It seems Canadians have officially gone goo-goo for Lady GaGa.

The 22-year-old dance-pop singer's debut album "The Fame," led by the hit singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face," rose to No. 1 on the Canadian album charts this week.

The set sold close to 7,000 copies, according to data compiled by Nielsen SoundScan.

The big move sent Nickelback's "Dark Horse" (6,000) out of the top spot and down to No. 2, while Britney Spears' "Circus" (5,000) held on tight to the No. 3 slot.

The "Twilight" soundtrack continued its climb up the standings, moving from No. 6 to No. 4, Taylor Swift's "Fearless" remained at No. 5, and the "MuchDance 2009" compilation sank two to No. 6.

Rounding out the top 10 was Akon's "Freedom" at No. 7, AC/DC's "Black Ice" at No. 8, Kanye West's "808s & Heartbreak" at No. 9, and Pink's "Funhouse" at No. 10.

In the U.S., Taylor Swift claimed the top spot once again, followed by Nickelback in second, Kanye West in third, Beyonce in fourth, and the "Twilight" soundtrack in fifth.
