Lady Gaga’s debut album The Fame just crossed its 500th week on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Album chart, becoming the first album in history to achieve this milestone.
Gaga’s multi-platinum dance-electro-pop record released in 2008, spent 500 weeks or nearly 10 years on the Billboard chart, a feat that no other album has done so. On this weeks chart in its record-breaking 500th week, the album is placed at the second position, 15 years after the release.
The Fame already holds the record for the most weeks at number one on the same chart with 175 weeks. Lady Gaga is also the artist with the most cumulative weeks at number one with 244 weeks, as seven of her albums reached the top spot. The Fame also made it as the year-end number-one album on the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums Year-End chart, being the number one album in 2009, 2010 and 2021.
