Lady Gaga And Bradley Cooper Debut At No. 1 On Billboard Chart With ‘A Star Is Born’ Soundtrack

A Star Is Born‘ might have lost out on the top spot at the box office, thanks to the comic-book flick Venom, but it did land a number one debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

The album was released back on October 5. It sold over 230,000 album units, which is the biggest debut week for a soundtrack in more than three years.

“Of A Star Is Born’s 231,000 units, most come from album sales: 162,000. The rest of the units are comprised of SEA units totaling 37,000, and TEA units equaling 32,000.”

This is Lady Gaga’s fifth No. 1 album this decade. That’s the most among female performers. She was previously tied with Taylor Swift.

Here is another cool fact…

“After only one week on sale, A Star Is Born becomes the third-largest selling soundtrack of 2018. With 162,000 sold, it trails only The Greatest Showman(with 1.26 million sold in 2018, of its total 1.35 million, as it was released in 2017) and Black Panther: The Album (with 223,000).”

By the way, the film is performing well at the box office as well. It’s made over $94 million in the states and has a worldwide total of $135 million.

David Hasselhoff Has A Song On The Soundtrack For Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, And It’s Actually Not That Bad (LISTEN)

There is not a lot of exciting movie news to report today, so we’re reaching deep with this one. The soundtrack (Awesome Mix Vol. 2) to the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was released earlier this week, and as expected…it’s filled with some great tunes.

You’ll remember just how great the soundtrack for the first film was. It reached number one on the US Billboard 200 chart, and as of January 2015, it sold over 1,000,000 copies, and went certified Platinum.

This new soundtrack for the second film in the franchise will likely have similar success. It features songs from Fleetwood Mac, George Harrison, Sam Cooke, Cat Stevens, and uh…David Hasselhoff.

That’s right. The Baywatch star has his own song on the track, and you can listen to it in the video below.

Hasselhoff rapping in a song performed by a fictional band full of aliens? Sure. It’s 2017. Anything can (and probably will) happen.

By the way, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5, 2017.
