Guinness World Records credits Lady Gaga as the first female artist to achieve four 10-million-selling singles.
It is no secret that Lady Gaga is known all around the world. Not only has she proven to be a terrific actress (she was nominated for an Academy Award for her role in "A Star is Born"), her iconic hit songs shaped and influenced many generations, creating an iconic legacy that has not yet met an end.
Since her very first album, The Fame (2008), Lady Gaga proved to the world that she knew how to change the game, spawning hit singles like Just Dance and Poker Face that broke any record know at the time. As if that wasn't enough, the re-edition of The Fame, called The Fame Monster (2009), impacted the music industry so greatly that many artists today are still inspired by her iconic music videos, such as Bad Romance and Telephone.
After a career full of wins, today we're celebrating another huge milestone: Lady Gaga has officially become the first female artist to have 4 singles that have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.
The Guinness World Record States:
Lady Gaga (USA, b. Stefani Germanotta) was the first female artist to sell 10 million copies of three singles worldwide: “Just Dance” (2008), “Poker Face” (2008) and “Bad Romance” (2009). More recently, Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born duet with Bradley Cooper, “Shallow” (2018), gave her a fourth 10-million-selling single to take her clear of Katy Perry, Rihanna, and Adele, who have all completed their own hat-trick of 10-million-sellers.
Lady Gaga has appeared six times – more than any other female artist – on the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry’s (IFPI) annual Global Top Digital Singles chart: “Poker Face” (No.1 in 2009), “Just Dance” (No.4 in 2009), “Bad Romance” (No.2 in 2010), “Telephone” (No.4 in 2010), “Born this Way” (No.6 in 2011) and “Shallow” (No.8 in 2019). “Shallow” shifted 10.2 million copies worldwide in 2019.
Lady Gaga, who released her 6th album "Chromatica" last year, winning another Grammy Award for its hit single Rain On Me with Ariana Grande, is currently in Italy filming Ridley Scott's upcoming movie "House of Gucci" with Academy Award nominees Adam Driver and Salma Hayek and winners Jared Leto and Al Pacino. The movie is anticipated for a November release in theatres worldwide.
