Lady Gaga’s RIAA Certified Sales Surpass 100 Million

Published: Wednesday 1st Apr 2020 by Rashad

Lady Gaga‘s been given a 101 million reasons to celebrate thanks to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) updating their sales logs of her catalog.

Already one of the digital era’s most successful acts, new information about the continued commercial performance of some of her biggest hits (i.e. ‘Just Dance ‘Applause,’ ‘Shallow,’ and more) has now put her in an exclusive club in the organization.

Details inside:

The RIAA re-certified multiple prized entries from Gaga’s discography Friday (March 27).  See the list below:



Thanks to the renewed counts, Gaga’s surpassed the 100 million RIAA certified units threshold (when albums and singles are included). 

The win not only makes her the sixth female act to accomplish this in the United States (following Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Mariah Carey), but – when digital single sales are considered alone – she places sixth among all acts (behind Drake, Rihanna, Swift, Eminem, and Perry).

    PERIODTTTTTTTTTT Gaga is a queen and ya’ll will deal

    • Arihanna grande April 1, 2020

      Queen of my nuttyshit

    • Susan April 1, 2020

      Yeah…a drag queen darling. A face only a mother could love, and dance moves only a nursing home would think were good.

  3. Arihanna grande April 1, 2020

    What a needless award … Selling 0.99 cent songs getting award nowadays

  4. Arihanna grande April 1, 2020

    She will never reach Madonna levels.. 2nd hand madonna

        Girl. Gaga is done. Her album is going to flop. You saw how fast stupid love came and went. B**** released a damn video dancing like a banana getting electrocuted. Damn mess. She’s over! This generation doesn’t care about Gaga…and teaming with Ari won’t get this generation to care about her. Deal! She’s done!

      • Arihanna grande April 1, 2020

        Madonna is a money machine and still makes more money than this Pokemon

    Sorry, but the b**** is ugly. The more I see her, the clearer it becomes that she used those crazy costumes to cover her less than attractive face. She’s not aging well and the filler she’s using is going to have her looking puffy like Madonna before she’s even 40. I can’t stand this fake b****. White people dont age well when they’re problematic. The white people that are nice age well.

  7. Susan April 1, 2020

    Gaga let’s not forget you sold your second album for 99 cents in a cheap attempt to beat Britney’s record for highest first week sales by a female artist (Adele broke Britney’s record fair and square without having to use gimmicks). I swear I can’t stand this girl. How long until the album is released so she can flop and go away?

    • Misty Knight April 1, 2020

      Not the full story. Yes, the first day of release her album was available for 99 cents on Amazon, but only Amazon. Amazon used her album to announce a new service, and it was worth it for them to take the loss hit for the publicity it generated. Amazon negotiated with Interscope/Universal to pay a wholesale price of $7 per album to the label. She didn’t sell the album for 99 cents – Amazon did, at a loss of $6 bucks per sale.

      The whole story is in Forbes magazine, Billboard, etc.

      Album sales aren’t money makers anymore. It’s all about TOURING and she’s making the kind of money most artists will never see. Most of the biggest money making tours are from iconic artists who haven’t had a hit in 20, 30+ years. The Stones, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Bon Jovi, Metalicca and Michael Buble were six of top 10 tours of 2019.

      We get it, you hate her, which is fine. Hate who you want, but she’s never going away.

      • Susan April 1, 2020

        I don’t hate anyone. Gaga’s entire career is a gimmick. She’s not going anywhere? Uh, darling, where’s “stupid love” on the charts ?? This generation doesn’t care about Gaga. Sorry. You’ll deal. She doesn’t even care about her fans…there’s a reason she calls them little monsters. And read the story about how Gaga singlehandedly ruined Natalia Kills’ career because they came out at the same time and Gaga was scared of Natalia’s stealing her shine. Gaga is evil. Everyone in the industry knows it. Only a matter of time before she’s fully canceled like Nicki Minaj. Judgment day is coming.

    • Haterz Gon‘ Hate April 1, 2020

      Susan you sound pressed like a tampon to your pum pum in heavy flow.

