Lady Gaga's Born This Way Gets The No. 1 Spot It Was Probably Born To Have
Congratulations to Lady Gaga, whose album Born This Way beat out the projections and moved 1.1 million copies in its first week for the top slot on the Billboard 200 and the best seven-day sales tally since 2005, when 50 Cent's The Massacre moved 1.14 million copies over the span of a week. It just goes to show you that the combination of super-deep discounting, scorched-earth ad campaigns, tireless promo on TV and really good songs can translate into lines forming at the cash register! Now, who's going to try and step up to that plate next?
