The A Star Is Born album is extremely popular. The soundtrack of Bradley Cooper’s movie came in the US this weekend on number one of Billboard’s album list.
The record is the fifth number one of Lady Gaga, who plays one of the two leading roles in the film and co-wrote the soundtrack, which of course she can also hear.
Earlier, the singer reached the top spot in the album list with Joanne (2016), Artpop (2013), Born This Way (2011) and Cheek to Cheek, her album in collaboration with Tony Bennett from 2014.
The soundtrack is the best scoring in more than three years. In 2015, more records were sold from Fifty Shades of Gray which in that period was only enough for a number two listing.
Gaga is the first female artist to end up with number one in this decade. Five gentlemen introduced her: Drake succeeded eight times, Justin Bieber six. Future, J.Cole and Kanye West each ran the list five times, just like Gaga.
