For once again, Lady GaGa’s legions of die hard fans have taken her straight to #1, this time on the Official UK Top 40 album Chart with her new album ‘Born This Way‘.This marks another UK #1 album for the starlet who enjoyed the same feat with previous releases, ‘The Fame‘ and its sister album ‘The Fame Monster‘. Moreover, the feat sees the singer break British chart record.
Beating Adele’s ‘21′ to this week’s top spot, GaGa also has cause to celebrate, as ‘Born’ sold an impressive 215,000 units, becoming in the process the fastest selling album released here this year.
“I feel so honoured to have the highest first-week sales in the UK this year. I wrote the album’s first single ‘Born This Way’ in Manchester because I was so inspired by the confidence and bravery characteristic of my fans, little monsters. To the United Kingdom, thank you for believing in me.”
