Gaga album sells 1m in first week

Lady Gaga sold more than 1.1 million copies of her new album Born This Way and set a digital sales record last week - with an assist from Amazon.com.

Billboard announced that Born This Way debuted at No 1 on its Billboard 200 album chart, becoming just the 17th album to sell a million copies in its first week since SoundScan started tracking sales in 1991 and the top-selling digital debut.

The dance pop provocateur is just the fifth female with an album that sold more than a million copies in the SoundScan era.

Lady Gaga's first No 1 album sold the most copies of any debut since March 2005 when 50 Cent's The Massacre sold 1.14 million. The last million-selling album was Taylor Swift's Speak Now in November.

Amazon's attention-grabbing download price of 99 cents last Tuesday and Thursday helped drive Born This Way to an unprecedented 662,000 in digital sales, pushing the album to nearly three times initial estimates by Universal Music Group. Amazon sold more than 440,000 of those copies alone.
