Lady Gaga’s ‘ARTPOP’ #1 on iTunes of 25+ Countries as Petition For ‘ARTPOP II’ Surges to Nearly 45K Signatures

Published: Wednesday 14th Apr 2021 by Rashad

In news no one could have predicted, Lady Gaga‘s critically divisive third studio album – 2013’s ‘ARTPOP’ – is getting its due justice thanks to an aggressive fan campaign that could not only lead to a recharting on the Billboard 200 but also the release of its highly requested “sequel.”

Details inside:

As we reported here, ‘ARTPOP’ landed on #LittleMonsters’ radar again after a major production contributor – DJ White Shadow – made an April Fool’s joke about the unveiling of unreleased material from the era.  Once his comment (and subsequent apology) made its rounds, a group of overzealous fans responded by petitioning Gaga’s label home – Interscope Records – to release a compilation of vaulted tunes from the LP and christen it ‘ARTPOP Act II.’

At writing, over 44,400 people have signed it to demand a follow-up to the ‘Applause’-led opus.  Click here to see.

If that wasn’t enough, this week also saw fans launch a social media campaign to bring even more attention to the underserved era.  Using the hashtag #BuyARTPOPoniTunes, the effort pushed the 2013 project to #1 on the current sales tally – a feat that earned a nod from Gags herself (as we reported here).

At the time of this report, the campaign’s success shows no sign of slowing as ‘ARTPOP’ has topped the real-time sales list in 29 countries including France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Greece, Brazil, Colombia, Russia, Peru, Israel, and more.  At writing, the collective numbers have pushed the album to #2 on current Worldwide iTunes.

Look below to see who joins her in its top 10.


Bonus:  According to White Shadow, Gaga is well aware of the hoopla and has promised to at least discuss the possibility of making ‘ARTPOP II’ happen.
