Lady Gaga Scores Double UK Number 1 As ‘Shallow’ Tops Singles Chart
Gaga ooh-la-la! Back where she belongs...
The A Star Is Born original is the pop superstar’s fifth UK chart-topper and first in over eight years, when ‘Telephone’ hit Number 1 in 2010.
That’s not all, though, as the film soundtrack returns to the top of the Official Albums Chart, knocking off Jess Glynne’s second album down to Number 3.
This is the third time (!) that Gaga has dominated both charts simultaneously, achieving the special feat in 2009 and 2010. This time, though, she reportedly makes history as the first artist ever to have the Number 1 single, album and film in the UK. Now check that!
In 2009, she ruled with ‘Poker Face’ and The Fame before doing the same the following year with her massive Beyoncé collaboration ‘Telephone’ and The Fame Monster.
This marks Bradley’s first time enjoying the chart double, which isn’t bad considering the A Star Is Born soundtrack is his first ever musical release. Slay!
The actor is also the first to have a Number 1 single in seventeen years (!!) as nobody has achieved it since Nicole Kidman and Robbie Williams went to the top in 2001 with their Christmas duet ‘Somethin’ Stupid’.
‘Shallow’ moves Calvin Harris and Sam Smith’s banger ‘Promises’ down to Number 2, while Dave and Fredo have the Number 3 spot with ‘Funky Friday’.
BLACKPINK also make UK chart history as the first K-pop group to enter the Top 40, coming in at Number 36 with their new Dua Lipa collab ‘Kiss and Make Up’.
Over on the Official Albums Chart, the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack debuts at Number 5 and The Greatest Showman soundtrack climbs back up to Number 2 ahead of its all-star covers release.
We sure do love a soundtrack in the UK, don’t we? That, and a certain Lady Gaga.
