Both "Joanne" and "The Fame" are heading back to the top 10 following Gaga's halftime show.
In the wake of Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime performance on Feb. 5, the pop diva is aiming to place two albums inside the top 10 of next week’s Billboard 200 albums chart. Industry forecasters suggest her most recent studio effort, Joanne, could leap from No. 66 to No. 2 with around 70,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 9. Meanwhile, her debut album The Fame may re-enter the list, straight into the top 10, with around 40,000 units.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the new Feb. 25, 2017-dated Billboard 200 chart -- which could feature both Joanne and The Fame -- is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, Feb. 12.
