Australia: Lady Gaga Scores Chart Triple With 'A Star Is Born'

Australia: Lady Gaga Scores Chart Triple With 'A Star Is Born'

Forget about chart doubles, Lady Gaga has done the chart triple Down Under. Gaga's new blockbuster movie A Star Is Born with Bradley Cooper shines brightly atop the box-office chart, while its soundtrack and theme song "Shallow" hit number one on the official ARIA charts.

The movie, which marks Gaga's big screen and Cooper's directorial debut, opened at No. 1 at the Australian box office with $8.39 million over its debut week—more than the rest of the Top 10 combined.

On the Australian Recording Industry Association albums chart, A Star Is Born moves to No. 1, becoming Gaga's third number one album after The Fame Monster (2010) and Born This Way (2011).

On the official ARIA singles chart, "Shallow" jumps up 16 spots to No. 1, earning Gaga her first number one single in seven years, and her fourth overall. She previously peaked at No. 1 with "Just Dance" (2008), "Poker Face" (2008), and "Born This Way" (2011).

Australia is one of the many markets the A Star Is Born went number one in. The soundtrack album previously topped the charts in the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, South Korea, Sweden, and more.
