'The Fame' is back on top for the fourth time

Lady Gaga‘s debut album ‘The Fame’ has shot back to the top of the UK album chart for the fourth time.

The ‘Telephone’ singer has become the second female solo artist to achieve such a feat after Dido did the same with her second album ‘Life For Rent’ between 2003 and 2004.

‘The Fame’ debuted at Number Three in January 2009 before hitting the top spot in April that year, where it stayed at Number One for four consecutive weeks, according to the Official Charts Company.

It returned to the summit again on two separate occasions, each for a week, in March 2010 before returning to the top again today (April 11).

Gaga‘s debut has spent a phenomenal 48 weeks in the Top 10 since its release and it has never been out of it this year.
