Forbes: Big names like Gaga can still sell albums

Many people have switched from buying albums to streaming them on their favorite platform, though that doesn’t mean album sales have evaporated entirely. In fact, while many underground artists now find it difficult to sell units, the biggest names in the business can still move hundreds of thousands of copies, and now Nielsen has shared which musicians have sold the most in the first half of 2019.

 

The bestselling album of 2019, at least so far, is the A Star Is Born soundtrack, which has sold just over 400,000 copies. That is an impressive sum, especially considering it also performed very well in 2018 when it was first released. The fact that lead single “Shallow” won a handful of Grammys and an Oscar in early 2019 has likely helped it continue to ship CDs and digital copies.

didn’t y’all say that even if she had a movie it wouldn’t matter because her name doesn’t have power anymore and she’s over? now that she did well with a movie the argument is “well she won’t have it next time” nnn :dies:

How did having a movie help the Crossroads OST sell?

1. Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper - A Star Is Born original soundtrack - 404,000

Thats v impressive considering it was released in 2018. A soundtrack accomplishing that in the streaming era is a phenom.

 

Billie :clap3:Ariana being top 10 is cute since it was her 2nd album such a short span of time

That’s very off-topic user Remixed.

 

OT: From the girls from herr generation, Gaga is still selling the least. Taylor is selling more, Rihanna sold more, Beyoncé sold more with Lemonade, etc...  She only sells more than Katy Perry which is a streaming artist these days.

It's very on topic actually.

 

You said that ASIB was a "gimmick" and the only reason it sold well is cause Gaga was in a movie.  Just asking how your fave in particular did with a movie. Way to divert :laugh:
