    that Naked perf :D Is she a fan of Gaga? I've never doubted the fact she can sing, I've seen some old performances, it's just the aesthetics she serves are ridiculous sometimes.

    Does anyone else think L. Gaga split in 2009 and this is what’s left of Famega? Maybe should put this in the conspiracy forum.

    I've been enjoying all the singles since 2018 but didn't even realise there was an album until today :D

    That said, I'm IN

    oh Chrissy, doll, you'll love it. stream and help the good sis Amanda get that UK number one!

    my current jam of choice is Rumours - the "who's gonna love you if it ain't me, baby?" hook is IMMENSE! :disco: the whole song glitters and glides like nobody's business.

    international artists getting a UK #1 with their debut is actually quite rare - I saw the full list from this century somewhere, it just happens once or twice a year.

    I think she's going to lose out to Pop Smoke.

    I think I did on the previous page beb! but to be honest I'm hammering this album and every score has improved so LOON RATE INCOMING!

    07 Heaven
    08 Kings & Queens
    09 Naked
    08 Tattoo
    10 OMG What's Happening
    08 Call Me Tonight (a-yoooo!)
    10 Born to the Night
    10 Torn
    08 Take You to Hell
    10 Who's Laughing Now
    07 Belladonna
    10 Rumours
    05 So Am I
    09 Salt
    09 Sweet But Psycho

    a (considerably) stronger and more entertaining debut than The Fame, and that's the tea on that. :emoji_coffee:

    Call Me Tonight is a Tove Lo co-write and I think you can hear her at the end of the chorus. I reckon OMG will be another slow-burn hit for her, it's just so catchy.

    It's still already way outperformed my expectations. She never struck me as somebody who would shift albums, despite her singles success.

    I think I'd prefer to see the actual sales figure before throwing the phrase 'shift albums' around.

    I know it doesn’t REALLY mean anything, but on pure sales Ava landed at #3 and Pop Smoke was at #72 :D

    I see Who's Laughing Now finally charted in the UK at #93 this week.

    Based on her usual trajectory, I fully expect it to peak at #12 next July.

    Actually booms to #38. Given her only other top 100 was Sweet But Psycho just scraping the top ten, this is quite the result.

    Is that good?

    I'm not going to rate this yet but this album is a DREAM. That run from OMG to Rumours is relentless quality pop. She's tapped into a dead market and at least raised a finger out of the grave if nothing else but with FULL THROTTLE dedication to her chosen subject. From a current perspective, I relate it to the Welsh entry from Buttertart's Song For Moopy competition. It's splendid. If we were younger, we'd be creaming over this in a way we once did over Rachel Stevens' second creation.
