“Lady Gaga Rules the world!”
Lady Gaga has a following that may get her to the platinum level so quickly that the music world wont be able to follow. Her following is so large because of her honest nature and people feel they can relate to her music. There is no doubt that her new album will go platinum…or so it seems.
“Very Few albums go platinum anymore.”
No doubt it’ll exceed 1,000,000 sales worldwide, but in the current music scene, even for the biggest artists hitting the million mark in the US is an increasingly difficult thing to achieve. Very few people buy albums any more sadly, and so while I imagine it’ll go gold (500,000 sales), I don’t imagine it’ll hit platinum, or at least not anytime soon.
Over the course of her career, Lady Gaga has never released an album which has failed to go platinum at least once. This new album has been talked about massively in the press and has received great reviews, however these are new times. We are in a time where it is extremely easy for audiences to get ahold of albums without purchasing them. This is made easy by platforms such as YouTube, Vimeo and other music networks.
I personally hope she does reach platinum as she is such a hard worker, but only time will tell.
