After all the speculation, Lady Gaga will indeed debut at #1 with her latest album, ARTPOP. The album takes the crown selling 258,000 copies. Billboard reports that Gaga's sales breakdown was 146,000 digital downloads, 57 percent of sales, and the rest were physical cds. This puts Gaga third in line for the highest debut by a female in 2013. Katy Perry opened with 286,000 and Miley Cyrus snagged 270,000. Good for all the ladies! You can read my review of ARTPOP here. It's good, y'all!! Check out her performance of the title track, my fave, below from her artRAVE event. WARNING: It's "arty". You can watch the entire artRAVE performance or each individual song on Gaga's VEVO channel.
