Lady Gaga is still enjoying the praise of her powerful halftime performance at the Super Bowl LI, and her music sales are too.
According to Nielsen Music, GaGa’s digital sales rose over 1,000% on the day of the Super Bowl.
On Sunday, the pop star sold over 150,000 digital songs and albums in the U.S. alone. In comparison, she sold about 15,000 songs and albums the day before the big game, making it a significant increase.
On Super Bowl Sunday, the singer also had more digital and physical sales than she did the whole week of Feb. 2 when accounting for sales. During that week, she sold around 30,000 units, with nearly 26,000 coming digitally.
Lady Gaga’s 13-minute halftime set included “This Land is Your Land” and “God Bless America.” She also sang three of her No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hits: “Born This Way”, “Poker Face,”, and “Just Dance.” Over 111.3 million people watched the Atlanta Falcons face off with the New England Patriots.
The singer appears to recognize how important it is to seize the moment and capitalize on her recognition by millions of viewers. Not long after the big game ended, GaGa announced her 2017 Joanne World Tour on social media. The tour is her first as a headlining solo artist since 2014.
On social media, the show seems to have gone exceedingly well. Everyone from Katy Perry to Hillary Clinton are praising Gaga for her incredible performance.
Hillary Clinton tweeted Sunday that she is one of 100 million fans that went “GaGa” for the lady and her inspiring message.
Jow Biden, Former Vice President says the show was “incredible.”
Marco Rubio, Florida Senator, applauds the halftime performance. Calling it one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows he can remember.
Actor Chris Pratt put on Twitter that her performance was “freaking awesome.”
And Katy Perry, the headliner for the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show in 2015, is also a huge fan.
