Lady Gaga is definitely breaking Â the million mark on albums sold for Born This Way…I knew she would! Gaga is projected to sell over 1.15 million copies! Even with Amazon’s crazy .99 cent album price Gaga was already on her way to the million mark!
Billboard projects that Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” will debut with first-week sales of at least 1.15 million units, far outpacing earlier projections, thanks to explosive sales at Amazon, which priced the album at 99 cents for two days this week. This would make it the biggest debut since ‘NSYNC’s “Celebrity” in 2001, which bowed with 1.88 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
According to sources, “Born This Way,” scanned 330,000 units at Amazon on Monday, even though the unprecedented traffic derailed the Amazon servers. While the Amazon experience left some consumers in a sour mood, the news on the technical glitch helped heighten awareness about the album (not that Interscope and Lady Gaga needed any help in that department).
