The single notched up 779,000 sales on downloads alone to top the chart, and her first UK release Just Dance is the third most downloaded with 700,000.Kings of Leon featured at numbers two and four with their hits Sex on Fire and Use Somebody. La Roux's In For The Kill came in at number five. This was the most recent release in the top 10, first charting in March.

Lady Gaga, whose debut album The Fame was released this year, said: "I am honoured to be the songwriter and performer behind the number one and number three all-time most downloaded songs in history in the UK." The fact that the top five tracks were all released within the past 12 months indicates how important download sales now are to the music industry - digital sales now account for around 98% of the singles market.
