Beyond being one of the biggest movie releases of the year, ‘A Star Is Born’ serves as one of 2018’s most anticipated music offerings too.

Lady Gaga, who plays the character Ally in the Warner Bros production, takes centre-stage on the compilation – appearing on 13 brand new songs.

As reported, several songs from the set are rocketing their way up iTunes.

How is that factoring into its performance on the album tally?

The first week forecasts are in! Head below for details…

According to Hits Daily Double, ‘Star’ is looking poised to shine on the Billboard 200 with premiere numbers of…

140,000-160,000
[Sales Plus Streaming]
**********
120,000-130,000
[Pure Sales]

Per HDD, it’s currently too close to call for the top spot as Twenty One Pilots are tracking similar numbers for their latest release.

Can Gaga and co snatch the #1?

Whatever the case, the soundtrack is quite the triumph; it’s on-course to open strong, is being showered with praise by critics, and – given the awards buzz – is likely to have legs in the weeks and months ahead. A win on several fronts.

Go Gaga!
