“Million Reasons” Becomes Lady Gaga’s 14th Top 10 Hit
It looks like Lady Gaga has turned the Joanne era around, at least temporarily, thanks to non-stop promotion and heavy discounting. The album rebounds up the charts this week, landing at number 2 on the Billboard 200 with sales of 49,000 — lifting the LP’s total tally to 445,000. (Interestingly, The Fame Monster also returns to the top 10 at number 6). The good news for Mother Monster doesn’t end there. “Million Reasons” is a belated hit in the wake of the 30-year-old’s spectacular Super Bowl performance.
The track, which has been selling for half-price on iTunes since the event, crashes into the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 4. It becomes Gaga’s 14 top 10 hit and her first since “Dope” spent a controversial week in the upper reaches of the chart back in 2013. The song was always going to get a massive boost from the Super Bowl, but it has shown legs. The pop star’s country ballad is still sitting pretty at number 5 on iTunes and is slowly gaining ground at pop radio. Check out the video below.
