Lady Gaga Eyes #1 Spot With ‘Shallow’ After Oscars Glory

Published: Wednesday 27th Feb 2019 by Sam

Lady Gaga is arguably at the apex of her career thus far following her historic win at the Oscars on Sunday night.

Now, the after-glow of her triumph may very well benefit ‘Shallow’ – the song that secured her her first ever Academy award.

Details below…

As at writing, the Bradley Cooper collaboration from ‘A Star Is Born’ is battling it out with Ariana Grande‘s ‘7 Rings’ for the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.

Following a chemistry driven showing with Cooper on the ABC broadcast, the song shot up to #1 on the iTunes tally and has maintained a lead to the tune of 80% over its nearest competitor.

On the streaming front, ‘Shallow’ has blasted back into the top ten of streaming platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music.

It’s generated what looks to be a perfect storm that could see it hit over 145,000 in sales – which would make a re-peak for the song (which to date reached #5 on the Hot 100) a certainty and #1 very plausible.

Comparatively, Grande’s streams are off the Richter, as is her radio play – the latter of which has long proven to be ‘Shallow’s Achilles’ heel.

Still, it’s all to play for. And with Gaga and Cooper’s performance already at the 10 million mark – they may very well have even more to celebrate come the end of the current tracking week.

    Gaga is what White privilege looks like. Gaga is also what you look like when you pay the academy for your first Oscar. The fact she only removed R Kelly from DWYW just 1 month prior, is so it wouldn’t hurt her chances of winning and her White privilege paid off!

      Let’s be honest, her music is 2nd rate Madonna copies. But GAGA is a talented singer, songwriter, pianst and Talent. She is very Talented, i may not like some of her records but Her talent has never been a question.

    Gaga is the comeback queen. I’ve never seen anyone snatch back their career in this manner.

    • Jazzy Bi Asian ??‍♀️??‍♀️??‍♀️ February 27, 2019

      But let’s be real, her career never was really in that much of a slump. People just wanted it to be. Her last album was number 1, won Grammys, went platinum, was critically acclaimed, had a supporting tour and she did the Super Bowl. I’m trying to see where her career was just this down in the dumps ordeal where she was struggling. That’s kind of a reach, she’s been consistently successful

      • POPS MOTHER February 27, 2019

        I honestly truly agree. the only time she was a little low was during artpop.. Joanne kind of cured that for her as a whole era. sure the singles weren’t the strongest but she did a lot during the moment to keep on shining. before artpop and after she’s been fine.

      • JOHNVIDAL February 27, 2019

        Her career never died and I knew it was not going to die. She´s not Katy Perry. It seemed like it because of hating and absurd pop masses backlashes during a certain time. They wanted to end her so badly but couldn´t. She knew what she had to do, let pure pop a little bit behind and for for the prestige. She´s been incredibly verstaile in just 10 years. Rarely seen.

      • Really February 27, 2019

        I think in terms of popularity she definitely had a slump after Artpop but she wasn’t as visible for a while. This is certainly an inspiring comeback in my opinion

    • JOHNVIDAL February 27, 2019

      Mariah and Tina Turner. But you´re right. It´s amazing and SO satisfying to witness.

  5. Latinissima February 27, 2019

    Why biatches so jealous? Let Gaga have her amazing time and go off

  6. JOHNVIDAL February 27, 2019

    Why hasn´t this song been #1 ALREADY? They really ffucked up billboard charts. SHALLOW clarly is the biggest hit of the last 6 months and has also been #1 on itunes on countless occasions all these months. Probably the only song that has left a mark since October. Meanwhile all the basic Ariana stuff going #1 now? Who remembers those songs. They truly murdered the lists with the streaming pshit.

    • SMH February 27, 2019

      My thoughts exactly.

    • NotoriousTruthTeller February 27, 2019

      US radio is refusing to play it.


      • thanosoftitan February 27, 2019

        I was about to comment on this. I’ve never heard this song on Radio in the US. I’ve never even actually heard the song in its entirety before today, I only hear it mentioned on this blog site.

        Good for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper that the song is doing well, but I don’t see what all the hooplah is about. Not to say that the song isn’t good, but it’s not my coup of tea.

      • JOHNVIDAL February 27, 2019

        Really???? And why wouldn´t they want to play a song like this that is an absolute real hit? Crazy. It features two stars, it is short, people love it…

  7. ??? February 27, 2019

    lmaooo so are the roaches gonna be pressed about this too? i mean its been what, 20 years since roach saw the #1 spot on the hot 100? lmfaoooooooo

    • MissGuided February 27, 2019

      Shouldn’t you be worried about Nicki struggling to fill arenas and maintain relevancy?

    • Caleb February 27, 2019

      She was just on a #1 feature last year but go off.

      • Beam Me Up Scotty February 27, 2019

        Song was #1 without her but go off.

      • Fancy BISH February 27, 2019

        @Beam, Caleb is 100% right and yet here you are ? But where is Nicki’s #1 with, without, written by or even tweeted by Ed Sheeran? That’s the damn GAG ?

      • Clayne February 27, 2019

        Somg went nimber one WITH HER for 4-5 weeks and then continued to be number 1 without her. Get your facts together BISH

  8. February 27, 2019

    Love this song & their performance was great & emotional…definitely for show, which is a great way to promote the song.

  9. Dc February 27, 2019

  10. Ropeburn February 27, 2019

    Whew chile! Never underestimate the power of the gays to resurrect a pop star’s dead career! LOL! Got all the kids running around pretending to like her new music when they KNOW she ain’t put out nothin’ worth remembering since The Fame Monster circa 2010.

    • Fancy BISH February 27, 2019

      I would put Shallow in her Top 10 best songs…for real, I think it’s great ?? Trust me, if I thought it was wack I would tell ya lol ?
