Lady Gaga's latest hit single "Shallow" with Bradley Cooper soars into the top five of the Billboard Hot 100, rising 28-5. The song, which appears on the soundtrack for A Star Is Born, becomes Gaga's eleventh top five hit in the United States. "Shallow" is the Hot 100's top digital sales gainer, reigning atop Digital Song Sales for a second week (71,000, up 21 percent). The duet enters Streaming Songs at No. 34 (13.4 million, up 61 percent) and sports 5.1 million in all-format radio audience (up 176 percent).
But "Shallow" is not the only track from the movie charting on the Hot 100 this week. The film's final song, the power ballad "I'll Never Love Again," makes a top forty debut at No. 36, while "Always Remember Us This Way" and "Is That Alright" enter the chart at Nos. 41 and 63 respectively. Plus, Bradley Cooper earns his first solo hit with "Maybe It's Time," which lands at No. 93.
Even more impressive are Lady Gaga's placements on the Hot Digital Song Sales chart: her songs occupy the entire Top 4, making her the first artist to achieve this. "Shallow" spends a second week atop the chart with 71,000 digital downloads, while "I'll Never Love Again," "Always Remember Us This Way," and "Is That Alright?" debut at Nos. 2, 3, and 4 respectively.
"Shallow" is expected to strengthen further on next week's chart, as it sits atop the iTunes chart while gaining in both streaming and airplay. Will "Shallow" become Lady Gaga's fourth No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
