Lady Gaga Hits No. 1 on Billboard Chart With Her Fourth Album ‘Joanne’


Lady Gaga returns with album ‘Joanne’ which earned No. 1 on Billboard 200 alum chart. It earned 201, 000 equivalent album units which is incredible considering the poor sales of records in these times.
Joanne follows Lady Gaga’s previous chart-toppers Cheek to Cheek (with Tony Bennett, in 2014), Artpop (2013) and Born This Way (2011).
The album’s 201,000 launch is the fourth-largest debut of 2016, and the second-biggest for a woman. Ahead of it are Drake’s Views (1.04 million), Beyonce’s Lemonade (653,000) and Frank Ocean’s Blonde (276,000 units).
Lady Gaga was in full-on promotion mode during the album’s debut week. She performed on NBC’s Saturday Night Live (Oct. 22), sat down for an interview with SiriusXM’s Howard Stern (Oct. 24), took part in James Corden’s popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment of his CBS show The Late Late Show (Oct. 25) and concluded her Bud Light-sponsored dive bar tour in Los Angeles on Oct. 27.
It should be noted that Gaga is the first woman with four No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 in the 2010s surpassing Beyonce and Taylor swift who hold three No 1’s during the decade. Justin Bieber and Drake lead with six Billboard 200 No. 1’s each since 2010, while One Direction and Kanye West each boast four.
