Lady Gaga’s ‘Perfect Illusion’ Hits Number 1 on UK’s Trending Chart (Video)


Lady Gaga’s ‘Perfect Illusion hit the number 1 spot on the UK’s official Trending Chart this week, as well as the top spot on the Billboard Twitter Top Tracks chart.

Released just last Friday, September 9th, ‘Perfect Illusion‘ is also poised to take one of the top 5 spots on the latest UK Singles Chart when it’s released.

Interestingly too, Gaga‘s promotion of ‘Perfect Illusion‘ kicked off in London last week instead of in the U.S., with a co-hosting gig by the singer on BBC Radio One’s Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, and a surprise appearance later on that day at London’s Moth night club, where she sang the song live.

It’s no wonder really then that the track is doing so well in the UK.

Other artists on the UK’s official Trending Chart are Sia at number 2 with ‘The Greatest‘, Olly Murs‘ ‘You Don’t Know Love‘ at number 4 and James Arthur’s latest single ‘Say You Won’t Let Go in the number 8 spot.

Now listen to Lady Gaga’s ‘Perfect Illusion‘ in the video below, and you’ll hear immediately why this song is doing so well. (And yep the video has almost 14 million hits already).
