Lady GaGa Breaks Another U.S. Record With 'Bad Romance'
Lady GaGa has scored another U.S. pop chart record thanks to the radio success of her new hit "Bad Romance". Networks monitored by Billboard Pop Songs countdown compilers at Nielsen played the track an average of 84 times last week, taking the tune past Leona Lewis' "Bleeding Love" and making it the most-played song in any seven-day period in the chart's 17-year history.
In total, "Bad Romance" hit the airwaves 10,859 times - almost 200,000 more than "Bleeding Love" was played in May, 2008. As a result, Lady GaGa claims a third week atop America's radio-play Pop Songs chart. GaGa also claims the fifth most-played tune - her "Poker Face" enjoyed a 10,379-radio play week in 2009.
Lady GaGa recently appeared in Oprah Winfrey's TV talk show on January 15, just hours after she was forced to cancel her gig due to illness. The singer was originally set to perform at Purdue University in Indiana on January 14, but pulled out after paramedics discovered she had an irregular heartbeat due to exhaustion.
