Lady Gaga's latest album 'Born This Way' stormed to the top of the UK charts last night, after selling more copies than the rest of the top 10 combined.
With more than 215,000 sales, the record has achieved the biggest first week for an album so far this year, the Official Charts Company said.
The singer -- famed for her outlandish outfits -- said: "I feel so honoured to have the highest first week sales this year."
Lady Gaga's debut album 'The Fame' joined her latest offering in the top 10 this week, climbing to number seven from last week's position of 11.
Her new entry knocks former queen of the charts Adele off the top spot.
The star, who has spent 16 of the last 21 weeks at the top of the Official Albums Chart, occupies the next two slots with albums '21' at number two and '19' at number three.
Lady Gaga also fared well in the Singles Chart, with three tracks in the Top 20.