      Make no mistake – despite the reductiveness that is ‘Stupid Love’ – it is but one song in a long discography for Gaga. What that single does not change is Gaga’s talent and artistry. Put Madonna on stage with a mic, a piano and a man with an acoustic guitar one night and Gaga another night and guess which crowd is getting their monies worth from? Stripped back the raw talent is obvious – in some ways Madonna was smart because she surrounded herself the right people to execute her Vison and she was an astute business woman – but Gaga’s talent works even without the frills and theatrics and that is something a record label cannot buy for an artist. She is THEE artist of her generation.

  8. Susan April 1, 2020

    TGJ: why not post about lady Gaga’s father asking the public to give his furloughed employees $50,000 on a gofundme? Why did he and lady Gaga not pay their employees? Gaga’s grew up very privileged – they have money. Can’t stand this selfish b****. The album is going to leak soon

    • Beylover April 1, 2020

      If you so mad…. then go in your bank account and give away your money!

      ? Stop counting folks wallets!

  9. Only Facts April 1, 2020

    I’m over Gaga. And this new album/era honestly seems like she’s just trying to reheat French fries. Gaga peaked…and it’s only down from here. Sorry.

  10. BeyRihCi April 1, 2020

    Newsflash ‼️‼️ NOBODY cares about Lady Gaga anymore.

    • MessyBoots April 1, 2020

      I swear folks on TGJ live in an alternate universe.

      Gaga has reinvented her career time and again.

      They claimed she was over after Born This Way. She was finished after ArtPop.

      Yet she has the most No.1 albums of any solo female of the last decade (tied w/ Swift) and in 2019 earned her fourth No.1 and an Oscar for Shallow.

      If that is considering ‘over’ or flopping Gaga’s bar for failure is extremely high.

      Congrats Gaga on your latest milestone. ???

      • BeyRihCi April 1, 2020

        Nobody in this new generation cares about Gaga. The ASIB soundtrack did good because it had hype around the movie. Stupid love came and went quicker than “don’t call me angel” by Ari/Miley/Lana. Gaga is what they call a HAS-BEEN! Sorry. The shelf life of a pop star is 10 years. The only pop stars to last longer than 10 years are Madonna, Janet, Britney and Beyoncé.

      • MessyBoots April 1, 2020

        You fail to realize one thing though…

        The ‘nobody in this generation’ you speak of is clearly referring to GEN Z, young folks under the age of 20.

        That demographic are the ones currently influencing the Hot 100, STREAMING and YouTube stats. You are correct that Gaga is likely not as relevant anymore fore that demo.

        Most artists that debuted in the late 00s are no longer relevant on today’s streaming charts.

        But this is the problem w/ most individuals like yourself that are really stupid.

        Just because Gaga is no longer considered the ‘IT’ artist for ‘this generation’ doesnt negate from her achievements overall.

        Gaga is still considered a SUPERSTAR by every metric known today. On the A-List for over a DECADE now. Nothing you type about her relevancy to ‘this generation’ will ever change what she has accomplished.

        Most of the ‘relevant’ pop artists charting today can only DREAM of having a career parallel to Gaga a decade later. ALL of them.

        And that is a fact.

    I’m confused I know Madonna, Janet, and Britney all have sold over a 100 million so what is this referring too

    • Susan April 1, 2020

      They re-certified her old songs. This includes singles and albums. She hasn’t sold 100 million albums like the true legends. This new album will stall at 250k worldwide. Watch.

  12. JOHNVIDAL April 1, 2020

    Well congrats I love her talent and always like her stuff. She´s very successful.
    However that list is like a big dammn joke. Those names are not the biggest sellers period. Real album sales keep being the standard to reach.

  13. Beylover April 1, 2020

    Congratulations Gaga! Hard works pays off!

    So many NEGATIVE & MISERABLE people in these comments….. it’s not that deep y’all!

    • Ken tucky April 5, 2020

      Like u miserableAss pedicular

  14. 1988 April 1, 2020

    Congrats to Lady Gaga! And for whom it’s concerned Stupid Love is currently no. 27 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 11 in the world (week 4). 🙂 Hope your favorite is Top 40…lol.

  15. PinotNoir April 2, 2020

    Good for her record label

  16. Bojan April 2, 2020

    Huuuuuge congratulations to Mariah Carey. The only female artist pre digital era to be included on the list. The only real female legend that keeps on winning.
