Lady Gaga last week has set a digital sales record by selling more than 1.1 million copies of her album Born This Way to top the U.S. pop chart for the first time.
The album also debuted at number one on Billboard’s 200 US album chart and became the 17th album to sell 1 million copies in its first week, Billboard announced on Tuesday.
Lady Gaga is just the fifth female artist to have sold more than 1 million copies in SoundScan era.
The dance-pop provocateur first number one album sold the most copies of any debut since March 2005 when 50 Cent’s The Massacre sold 1.14m.
Taylor Swift’s Speak Now was the last one of such albums to have sold a million copies in November.
