New Delhi: Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga starrer ‘A Star Is Born’ soundtrack has hit the number one spot in Billboard’s 200 album chart. The soundtrack, which was released on October 5, kicked off at the top of the tally with 2,31,000 equivalent units, out of which 1,62,000 were in album sales. While Lady Gaga has bagged the position five times before, it is even more special for actor Bradley Cooper as he has achieved his first No. 1. The Oscar-nominated actor, who recently made his directorial debut, had never ventured into the music world before this film.
According to a report by Billboard, the chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the United States. The ranking is based on the multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units. Praising Cooper’s singing skills, in one of the promotional interviews, the ‘Bad Romance’ singer had earlier told E News that when she heard him sing for the first time, she stopped dead in her tracks, playing the piano, looked over to him and said,
“Bradley, you can sing! Oh my gosh! It was wonderful.” So far, ‘A Star Is Born’ has released only one proper single, “Shallow,” which was released before the full soundtrack was made available.
