The soundtrack from “A Star is Born” is back at the top of the charts.

The Hollywood Reporter reported the following Sunday:

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born soundtrack returns to No. 1 on the Billboard 200 for a fourth nonconsecutive week on top, as the set climbs from No. 3 with 128,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Feb. 28 (up 152 percent), according to Nielsen Music.

The album got a big boost from publicity and promotion spurred by its parent film’s showcase on the Feb. 24 Academy Awards.

I just saw this movie, and it was great. I’ll be having a full review later, but this news doesn’t surprise me. Did you all watch the Academy Awards? That duet together was incredible. (SLIDESHOW: These Are The Hottest Women On Instagram)

Of course people are going to go out and listen to more music from the film after seeing that performance. Bradly Cooper and Lady Gaga were on fire together.

Again, I’m going to do a full review later, but you guys need to see this movie. It is so damn good. It’ll have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish and not for the reasons you might think. (RELATED: Watch Bradley Cooper And Lady Gaga Perform ‘Shallow’ At The Oscars)

It’ll be interesting to see if Lady Gaga gets more acting opportunities in the future after her performance in “A Star is Born.”

I don’t know much about her, but she’s got some serious talent. If you can get me to watch a movie with a lot of singing and emotions, then you’re doing something right.
