Lady Gaga (34) can officially call herself Queen of Pop. The singer managed to climb to the top of Bloomberg’s ‘Pop Star Power Ranking’ after the release of her highly anticipated album ‘Chromatica’.
Lady Gaga released ‘Chromatica’ last month, the record with which she returns to pop/dance music after almost ten years. The album scores so well that it puts Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny on the throne as the biggest pop star in the world.
Every month Bloomberg reviews the ‘Pop Star Power Ranking’ list, and thanks to the great success of the new record, Gaga is at the top.
Chromatica was the top-selling album in the U.S., with 400,000 copies sold in June. The singles’ Stupid Love’ and ‘Rain On Me’ also pushed her to the top on Spotify, where she was the most listened artist in June. She was also the most popular on YouTube, with 188 million views.
The album is Gaga’s long-awaited return to pop music and her first breakthrough in the streaming era. The singer started her career when physical album sales and digital sales on iTunes were still the best way to release music.
For ‘Chromatica’, she released the soundtrack of ‘A Star Is Born’ and the jazz record ‘Cheek To Cheek’ with Tony Bennett.
