Lady Gaga set impressive pace at UK music chart with her latest album “Chromatica” across all formats.
Lady Gaga’s Chromatica is the fastest-selling vinyl album on the year, based on just three days of sales.
Her latest album “Chromatica” was her sixth studio album, which dropped last Friday (May 29), is outperforming the rest of the top 20 combined, according to the Official Charts Company reports.
Across all formats (physical, download and streaming), Chromatica has shifted more than 40,000 chart sales to take top spot on the Official U.K. Albums Chart Update.
Gaga has tasted life at the U.K. Albums Chart summit on three occasions, with 2009’s The Fame/The Fame Monster, which was packaged as one album in the U.K.; 2011’s Born This Way and 2013’s Artpop.
Over in the singles chart race, Gaga’s “Rain On Me” featuring Ariana Grande dips 1-2 after briefly taking the lead based on weekend sales and streaming activity. It’s one of three Chromatica tracks impacting the midweek top 40, with “Sour Candy” featuring BlackPink new at No. 14 and “Alice” starting at No. 24.
On Youtube, her official music video for “Rain on me”, has reached 75 million views after just 1 week of publishing. Meanwhile, the song “Sour Candy” featuring Korean girlgroup Blackpink has more than 40 million views with just an audio version.
“Chromatica” is marked as her full album comeback after Joanne, which was out in 2016. All the songs from this album are her true experience and feeling expression from what she’s been through in private life and career.
According to the Born this way’s singer, Chromatica is a return to Gaga’s dance-pop days, that doesn’t mean quite the same thing now. It’s been 12 years since her debut album The Fame, released when “EDM” was just corporate jargon and “dance” meant stompy electroclash.
The Official U.K. Singles and Albums Charts are published Friday evening, local time.
