(Newser) – In the two days since she performed at the Super Bowl, Lady Gaga's sales have spiked massively, USA Today reports. Nielsen Music reported that Gaga has sold 125,000 song downloads since the big game, a 960% increase from the day prior to the game, and 23,000 album downloads, which puts her up 2,000%. Spotify also reported that the songs she performed Sunday are up 674% and her entire catalog is up 605%, while Pandora noted that demand for the Gaga streaming station is up 1,400% compared to last week. (The singer may have pulled a fast one at the game.)
