With her latest number-one single "Paparazzi," Lady Gaga has become the first artist in the 17-year history of Billboard's Pop Songs chart to earn four No. 1s from a debut album, reports Billboard.com.
The singer previously topped the Pop Songs chart with "Just Dance," "Poker Face," and "LoveGame," from her debut release The Fame. On November 23, the album will be re-released in expanded form as
The Fame Monster.
Since the Billboard Pop Songs chart debuted in October 1992, two artists prior to Lady Gaga have earned three number-one singles from their first albums: Ace of Base and Avril Lavigne. Alanis Morissette also scored three lead singles from her first US album, Jagged Little Pill.
Songs appearing on the Pop Songs chart are determined and ranked based on number of mainstream top-40 radio airplay detections in the United States, as measured by Nielsen BDS. Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" took the lead for the tracking week of October 26--November 1.
