Recommended Posts

Lady Gaga has finally returned with a commercial pop era and has already taken her first step securing her top #5 solo. As many know, the hot 100 among other billboard charts are from the United States, so to help gaga in the biggest phonographic market in the world you need to buy as if you were a resident of the United States.

How to do this? Just follow the tutorial below, which has worked with several fanbases that put albums at #1 on Charts years after the release - of course, you can buy singles and anything. 

Tutorial: how fans living outside the United States can buy on Gaga's official site and make that purchase count for the Billboard Hot 100:

Spoiler

 

1- Enter the website https://shop.ladygaga.com/
2- Look for the “Rain On Me digital single” and add it to the cart.
* Add only 1 unit. If you want / can buy more, leave it to make another purchase separately*

3- Click on the cart icon in the upper right corner and press "Check Out"
4- Complete with your real email, the one you have access to and your real name

5- The address and phone number will be "fake", from the United States. You can use the this:

6- Confirm that you are not a robot and press “Continue to Payment”

7-  Select your payment method, we recommend the credit card.

8- After completing the purchase, you will receive an email. Click on "Download"

9- When clicking on download, a new page will open, in some cases, you can download the song several times. If this is the case, it is recommended that you download, close the page, open it again by clicking on download, and download again until your right to download the track runs out, usually after 10 times. The message “0 Downloads Remaining” will appear.

 

 

 Tutorial: how fans living outside the United States can buy on iTunes USA

Spoiler

 

1- You need to have a US Apple ID and use a gift card to purchase the single! Here's how you create an account. First, go to: https://appleid.apple.com/

2- When opening the site, drag to the bottom of the page and click on your country's flag in the lower right corner.

3- On the page that opens, scroll down and click on the United States flag.

4- You will be redirected to the main page, click on “Create Your Apple ID”

5- The account creation page will open, before you start filling in the data, drag it to the end and confirm that the United States flag is down there and that the page is in English.

6- Fill in the details with your name and real email. For address and phone, use the same ones used on the Lady Gaga website, or any of the images below.

7- When your Apple ID is ready, log in to iTunes. The only way to make purchases will be using an American gift card. You can buy one on one of the following sites: 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5. Check that the gift card you are purchasing is American.

8- After purchasing the gift card, you will receive an email with the code. Open iTunes back, search for "Rain On Me". You can probably buy two versions of the song: single version and album version, buy both.

 

 

Should I stream or buy music?

Both streams and pure sales are important and you can do both. Pure sales is just an easier way for you to help music performance. Streams can only hold a song in a good position on the chart only if they have a very large accumulation per week and honestly, only rappers can do that. Remember that these are the variables that make up the hot 100:

1- Radios - highest score

2- Pure sales - second highest score

3- Paid streams - third highest score

 

For those who live in the united states: in addition to iTunes you can buy on amazon music, google play or even on her website multiple times (purchase separately)

 

IT REALLY WORKS ON ITUNES?

Yes it works! but you need to buy the USA gift card. I just bought chromatica in pre-order and Britney Spears' Glory and worked perfectly. This is the method that ww fans are using to put “JusticeFor" on US iTunes. BTS worldwide fans use this method to buy "ON" - best debut of the year on digital songs so far. On iTunes you will probably be able to buy two versions: "Rain on Me - Single version" and "Rain on me - album version". 

 

IT REALLY WORKS ON  SITE STORE?

Yes, for sure! Barbz with "Say So" bundles and more recently Arianators with "SWU" bundles, everyone used this method on iTunes USA and Site Merch. This method is just not very popular in our fanbase yet. If you are going to buy more than once, make a separate purchase so that all copies count. Never buy more than one digital sales in the same purchase or more than one merch (which comes with digital sale) together. Always separately for each digital sale to count. Dont forget to redeem the code.

 

To have "Rain On Me" at #1 focus on pure sales, this is the most effective way that fans can help. Remember that the last #1s on the billboard reached the top by the number of PURE SALES.

  • 160.000 US paid stream = 1 pure sale

It's always good for her team to know about chart things, they know a lot of things and the first week of stupid love they really are to be congratulated but from the second week it was a nightmare on spotify (we know that on apple music there are only rappers). 

Never Really Over stayed for 3 months in the top 3 of today top hits on spotify and Stupid Love only for 48 hours. I hope Bobby gets a bigger check from interscope or even from Gaga since in this new contract she also profits from streams.  Payola on the radio too, literally everyone uses it and even used it for million reasons. Stupid Love is leaving the radio without any sub power or power rotation

Imagine an era with 4 singles with peak in the top 10? 😍 I think that if they make the right choice and investment it is possible. Never been so eager for her album like this since born this way

I always do the gift card thing it but this time I'm buying from their site! It's the easiest way.

Remember both Gaga and Ariana's store will be selling it.

That didn’t work for me. My purchase was cancelled and although I did receive the email with the download link I couldn’t retrieve the single. Maybe they check our IP?

However, iTunes purchases are often expensive and, thus, not everyone can afford it. i visited a site they listed the itunes premium codes check here
