11th Top ten hit

Just weeks after Gaga’s smash hit single “The Edge of Glory” ended its 3-month run in the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100, the singer is back in the top tier as her latest release “Yoü And I” jumps 16-6 on this week’s chart. Thanks to Gaga’s show-stopping performance at the MTV Video Music Awards, the track is one of the top gainers with a 61% increase in sales (175,000 copies) and 32% in airplay.

The Mutt Lange-produced “Yoü And I” becomes Lady Gaga’s eleventh consecutive top ten hit in the United States, putting her in fourth place among solo artists with the most top top tens in a row, only behind Janet Jackson, Madonna and Whitney Houston.

Since the release of “Just Dance” back in 2008, Gaga sold more than 35 million digital tracks in the U.S. alone, among which are “Poker Face,” the most downloaded song by a female artist of all time, and “Paparazzi,” which was the singer’s only number one on Billboard’s Radio Songs until “Born This Way” stormed the chart earlier this year.

Worldwide, her international hits such as “Bad Romance,” “Alejandro” and “Judas” as well as albums, including the hot-selling Born This Way, have moved an impressive 90 million copies, which already makes Gaga one of the best-selling musicians of all time.
