Monday, May 30


(Billboard) - Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" album made its expected powerful arrival to the U.K. chart Sunday (May 29), with the biggest first-week sale of the year here of 215,000 units, more than the rest of the top ten titles combined. "Give Me Everything" by Pitbull featuring Nayer, Afrojack and Ne-Yo, meanwhile, starts a second week atop the singles chart.

Lady Gaga's opening U.K. sales narrowly beat Adele's first-week tally of 208,000 for "21" in late January. "Born This Way" is joined in the top ten by its predecessor "The Fame," which rises 11-7 and now has U.K. sales of more than 2.5 million copies, according to the Official Charts Company. Gaga also has three singles in the top 20, with "Judas" falling 8-9, the "Born This Way" title track 16-17 and "The Edge of Glory" 6-18. "Hair" fell 13-68.

"21," which had spent 16 of the previous 17 weeks at No. 1, dips to No. 2, but Adele's previous album "19" holds steady at No. 3. The first single from the current album "Rolling In The Deep" moves back 34-26, as the "Glee" cast version of the track debuts at No. 49.
