Lady Gaga is on course for a big splash at the top of the U.K. albums chart on Friday – her new release, Chromatica, is outselling the rest of the top 20 albums put together.

The album, featuring her hits Stupid Love and Rain on Me, is sure to become the singer’s fourth number one in the U.K. and Chromatica has already become 2020’s fastest-selling vinyl album based on just three days of sales.

Meanwhile, her Rain on Me collaboration with Ariana Grande has stormed to the top of the U.S. charts, three days after it debuted at number one in the U.K.

The track becomes Gaga’s fifth Billboard Hot 100 number one and Grande’s fourth, making her the first artist in history with four number one debuts, breaking a tie with Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey and Drake, who each have three chart-topping rockets.

Megan Thee Stallion’s Savage, featuring Beyonce, drops to two on the new Hot 100, while DaBaby’s Rockstar, featuring Roddy Ricch, rises to three.

The Weeknd’s Blinding Lights and Doja Cat’s Say So complete the new top five.
