Lady Gaga Beats Out Eminem, Bieber & More For 2010’s Best-Selling Album

News

Lady Gaga may have ended her year on the suspiciously quite side, but her feats are showing face with a bang. According to her website, the aberrant pop star’s second major release The Fame Monster is standing tall as 2010’s best-selling album. 

Selling a total of 5.8 million copies worldwide, Gaga slyly beat out Eminem’s all-hailed Recovery ($5.7 million) as well as Justin Bieber’s seemingly unstoppable My Worlds ($5.6 million). 

Dropped November 18, 2009, Gaga’s zippy 8-track album was originally intended for a re-release of her acclaimed debut, The Fame, but the 24-year-old visionary insisted on spotlighting those tracks in their own space. 

Gaga is currently prepping for the 2011 release of her third album, Born This Way with plans of debuting it’s first single New Year’s Eve.
