Madonna's Global Single Sales

Recommended Posts

Still I can't accept and can't understand the failure of Ghosttown!I really can't make peace with this...

 

That's because of Ageism especially in the UK, radio won't play her, if Rihanna released Ghosttown, it would of been number one everywhere

Note [by Nichu94]: Some singles sales may be a bit off, but the overall picture is what matters for this type of work. And, overall, it looks amazing. Regarding sales of some of her 80s singles, it seems like MJD reworked some of his US estimates. For instance, I clearly remember him putting "Material Girl" at 1,2 million copies (only physical) in the US. Which would lead at least to a 2 million worldwide total, instead the 1,6 million he has now estimated.

Looks like someone uploaded the lq demo version of track "Behind Me" featuring Guido Dos Santos with a discount on itunes!

 

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/behind-me-feat-guido-dos-santos-single/id1236518662

 

And it's charting too icon_lol.gif

#99 Spain
#109 Mexico
#123 Denmark
#188 United Kingdom

 

It probably has something to do with this: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/fbi-gives-hollywood-hacking-victims-surprising-advice-pay-ransom-1001515
