Who said the music industry is dead?

As many had predicted, Lady Gaga sold over 1 million copies of ‘Born This Way’ in its first week of release. The exact number is 1.11 million copies, according to EW.com, making it the 10th-highest debut for a CD, and the best-selling debut since 50 Cent’s ‘The Massacre’ sold 1.14 million copies in March 2005.

Of course, Gaga’s numbers might have been influenced by her deal with Amazon.com, which sold her CD for just 99 cents. But it’s still an impressive feat at a time when less and less people seem to be buying CDs.

The last artist to reach 1 million sales in their first week was Taylor Swift, who sold 1.05 million copies of ‘Speak Now’ in November 2010. Pop group ‘NSync still holds the record for most album sales in one week, with 2.42 million copies of ‘No Strings Attached’ sold in 2000.
