After an amazing debut at the box office over the weekend, the film A Star Is Born and its soundtrack (on Interscope) are proving to be a powerful combination on the charts. As “Shallow” holds at #1 on the all-genre list at iTunes in the U.S. and several dozen countries globally, which we reported on last week, the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper set is poised to enter at the top of the next Billboard 200 list with first-week consumption of over 200,000 units in its first week. Impressively, two versions of the album are still in the top ten on both Amazon and iTunes, a sign of its dominance over the market. In addition to “Shallow”, a number of cuts made the top five on the songs chart at the latter platform, including “Always Remember Us This Way” and “Is That Alright?”, both peaking at #2, and “I’ll Never Love Again”, which sits in the top ten in both an extended version (#3) and a film version (#10) at the same time. Overall, the album’s 34 cuts, featuring short bits of dialogue in-between songs, have generated a combined total of 47.5 million streams at Spotify, again led by “Shallow” (19.4 million), as that single and “Is” are also in front at Shazam with 209,000 and 40,000 tags, respectively. This Star continues to shine.
