right people. She also exceeded expectations with Joanne btw. They wanted her dead but she wasn´t at any point really. And before that she had the success with the Jazz album. The ones that truly ended where we know they were going to end sooner or later are the basic ones. In this case, as I anticipated a week ago, the film and soundtrack are having legs worldwide being #1 in the UK too for example.

    Her career is resilient.

    Well deserved! The soundtrack is truly one of the better pieces of music to come out this year. Sucks the album didn’t make Grammy deadline for the 2019 Awards. It would’ve been great to see how it would stack up against others for Album of The Year. Now it’ll have to go toe-to-toe with The Lion King soundtrack (which I sense will receive similar reception) and possibly solo records from Bey, Adele and Lords knows who.

    • JOHNVIDAL October 14, 2018

      The Lion King soundtrack SHOULD BE way bigger than this. The music for that original animated film is pretty much the most famous ever from any animated film and has not been seen since then. A remake and new versions with Beyonce´s name on it (in the music) should guarantee huge success. This Lady Gaga soundtrack/album is very different. It is all ORIGINAL music made by her. This success is an acomplishment of her own. If that Lion King soundtrack doesn´t do better than Gaga then they can be sure they have done something wrong. Beyonce knows how to attach her name to movies these days. She knows she cannot pull of a A star is Born nowadays, she would be panned by critics. So she has involved herself musically in a soundtrack that provides guaranteed exposure and success.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B October 14, 2018

        You just don’t like beyonce. I give her back handed compliment after back handed compliment.its very tired ,

      • Vernell Hill October 14, 2018

        You’re always throwing rocks and hiding your hands when it comes to Beyonce. LOL you aren’t slick f*****.

      • JOHNVIDAL October 14, 2018

        I´m not a Beyonce fan no. And?
