Lady Gaga Beats Oasis’ Chart Record


Pop superstar Lady Gaga has surpassed Oasis’ record of 134 consecutive weeks on the UK charts, the Guinness World Records have announced.

The singer’s debut album ‘The Fame‘ has now survived 154 weeks on the UK Album chart since it’s release in August 2008, and has moved beyond the record set by Oasis back in 1996. Lady Gaga will also enter the record books as ‘the most searched for female on the internet’.

In addition, fellow female star Pixie Lott has also broken a chart record, after her single ‘Boys and Girls‘ enjoyed a climb of 71 places when it went to number one in the UK last year, the biggest one-week chart jump in history.

Lady Gaga and Pixie Lott will now take their places in the 2011 edition of the Guinness World Records, who’s editor-in-chief Craig Glenday said: “Almost two years ago, Lady Gaga and Pixie Lott were not even around so it’s amazing they have broken these records. Every year, so many new music records are broken.”

Oasis do still hold the coveted record of being ‘The Most Successful Act of the Decade’ between 1995 and 2005 after spending an unprecedented 765 weeks in the Top 75 singles and albums charts over the course of the ten years.

The latest edition of Guinness World Records is released today (16/9).
