GaGa Sets Another Radio Record
Lady GaGa has set another record with her amazing list of hit singles. "Bad Romance" becomes her 5th consecutive #1 radio single in the US.
The record-breaking "Bad Romance" has made Lady GaGa the first artist in the Pop songs radio airplay chart's 17-year history to send her first five singles to #1.
Just as impressively, a year ago this week, GaGa had yet to lead the list. She first reigned 51 weeks ago, on the chart dated January 24, 2009, when "Just Dance" began a two-week stay at #1. The next three singles from her debut album, "The Fame" also went #1: "Poker Face" (five weeks, beginning April 25), "LoveGame" (two weeks beginning July 25) and "Paparazzi" (two weeks, beginning November 14).
GaGa is only one single into "The Fame Monster" and she could possibly extend her lead with her second single, "Telephone" which features Beyonce is currently #27 on the chart and climbing.
GaGa spoke to Billboard Magazine about her record-breaking #1 single, "Bad Romance":
"Just six months ago, 'Bad Romance' was nothing but a dream, a recurring melody, a lyric hidden on a napkin on my tour bus.
"Now, it's my fifth No. 1 record, and a reminder to fans to always follow their dreams. I would like to thank all my beautiful little monsters and my incredibly supportive team for the most memorable year of my life.
"To have had such a phenomenal reception to my second album, 'The Fame Monster,' is life-changing."
