Gaga earns her fourth No. 1 and first since “Born This Way” in 2011. Shallow dethrones 7 Rings which ruled 5 weeks on the chart.
Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “Shallow” blasts from No. 21 to No. 1 for its first week atop the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
Gaga ends the longest gap between Hot 100 No. 1s since Beyoncé, who waited two weeks shy of nine years between “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” in 2008-09 and “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran in 2017-18.
At 22 weeks, “Shallow” ties for the 10th-longest climb to No. 1 on the Hot 100, matching the rise of “Just Dance” (and Vangelis’ “Chariots of Fire,” which led in 1982). Los Del Rio’s “Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix)” completed a record 33-week trek to the top in 1996.
The Star is Born Soundtrack is also #1 on this weeks Billboard 200. It marks the fist time Gaga has topped both charts at the same time.
