Kicking it off with an amazing Academy Awards’ performance and ‘Best Original Song’ win for her song, ‘Shallow’ (from the ‘Star is Born’movie soundtrack), the Pop diva later learned the song is also reportedly on its way to unseat Ariana Grande‘s ‘7 Rings’ from atop the Billboard Hot 100 (click here to read more).
As if that’s not enough cause to celebrate, now it appears the Oscars performance not only helped fuel sales of the song but also its parent album. For, official tallies now reveal Gaga’s bypassed contender Offset and his debut solo album, ‘Father of 4,’ to dethrone Grande’s ‘thank u, next’ album from the Billboard 200’s perch.
With an Oscar boost, sale pricing and, well, perhaps some sort of Gaga-related enchantment that transcends the physical realm, Interscope‘s A Star Is Born soundtrack zooms to #1 on this week’s [album charts with approximately 125k SPS], edging Republic champ Ariana Grande, who’s no slouch herself with [an estimated] 117k.
The triumphant return to the summit comes over four months since it debuted atop the Billboard 200 with a whopping 231K SPS. Finally, Migos star Offset is set to round out the top 3 with approximately 88k SPS. Congratz to all!
