Lady Gaga's 'Born This Way' Debuts With 1.1 Million Copies

You did it Little Monsters! Lady Gaga's sophomore album, Born This Way, topped the Billboard Top 200 after its first week of full sales. Born This Way sold 1,108,000 copies in its first weeks, marking only the 17th album to sell a million in a week since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales data in 1991. It is also the highest sales week since 50 Cent’s The Massacre hits stores in March 2005.
The number was undoubtedly aided by Amazon.com’s decision to sell the digital version of the album for just $.99 on both Monday and Friday of last week. In fact, Billboard reports that as many 662,000 digital copies were sold.
