The first week sales from Born This Way, Lady Gaga’s newest opus, are in. Her third album officially sold 1,108,000 million copies in it’s first week in stores. Yes, you heard that right – over ONE MILLION copies in week one. This easily gives her the #1 spot on the Billboard charts. Some fun facts: It is only the 17th album to sell 1 million copies or more in one week. It is her first album or EP release to go to #1. This is the most sales from one album since 2005, when 50 Cent’s The Massacre sold 1.4 million in it’s first week. Over 600,000 copies came from digital download sources – the most in music history!
Give it up for The Gaga!
