Lady Gaga (USA, b. Stefani Germanotta) was the first female artist to sell 10 million copies of three singles worldwide: “Just Dance” (2008), “Poker Face” (2008) and “Bad Romance” (2009). More recently, Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born duet with Bradley Cooper, “Shallow” (2018), gave her a fourth 10-million-selling single to take her clear of Katy Perry, Rihanna and Adele, who have all completed their own hat-trick of 10-million-sellers.

Lady Gaga has appeared six times – more than any other female artist – on the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry’s (IFPI) annual Global Top Digital Singles chart: “Poker Face” (No.1 in 2009), “Just Dance” (No.4 in 2009), “Bad Romance” (No.2 in 2010), “Telephone” (No.4 in 2010), “Born this Way” (No.6 in 2011) and “Shallow” (No.8 in 2019). “Shallow” shifted 10.2 million copies worldwide in 2019.
