U.K. CHARTS: GAGA CRUISES TO #1
6/5/20

Lady Gaga’s Chromatica (Polydor) has posted the biggest opening week sales for an album in the U.K. this year, hitting the top of the Official Albums Chart on 53,000. Over on singles, DaBaby f/Roddy Ricch’s “Rockstar” (Polydor) returns to the top.

With Chromatica, Gaga has her fourth U.K. #1 and smashes the first week tallies of her 2014 album Cheek To Cheek, 2016’s Joanne and the cast recording of A Star Is Born from 2018.

It outperformed the rest of this week’s Top 10 combined and is the fastest-selling vinyl record of the year to date with 8,500 copies sold. In addition, Gaga claims the biggest opening week for a female artist album since Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next in February 2019.

Three songs from Chromatica finish inside this week’s Official Singles Top 40: “Rain On Me” f/Grande is at #2, “Sour Candy” with Blackpink lands at #17 and “Alice” is #29.
