When we popped up our ‘Gaga Poll’ post just yesterday – asking where you thought Lady Gaga’s new single ‘Applause’ would debut on the ARIA charts, little snippets of the track had already started to find their way onto the net.
Earlier this morning, however, the whole single leaked and her record company peeps have been forced into action, rush-releasing the track to radio in the US a few hours ago and to Australian media mere minutes ago.
A release to the global iTunes store is imminent, all six days before the ‘Applause’ project was due to kick off.
This, naturally, will affect Gaga’s potential chart position here in Australia, with our charts calculated ’til 11:59pm on a Thursday evening. With only a few days of sales, will she be able to bullet to the top of the charts on debut off the back of strong sales?
Once again, we’ve got our little poll happening over there in the sidebar, so go ahead and have your say as to where you think ‘Applause’ will debut.
