Lady Gaga's Fans Pulled off an Amazing Stunt To Get Shallow To Number 1
Lady Gaga "Shallow" reached number #1 spot on Billboard after a fan pulled an amazing streaming trick on the Internet.
"A Star Is Born" leading song "Shallow" ranked at the number one position in Billboard's top 100 after a fan tricked people creating a fake Starbucks promotional campaign.
The advertisement had a fake photoshopped image of the Starbucks coffee which offered a free drink voucher to the social media user if they posted a screenshot of themselves streaming the song.

The 18-years-old crazy fan Nico told Buzzfeed:
“Well since rumors of ‘Shallow’possibly going number one on Billboard started I knew I had to do something to help her out with sales and streams but I didn’t know just what to do at first. Then one day when I was going home from school I passed by a Starbucks and got the idea last minute."
The spam helped Lady Gaga overcome Ariana Grande's #1 chart song '7 Rings'.

I can’t believe Shallow is #1 on the Hot 100, and the soundtrack is #1 as well. This is my first #1 song in 8 years, and it feels like Just Dance going number one all over again. Rule #1: Never give up. Rule #2: Always listen to rule #1. Thank you so much to all our beautiful fans. You make my dreams come true. #Shallow #AStarIsBorn 📸: FIA Pictures
