Billboard 200: Lady Gaga’s ‘Star Is Born’ Beats Ariana Grande & Offset For Top Spot

Published: Saturday 2nd Mar 2019 by Rashad

Lady Gaga‘s having the best week ever.

Kicking it off with an amazing Academy Awards’ performance and ‘Best Original Song’ win for her song, ‘Shallow’ (from the ‘Star is Born’ movie soundtrack), the Pop diva later learned the song is also reportedly on its way to unseat Ariana Grande‘s ‘7 Rings’ from atop the Billboard Hot 100 (click here to read more).

As if that’s not enough cause to celebrate, now it appears the Oscars performance not only helped fuel sales of the song but also its parent album.  For, official tallies now reveal Gaga’s bypassed contender Offset and his debut solo album, ‘Father of 4,’ to dethrone Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ album from the Billboard 200’s perch.

With an Oscar boost, sale pricing and, well, perhaps some sort of Gaga-related enchantment that transcends the physical realm, Interscope‘s A Star Is Born soundtrack zooms to #1 on this week’s [album charts with approximately 125k SPS], edging Republic champ Ariana Grande, who’s no slouch herself with [an estimated] 117k.

The triumphant return to the summit comes over four months since it debuted atop the Billboard 200 with a whopping 231K SPS (click here to read).  Finally, Migos star Offset is set to round out the top 3 with approximately 88k SPS.  Congratz to all!

    Ariana just got her ponytail snatched lol 😂 🤳🏽

      What ponytail? Ariana’s pony is still intact. 2 debut number 1 singles, album number 1 for two weeks. Won her first grammy some few weeks ago.
      She’s winning

      • Fancy BISH March 3, 2019

        A Star Is Born Soundtrack came out during the Sweetener era, let’s not forget! 😂 IF Gaga goes #1 on the Billboard 200 and the Billboard Hot 💯 as well then Ariana got that ponytail snatched! Her ponytail might still be intact after her glam squad fixes it, but her scalp is sensitive and she still has a headache 🤣

        lol If you’re comparing the two, Gaga is winning. A Grammy, an Oscar, a number 1 album. And it’s very likely Shallow will make its way back up the Hot 100 too. All from an album released 5 months ago. And in the pop space, Ariana is “Winning” because no one else is competing… She has nobody to “win” against.

    Poor Offset. & Solange is coming for Gagas NECK next week. Solange fans are super loyal.

    • NotoriousTruthTeller March 3, 2019

      Like you are loyal to your cheapass junkfood

    • B March 3, 2019

      H** ist speknek

    • MR RCW March 3, 2019

      That Solange album sounds like a mix tape or demo. I can’t get with it

  4. King of Kingz March 3, 2019

  7. Shayla Queen 👑 March 3, 2019

    When does Khia new album drop? That s*** will be FIRE. It’s time she had a number one 👑🔥

    • HOWYOULIKEIT March 3, 2019

      lmao. Does she have new music?

    • Fancy BISH March 3, 2019

      lol, she should name it Miss Shamone or Gag Order 🤣

  8. Brent Christopher March 3, 2019

    THIS did not really happen. These numbers were paid for. There is no way that Gaga’s melodramatic Oscar Performance just majestically set sales into orbit in this way. GET REAL!!

    • JOHNVIDAL March 3, 2019

      Yes it does. People sometimes can see real talent and music .It hapenned many times with Adele´s “21” everytime she appeared somewhere. We are not used to it anymore since the 90s ended, but it can happen. It is what happens when real talent gets the biggest exposure.

  9. JOHNVIDAL March 3, 2019

    Amazing and so rewarding to see someone like LADY GAGA winning like this. What a beautiful comeback and what 10 years of mainstream career. She has done it all in just 10 years.
    Again, why hasn´t SHALLOW been #1 yet on Billboard when it clearly is the biggest real hit of the last 6 months?
    What an evolutiin, from the monumental new pop megastar of The Monster Fame days to the refined ballader of prestide circuits at the oscars ceremony with the world focused on her in that stage with Bradley. In the middle of that? Musical evolution, vocals, Jazz, spectacle, mega videos, Superbowl, huge tours…

    • Fancy BISH March 3, 2019

      It’s official…she’s back at #1 on the Billboard 200 😎 Remember when we were discussing Star Is Born first week sales, and we said it was about longevity? Well, she’s showing it! 🤗 #ASlayIsBorn

    • Kino Doe March 4, 2019

      She, her record label, and Amazon paired and sold her album for 3.99 Saturday and Sunday 2.99. Its simply a capitalism move and a way to top the charts. Also if your song wins an oscar then the apparent album should jump but without the heavy sales slash she wiukdve been top 3

  10. POPS MOTHER March 3, 2019

    Gaga is winning across all levels and EVERYBODY WILL DEAL!!!
